Now here is my creation for the hop! I just love Gus and Stella...they crack me up and I thought they'd look great on this Message Board that I designed out of a wooden plaque that I got from the $ Store!

I made the cork board by gluing 2 coasters together. I then added a small pad of post-its and an RSVP pen, altered to match! The little chalkboard is another $ Store find...I just cut it down to the size I needed and then folded a piece of cardstock to hold the piece of chalk! I hung this in my craft room and I gotta looks pretty darn cute!!!

Now it's time to hop on over to Vicki's Blog and see what fabulous artwork
she has to share with us!!
