Altered Clipboard

My mother-in-law had surgery this week, and it will be a couple of months until she is up and around again. She is a quilter, crochet, knits, sews, and dabbles in scrapbooking and card-making. So I thought I would make her something pretty to look at while she is recovering and doing her handwork.
This is a simple 6 x8 clipboard that I covered with CTMH Notebook paper and some of the Stickease. I covered the back as well. (Just a little tidbit for those of you that alter, I have found that I really like Martha Stewart's decoupage glue & sealer. It has a brush in the cap, so there is virtually no mess!)
Some other things I used were Amy Butler 3-D glitter flowers, a large Gerbera daisy from the floral department at Michael's, and some random ribbon.
If you've never altered anything, give it a whirl! it's so much fun to play this way!!
