Be Inspired # 41- Anything but a card

I finished this project late Friday night before leaving for the beach trip. Put your thinking caps on and create or alter something for this week's challenge at Cuttlebug Challenge blog! I purchased some acetate from my Design Diva pal, Deanna. I embossed the edge with my Cuttlebug embossing folder. The wooden clothes pin is from Nicole Crafts.

I painted the clothes pin with white acrylic paint, then covered both sides with 6x6 BasicGrey Lemonade papers. I cut a piece of chipboard and covered that with more yummy BG papers, attaching the acetate with four DCWV mini brads. I think this will make a great "Honey do" list for the kitchen desk...I just need to find my Vis-À-Vis pens. Acetate is not just for teachers and overhead projectors any more :)
