It has to be said that I sometimes am a little forgetful, and find myself making lists for almost everything I do! Shopping lists, lists of jobs that need doing, even when packing for holidays I have to write myself check lists. I find them stuffed in my pockets and my bag ends up overflowing with little notes and reminders! This is why today's craft creation has been made - To help my memory! (I'm only 26 might I add, I don't even want to think of my mental capacity in another 26 years, Lol!).
I recently bought a chipboard house shape from a craft fayre and thought it would be perfect for a memo board. I covered it in decorative paper and stuck a 'post-it' style note pad to the centre. Sweeping Tilda seemed an ideal choice of decoration as my memos tend to be housework related and the Prima mulberry paper leaves were added for colour. (I also thought it looked sweet that Tilda was sweeping them up!)

I cut my 'MEMOS' wording using my Sizzix machine and added another touch of brightness with a turquoise Prima Obsession flower and Urban Cosmos Brad. I finished my memo board by adding 3 strips of self adhesive magnetic tape to the back, this way I can have my reminders on my fridge, somewhere I'm bound to notice!

Thanks for looking, Katie.

I'm thinking one of these might be good for me. I'm always forgetting things and like you always writing reminder notes. I'm a litle older than you and this is my excuse and I'm sticking to it....lol
Have a super day and your reminder board is really gorgeous
