SFC3414 - Help me go 'round' the block!

Hello my friends!
Can you believe we are at the end of August already???
Today I have a card to share with you that was created as my DT creation for the new challenge up today at the Squigglefly Blog and it is all about  


Since it is BACK TO SCHOOL time here in Ohio and I'm sure many other states, I turned this fun 'NotePad and Pencil' image by James Horvath into a 'book and pencil' ... World History book to be exact!  Sure hope James doesn't mind!  LOL!  
History was one of my favorite subjects in school and I still really enjoy watching documentaries and TV programs about the history of our world ... just fascinating!!!

 Ooops sorry, I'm getting a bit off track ...

Since our challenge today is 'no square corners' I've rounded ALL my corners and used rounded embellishments (Frantic Stamper 'Gear Collage' die).  I actually split the die cut in half to position on the top & bottom corners of my focus image.  Tearing and distressing was used to give my card an 'aged' look and of course 'back in the day', twine was used to secure documents and maps.

I hope you'll get around to joining in our challenge!
Just remember 'no square corners'!  I can't wait to draw inspiration from what you create!
The team really had fun with this one ... COME CHECK IT OUT!

Now let's see if there are other challenges I can share in today ...
