Having fun with Roxie and Sophia

As some of you may have heard Macie and Raina are fund raising for their trip to Washington DC. We've made a ton of clipboards, notebooks, and I've supplied a large pile of cards thanks to the many swaps I have participated in over the years.
Well last week we had a Mary Kay consultant stop by our table. She loved the clip boards but instead of using them for pictures she wanted lap boards to hold order forms for her parties. Lucky for me Mary Kay has this big thing with roses, bees and zebras. Roxie fit the bill perfectly. I added the little bee from a retired stampset I had and got creative.
So here is the sample board I made up for her approval. If she approves I'll be making 11 more of these.
She also asked for a matching 3-ring binder for her to keep her business organized. Of course thanks to the CTMH bulletin boards and Dana's post about her binder I knew exactly what she was after. I'll be making that after I get approval for her boards.
The next gal that stopped by liked our small boards but wanted something more durable for her small daughter and it needed to be pink, pink, pink, princess, and pink. Did I mention it had to be pink?
So I took off the 4th of July paper from a board we hadn't been able to sell (the small boards just aren't that popular), put on some Sophia, cut out her name using the new Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and made this very pink board. In fact that was the first thing Kathy (my twin sister) said, "It's sooo pink."
A little mod podge and voila a very pink, princess board to entertain a little princess while in the back seat of the car.
By the way, these are the first things I have ever mod podged. It was totally fun. So I don't know which is worse, my new cricut cartridge or mod podge. I'm having way too much fun with all of it!
