Karin on the Lawn Fawnatics blog "Inspired by a book, movie, song or show"


Hi Everyone!
I'm here to share more inspiration for the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. This time our theme is to be "Inspired by a book, movie, song or show" and this is my second take:

I have always loved the story about Matilda by Roald Dahl and laugh extra hard at the part where the teachers dream of telling the parents of their student the truth about their children. I used the classic book cover as inspiration for a note book that I will use at work (if you don't know already I am a high school teacher (-: )

For Matilda I used the girl from the Bicycle built for You - the books are from DEN SWEET DEN  and the letter for NOTES are from Cole's ABC.
