Altered Clippie - Chore Chart Holder

I'm such a list maker that I thought it would be fun to have a cute clippie to stick post it notes or a list to. The clipboard is recycled from work..they were going to throw them away, so I confiscated them for my project stash. The soon-to-be-released "Domestic Goddess" Hanna stamp set is PERFECT for clipboards...wouldn't it be a fun kid's chore chart, too?

The super-bright striped paper is from "Piggy-Tales", Ba-Ba black sheep collection. I paired it with my fave polka dot daisy d's cherry tomato paper. The chipboard letters were actually a knock-off brand from Wal-Mart.... I was in a pinch and wanted some fun glitter letters, but they only had plain chipboard ones. So I compromised, bought the green letters & then glittered them up with a glue pen and dazzling diamonds glitter.

I took misc. images from the stamp set and stamped them in a line going down the paper to make it look like the cleaning tools are part of the paper.The flower is a K & Company 3-d sticker from Michaels. The striped paper was mod-podged onto the clipboard.
Here's a close-up of the glitterfied letters!
