altered apron shaped notice board

Hi all
I bought this fab apron shaped notice board ages ago from my local craft shop In House Interiors and Crafts on Milford Haven marina ...The apron shaped chipboard notice board is made by  candy box crafts and started life like is quite large at 35cm tall

I  received 6 brand new fantastic Grace Taylor 12 x 12  paperpads and embellishments from Trimcraft to work with [lucky me being on the DT for Trimcraft]..the pads are just beautiful ...they are called ..Parisienne chic, ...Happy Days...Modern Cabin...Home sweet home Lets Play and Springtime so many stunning patterns and some of the pads have 100 sheets to drool over ..I chose the parisienne chic to cover this apron notice board with and used some of the fab embellishments on it too that come as part of the range,the paper flowers are made using dies and papers from the parisienne pad....
