Change Does You Good!!

Over the Easter Weekend, I wanted to craft as much as possible in between visiting friends & resting. I fancied a total change from all the usual things I do & made myself this snazzy clipboard!
I kept the clip silver as I love them. The papers were in a £1 kit from the Poundshop, which caught my eye while buying the obligatory teabags! The "Paula" is made from Machins air drying clay & painted pale lilac. The centre of the blossom is an upside down bottlecap filled with beads & stuck together with Anita's 3D Gloss. The mini clipboard with my pic is Rob & Bob Studio. Happy is a chipboard word given to me by my teamie Rach, made by Heidi Swapp. Blossom 35p from Dunhelm.
Bubble words from a sheet of girl things, £1.49 from The Works. The pink spotted section is covered in pva glue to make it shiny so post it notes stick. The pockets were made to house notepads , the large pocket is 3D to allow room for quite a thick stack of paper. The very slim pocket houses a bazzill homecrafted clipboard complete with mini pink clip from any good stationery shop. Mine came in a tub of 100 mixed for £1 from Poundshop.
I had tremendous fun making it & hope it inspires others to have a go!!
