I cut my image and embossed it using a Spellbinder's Rectangle Nesties die template. Glossy accents finishes off the pencil jar for a realistic touch. A tied Vintage White/Cream button was used on the word notes in place of the letter *o*. And check out the little tiny pencil above the words. That comes with the Take Note set...so cute! I used an EK Success border punch for the little scalloped edging under the words.
A little somethin' special for ya: Did you know that Ticonderoga pencils are the best pencils on the planet? Seriously. That's what Josey would say. They sharpen nicely, have smooth writing lead, good erasers.....the best. Get them. Pay a little extra to get *the gooder* pencils. Thank me later when you're not sharpening the crappy pencils down to the nub because the lead keeps breaking. ;)
