I'm Not Crafty...but I Monday Made It!

 Like the title says, I'm not crafty at all.  I just don't have that creativity gene.  Somehow I was put in charge of making a board for memories for my dad's Surprise 50th Birthday Party.  At the last minute.  I quickly rushed out to get supplies and get started.  Hoping for the best!  (sorry for the awful pictures, I was in a hurry!)

I started with a bulletin board, wrapping paper, ribbon and flags I created with clipart from Lettering Delights

I put the wrapping paper on the bulletin board and arranged the letters across the top.

Then I decided that they looked better like this:

And wa-la!  A bulletin board for memories.

So that's the extent of making things so far this year.  I'm definitely considering this a Monday Made It!
