Altered Bingo Board

My shopping list pad finally ran out, it was an Edwardian Lady M&S one I got for my birthday last year, stuck to a board with a couple of magnets on the back & a pen holder.

So I pinched the magnets & the pen holder & bought a Bingo Board & a pack of 4 jotter pads for the princely sum of £2.70!! (I suspect if I'd have gone to the pound shop this would have been even cheaper!)

Cue a bit of BG Recess PP, my FAVOURITE Tilda & a bit of Hanglar Stanglar for good voila!!

The letter stickers are doodlebug highlighted with white gel pen (lurve that funky font!!) & the stamping is done with Tilda brown Staz-on & Distress inks... a fairly quick project for me & something I will actually use on a regular basis! Yay me!!! :D:D:D

A close-up of Tilda...

The hardest part was making the hole for the pen-holder to fit in, I did this by using my crop-o-dile to make the general shape & filed down the rough edges with precision files.

I would like to enter this for the following challenges

A Spoonful of Sugar & C.R.A.F.T Challenge Who are asking for "Anything But Cards"
Creative Inspirations who would like to see "Plain & Simple" and...
Stamp Something who are looking for "Something Funky".

  5. Hi Nikki,
    I haven't made time to say 'Hello' in too long & I feel bad about that. This is brilliant & looks amazing. Won't be long now before you're putting 'nappies' at the top of every list, LOL!! I hope you are feeling a bit more prepared now than you said you were in your last post! I did not realise we worked for the same 'boss'!! Which office are you in? Not sure how many posts you'll get in between now & the big event. But I look forward to seeing piccies when your new addition arrives. Wishing you & your family all the very best.
