Clipboard fun

Good evening fellow bloggers. Well I got my hands on the deluxe edition paper pack communique from Graphic 45. So I thought yep this is the perfect opportunity to alter my clipboard. So I set to work used some distress ink on the edges.

and cut some papers, covered a post it note pad, some Tim Holtz old photos and started to put it together.......and voila 

Loved making this as part of my DT for Jones crafts and I can see I will be altering some more. 
Things have started to settle down, I'm enjoying college and looking for another job as we speak. It's still weird not doing the same routine but have done some fun things the last few weeks. I will also have some exciting news to share soon, but until then my lips are sealed lol.
Hope everyone has had a good weekend.
Thanks for stopping by, I have appreciated all the kind words since losing my job it really has helped. 
Big hugs Elaine xxx
