Moms and an Altered Clipboard

Happy Thursday! Thursday means that Friday is just around the corner. Yippee!

My last two projects for Pages From the Heart were revealed this week. The first was a layout I made featuring our beautiful moms on Easter.

The second project was an altered clipboard. I made a large clipboard earlier this year and when I found these miniature clipboards at Dollar Tree a few months ago I had to try it again! This time I skipped the Mod Podge and glued everything using Scrappy Glue.

As always, you can read the supply list and some more details about each of these projects on the Pages From the Heart blog. Thanks for reading and enjoy your weekend!

I Feel...WICKED!

Three years ago my husband took me to see the play Wicked. I saw it two more times after that because I loved it so much. I've had pictures from that first show I went to buried in my picture stash, waiting for me to decide how to use them. On the Shop Hop last year I came across the Wizard of Oz collection by Graphic 45 and then it sat there for a little while until I came up with this:

I still get choked up whenever I hear any of the songs from Wicked. My husband very patiently waited behind the Pantages Theater with me that night while I waited for the actors to come out and sign autographs. So I knew that I needed an extra special display for these pictures.

I used three acrylic transparencies and connected them with ribbon. I used paper from an old dictionary for the flowers. The title was printed on the computer and cut on my Cricut. This little display sits on my scrap desk and it still makes me smile!

I am linking this up to Scrap it With a Song, whose challenge just happens to be this exact song title! Thanks for looking!

Sending You a Little Hope in a Paper Bag Card

Hi everyone! The school year is quickly winding down but the craziness is cranking up! We have so many end of the year activities coming up in the next two weeks. Unfortunately, I also have to pack up my room but I'm hopeful that next year I'll get some kind of teaching position. So I guess sharing a project about hope today is appropriate! (I swear I didn't plan that!)

If you'd like to see more pictures, read up on how I made this and get the supply list, then head on over to the Pages blog.

Thanks for stopping by! Only 9 8 more days of school left...!
