Memo Board for Courtney

Hello everyone and happy Friday to you!
I've got a quick post to share with you today then it's back to work for me.  I'm putting the finishing touches on the baby shower project I've been working on and hope to share it with you soon.

If you are looking for the "Rainbow Party" Blog Hop that I took part in this week, you can see that post HERE.  You still have time to check it out and leave a comment for a chance to win my little give-away.  I'll be posting the winner's name on Monday.

My son called me recently to see if I could put together a little something for his girlfriend's birthday.  Courtney just graduated from Auburn University and is about to be entering the world of employment and all the "busyness" that goes along with it, so I thought that maybe a pretty memo board would be helpful when it comes to keeping up with appointments, interviews, and those never-ending "to do" lists.  I knew that I wanted it to be pink and blingy and I found the perfect memo board to work with at Office Depot....

I love that this is half magnetic/white board and half pretty bulletin board!

I pulled out some pretty pink vinyl and cut Courtney's initials using the Cricut cartridge "Nursery Rhymes".  The outside letters are cut at 3 inches and the middle letter is cut at 4 inches.  After placing them on the magnetic board, I added some clear gems for a bit of bling....

I also added a clear gem to the center of each black button on the bulletin board side.

Next, using the "Flower Shoppe" cartridge, I made 3 flowers from the "Ooh La La" paper stack and glued each of them to the top of  a magnet using my hot glue glue.  I love the way the flowers add a punch of color.....

And there you go!  This was really quick and easy to put together and I think it turned out super cute.  Happy Birthday Courtney!

Ok, it's back to work for me.  I hope you all have a wonderfully fabulous weekend, and I'll be seeing you soon!

Until next time,
