This weeks project -- DONE!

This week, in our weekly ARTSY time together being BRAVE girls-- my friend Peggy and I started a project
and I had to share it now that it is finished!  This thing came out soooo much more fun than Peggy and I imagined= and we will both cherish them!  I dug these huge clipboards out of the attic.  I have a stash of clearance Items in there for "just the Perfect time" and this was it!!  These clipboards measure: 18" wide X 20.
They were originally a magnet board covered with pink, brown, and green stripe fabric - and the cool thing is that there are 2 pockets at the bottom!  I originally thought it would go to Jensen's bedroom for her to use the magnets to hang up assignments, and photos.  BUT= Peggy and I decided a glossy black fabric would be a great background for us!!  So -- armed with spray paint-- and gloves, of course, we headed outside.  In 20 minutes they were transformed to these cool clipboards.
I wanted to use the Teresa Collins Notations line for mine- and I love love love the results.  I used Blingage and even the tags from the Notations album kit in the pockets.  I will likely write messages on these.  The last thing we did was to make a digital WORD project- and I framed mine with the Large ornate frame that is on the Cricut Baby Boutique cartridge.  I will hang it

on the outside of one pocket where those 2 little bling clips will hold it on!  The best part is that this project is a magnet board- so lots of options to add photos, etc.!
