Here's a terrific gift idea......a personalized calendar !!

I used Close To My Heart's "My Creations Album" to make this personalized calendar using Simple Pleasures level 1 paper pack and our August '08 stamp of the month.I also used antique brads, spiral clips, photo clips, and the brown ribbon rounds.The stamping was done with desert sand ink; the white core of the card stock was exposed by aggressive sanding technique to tie in the white of the album base cover. 7.5.08 Front cover of My Creations Album calendar My Creations Album, CTMH, calendar, Aug 08 SOTM,my creations album, calendar, ctmh, sotm 7.5.08 My Creations Album calendar, LO design #3 7.5.08 My Creations Album calendar, LO design #2 7.5.08 My Creations Album calendar, LO design #1

The 4 layout pages displayed (January, March, June, and August) are the 4 different layouts used 3 times for this calendar.
Our CTMH stamp of the month for Aug is used on the front cover. The month names are 2nd generation stamping technique with desert sand ink.
The pictures are of me, my husband, my twin daughters, and my sweet little Chihuahua, Nugget.

Barbara, first off - I love this calendar. It turned out excellent and I love the pictures most of all. You did a great job with this.
Second, I wanted to thank you so much for your kind words on my blog about the funeral yesterday. Thank you for your sweet words about the card. Of course you can use the idea, that's what it is out there for. She really liked it, because its something she can keep out and look at and think of me instead of the pain of what she is going through.
I commend you on your line of work. What an amazing world you must live in, and your words, even in not intended, gave me much comfort.

Thank you for everything you said!

Barbara, Great calendar idea! I also wanted to thank you for your kind words on my card! My surgery was a complete success, and I am tired, sore and glad for the pain pills! LOL. Now I am healing, and wanting this to be all behind me. LOL.

You are very sweet, kind and loving. I hope your family realizes how lucky they are to have you.
