EEEP! I'm first! (no pressure)

Welcome to the September 2012 Back To School Virtual Stamp Night! Let's get this show on the road!

When I was a kid, I could not wait for the first day of school. Back then we didn't have the frenzy of Back-To-School shopping lists. Nope. All we needed was a 3-ring binder; a pencil holder that fit in the front of the 3-ring binder that held pencils (#2, sharpened), a pencil sharpener, a small ruler, maybe scissors; and best of all: notebook paper. White, with blue horizontal lines, and a red vertical line separating the three punched holes from the area in which you wrote. Ah, the good old days.

Did you know there were (maybe still are) different kinds of lined notebook paper? Yep. Some were narrower than others (smaller spaces between the lines) and some were *gasp* blank! Those were for geometry and physics. Just a bit of trivia for you.

My challenge is for you to incorporate notebook paper into your card. It can be real notebook paper (steal some from your kid's notebook), or a stamped image of notebook paper, or heck - computer-generate it! I'd just like to see something I recognize as notebook paper.

Have fun with it!
