Detour clipboard

Happy Monday! Hmmf - well Monday anyhow. Monday is never my favorite day though I really shouldn't complain.
Hubby, who is the owner/operator of a driving school, asked me a long time ago a while back to make him a new clipboard. Years ago I had made him up a fun clipboard to use while teaching. He loved it, but it was getting pretty worn and sad looking. I have had this fab Basic Grey paper in my stash for awhile just waiting to be used on a new clipboard. Well, I finally got around to it!
Now usually, I really like to add bits of a variety of matching ribbons tied to the clip part as well as a pencil or pen tied on and a few fun embellishments - ya know that's the fun pary - but hubby warned me to keep it simple and I'm quite certain he would have removed any excess that was not approved so |I restrained myself and kept everything as flat as possible!
These are also fun to make for teachers and I usually personalize them. I love giving teachers something they can actually use.
I would like to share my project at Cupcake Craft Challenges as this week's challenge is Anything but a card.
Thanks so much for all your lovely comments the last couple of days!

  1. Fabulous...I love when you add all that pretty ribbon. Your hubby's clipboard is in dire need of bling...wouldn't he love it? Lee-Ann :)

  2. Great clipboard! Perfect papers and I love the stop & go stickers on the clip.

  3. Your hubby definitely needs bling. Maybe sneak some jewels on there when he isn't looking, lol. Love it.


  4. A fabulous clip board, love it...thanks for joining us at Cupcake!
