It's a PINK Clip Board!

Good Morning everyone! Happy PINK Saturday! Thank you Beverly for hosting another beautiful PINK Day!

This is a craft I did a few years ago. I have made several of these over the years. I love them. Who likes to walk around with an ugly old brown clipboard? Next week, I will post a tutorial on them. Or this particular style. Oh, and there is a pencil cup to boot! And it is
PINK!

This is a 'cull' photo of my child. I have several beautiful photos from this shoot. I could not bear to throw it away. But I could Mod Podge.... And it did not go to waste.


The Clip Board has it's own Fru Fru!



I just love the pencil/pen cup. My mom and grandma had us making them all the time as kids, but, they never looked this cool or this PINK!


Oh that black ribbon and the black poka dots make the PINK really POP!!!


A nice gift set for a teacher, grandparent, parent or for yourself!

And this is really PINK!!!

Check back with me next week. I will post a tutorial on Beautifying your own clipboard and making a matching pencil cup. But meanwhile, stop by Beverly's place. She is hosting a wonderful fun PINK Saturday Party at How Sweet the Sound and see all the other PINK
Happy PINK Saturday! Saturday posts!

I really like the covered clipboard idea. I carry a clipboard all day at work. The design is wearing off. Maybe I should cover it and really make it stand out from all the other clipboards. Thank you for visiting my pink saturdays!
