Clip board madness!

The lovely Sarah sent me this clip board last year, with it was a note attatched saying that she had sent it to me cause she wanted to see what I would do with it.

Well thankyou Sarah, I did exactly what you had done with yours .... left it in its wrapper all lonely and begging to be altered!

I found it in a box under the stairs and decided I should make the effort to alter it. I plan on sending this back to Sarah now I have finished her challenge!


Close up of some of the lettering, and I added a white rub on to stop it looking so blank!



I couldn't leave the actual clip blank, so I added a row of small pearls and the used some ribbons tied roughly through the hole!




And finally ..... Drumroll please .....



I absolutely love the way this has turned out and I am also very chuffed that it looks pretty and worked on my first attempt!

Clipboard - Woodware
Papers used - MME Penny Lane, blue Bazzil
Punch - Xcut Simple Scallop
Alphabet - Thickers
Rub ons - From stash
Ribbons - All from mini rolls of Anitas
