Look What I Made!!! And New Flippy Books Coming Soon!

Yesterday I went scrapbooking and didn't accomplish much.

I did two pages from Halloween with my hubby and my mom as we passed out giant Pixi Stix at my house... hubby was a pirate and I was a hot witch!  :)

And then I made this clipboard:

I've made loads of these in the past, but have never Mod Podged them... so I Mod Podged this one to death and I LOVE IT!

I know- it's not buntings, but I liked these colors and had these papers on hand so I didn't have to buy anything extra to make it!

I've also been working on a new collection of comprehension flippy books.  Right now, I have them bundled together in one file... do you think would be better or should they be separate?

Here's a sneak peek at the "Making Connections" flippy...

I was going to go into my old classroom and get the last of my things today, but it's supposed to be around 100 degrees!  I think I'll park it at the computer and get these flippy books done instead!

Tonight the hubby and I are going to see the musical "Legally Blonde"!  I have seen it before with my mom, but it's so funny!  I was so psyched to see that a local theater would be putting it on!  Hopefully the hubs will enjoy it too!

  3. Very cute clipboard! I've always wanted to make one but haven't taken the plunge. Could you have the flippies separately and in a bundle?

  4. Isn't mod podge fun? I made these last summer for a welcome back gift to all my 1st grade team. They loved them!

  5. Do you have a camera in my kitchen? I'm doing the same thing with clipboards. So very cute! Did the modge podge make the paper bubble up at first? Mine did, but went back down later. I'm making them for the other teachers in my building....remember that's only five other teachers! Stay cool.
