Altered Memo Board

Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Mine was a busy one! Saturday we had lunch with my aunt who was in from out of town, did lots of Christmas shopping afterwards, and yesterday my little family and I went downtown to walk Michigan Ave. We saw the lights, walked tons, visited the LEGO store, ate at the Cheesecake Factory, and enjoyed being together.

I have an altered memo board to share with you today. It was a little cheap one dollar magnetic thing from Target. I used October Afternoon papers and my Cricut George & Basic Shapes cartridge to cut the various sized circles. The smallest yellow circle and large cream circle were hand stitched. The word "Love" was cut using the Sweethearts cartridge using cream paper and glittered. And last but not least, the large flowers were cut using the Accent Essentials cartridge. I cut it twice, inked the edges and layered them on top of one another for dimension.

I altered some clips I had in my stash with smaller flowers cut from Accent Essentials, buttons, and lots of glitter! I love that the clips stay in place and all I have to do is swap out the photos.

Do you think they have a self-help group to help me combat my obsession with glitter? ; )

The 3 buttons were threaded together......I was way too lazy to do each one individually!
Hope y'all have a great day! I am off to work! I was a bit spoiled having the last week off.......back to reality! : )
