And yet another project!

I am so excited!!!  This one, I think I will get a lot of use out of.  It was pretty easy once I figured out what I wanted to do.  I was on Facebook one evening and another consultant had posted one that she had made for Convention.( I will share the link and credits at the end of this post.)
  Mine is a little different as I am not using a Cast Iron Cookbook Stand to hold mine upright. 

I can tell you that I started with a white 22" round pressboard cake board and an 11" tan plastic Rubbermaid Lazy Susan, some Black acrylic paint and some unsanded grout.  

Do you have any idea what this is?

 I made my own chalkboard paint using 1 - 2 oz bottle of Black acrylic paint and about 1/4 cup unsanded grout  Mixed it well and painted both the cake board and lazy susan. (3 Coats each)  Once the paint was dry I took a piece of chalk and conditioned the boards, by rubbing the chalk all over them and then wiping off the dust.  

Now do you have an idea what it might be?

Ok, here is another hint.

I then took CTMH's silver glitter tape and put 4 strips across it in different directions making the pattern on it.  I used E6000 glue to adhere the lazy susan to the cake board, making sure to center it.  The glitter tape divides the chalkboard into sections for me to write different things in for different events.

Ok, it is starting to remind you of anything yet?

Here is what I did to finish off the project.
I took CTMH's silver glitter paper and cut a large arrow

from the Artiste Cricut cartridge on the Cricut.  And placed it in the center of the lazy susan.  I also cut out some letters. T, S, W, I, I, i, i, n, n, p, t, t and o.  I decided I wanted them to stay put, so I ran them through the Xyron 150 sticker maker with permanent adhesive in it.  I then lined them up on the lazy susan part of the board to Spell out the name of our very own,

Wait for it!  

Wait for it!
