Altered Clipboard

Years ago...nearly a decade ago...I altered a clipboard.  At the time, my husband was coaching my son's baseball team and I was the forever team mom.  I used it for years but the last few years it was just wasting space in my craft room...I didn't know what to do with it...I didn't need any longer.

I finally tossed it...I let go...I decluttered...

But I'd still like to share.

Here is the back.  I love this photo I took of my son's cleats on a muddy day.  I used patterned paper and modge podged over it.  I don't care for Modge Podge--it is always sticky for me.  There used to be a couple of other photos of my kids stuck to the back as well which I took off a few years ago, I don't remember why.

On the top, I had these circle tags which had photos of my son, my daughter (playing softball), and my nephew (who also played for my husband) and on the back I drew baseballs--again they were Modge Podged.

Since the front was mostly covered, I didn't do anything was sticky though...there is a spot where paper was stuck to it.

It was useful and it did it's job...but it was time to (as Elsa says) "Let it Go!"...

Thank you for looking!!!  Hope to inspire you to make a clipboard if you need one :D


  1. Hmmm... personally I wouldn't get rid of it.
    Since you personalized it... to me it's like a scrapbook page.
    It has memories on it, associated w/ it... but obviously you know best since it's yours!
    BTW - I still need to read your prior post (about your reading challenge).
    I love reading and discussing books so I want to read it when I have a chance to really absorb ALL your words!;0)

    1. Thank you. I kept the circle photos but toss the rest. I have a digital copy of the photos--it was just too bulky for me to save. maybe I will go back and recreate the back as a layout :)

  2. Linda! This is cute and I'm sure held sweet memories! I too remember being the forever team mom and snack bar dinners! That is pretty awesome you let it go! haha I like that! I need to do more of that! It's pretty free-ing!


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I love to read your comments! I usually reply to all comments, but I don't think a notification is given once I reply.

Also, I have been told that sometimes the comments do not show up...I do not know why that is...if it doesn't show up, then I don't see them.

Unless it is spam...I do not delete any comments. :(
