Back to School

I made this cute little mini clipboard magnet for a teacher gift. I used one of the counter top samples you can pick up at home improvement stores. I covered the rough side with cardstock. (I used cocoa because I wanted it to look like a clipboard with a sheet of paper clipped to it, but you could use any color and stamp it as you like.) I stamped the teachers intitial on white and used my tiny holepunch down one edge to give it the look of being torn from a spiral notebook. I covered it with a self adhesive laminating sheet to protect it from "messy little fingers."
(My camera did not like the shine that added, ooops!)

It has been a hectic few weeks with shcool starting back. I have 2 of the 4 kids gone for part of the day now. So maybe soon I can settle into my day and start getting some stampin' done in the afternoons.

Oh, And I did just complete 8 sets of swaps and have most of those pics waiting on my camera.
Hopefully I'll get them up in the next few days.
