Life is SWEET! Magnet board

I love to decorate everyday functional items to make them unique and extra special. This message board is bright and happy, and serves as a reminder that no matter how long the "to do" list is," life is SWEET"!

I added a second dry erase board to layer over the cosmo cricket delightful paper, I removed the board from its frame...a word of caution it was very sharp, and I recommend you cover all corners and edges with a layer of paper, especially if you put this in a child's room. Its a great way to have additional writing surface! The sticky notes serve as a quick shopping list, or to leave yourself {or kiddos} a quick note!

The title is cut with the cricut using straight from the nest cartridge, the original sentiment is life is tweet, I lopped off the "T" and added a big glittery "S" . The best thing about paper is that we can cut parts off and add what we want to personalize anything! I also embossed the words with the swirls folder, you all know how much I love texture!

What a bonus item this was! These three magnets came with the board, I just popped the stickers that came in the cosmo cricket kit, and they fit perfectly! {I never get that lucky}
This message center is in my daughters room in our summer cottage, but I think she needs one for school memos too! Any reason to create right???  :) So fire up your cricket, dust off you mod podge and make a magnet message center of your own, or get started on your Holiday gifts....yes its almost that time!

Happy Creating,
