Hi! The long weekend will be over in a couple of hours. Back to the grindstone. It's supposed to warm up here, in the 90's this week, back to summer, YAY!

I've had this Crafty clipboard in my head for awhile and I finally got around to making it. I used Crafty Secrets Creative Scraps Calendar & Girlfriends, the clipboard came from Office Depot.
I painted the clip with Crackle paint, when it dried and was nice and crackly I tried to paint on the Mod Podge it took the paint off. pffffft. So I covered it up with book pages and Mod Podged over the paper.


I covered the clipboard with book pages and inked up the edges with Ranger Distress Vintage Photo ink and a blender tool. Then the fun part, I cut out my scraps and arranged them how I wanted them on the cliupboard and glued thwm on with Mod Podge. I painted Mod Podge over the whole thing when I was done to protect the paper from use.

I threaded the vintage buttons with linen thread and glued them on with E6000.

I hope y'all had a great weekend. We just hung around here. It rained all day Saturday, I worked in the craft room yesterday and today we took the grandgirls to the park. They played with Pop on the swings and monkey bars while I walked around the walking path. A good day!
