My Fave Retreat Project

I have to admit that I don't often complete the projects we make at the Club Scrap retreat in a timely manner. I get the construction done during class, but when I get home life just gets in the way, and I don't get the item finished. This year, though, was different. Within a week I was done with the magnetic board project and it was on the wall outside my home office.

I actually wish I had taken a pic of my basic project before I started embellishing, but I did find one on the CS website!
This is pretty much the way mine looked when I finished Jac's class. But, I love the look of flattened bottle caps, so I didn't decorate mine (or put the magnets on the back) until I got home and pounded them with a mallet. Then I looked through my stash for flowers, leaves, and other dimensional embellishments to beautify my board. 

I challenge YOU to take a constructed project and finish it!
