December calendar page

Christmas last year was the best way to add photos to December's page seeing as we haven't got there this year yet. Lol. It is a tradition now in our house to have a photo of the girls in front of the tree. We missed a few of the early years but got better once the girls went to school it seems.
Embellies are Anita's dimension stickers (free with Creativity some time ago and I have finally managed to use them woohoo), 7 Gypsies sticker, Colorbok stickers, B G button and alphabet and Papermania s/a pearls .

November calendar page

Both girls feature on the November LO. Taken at the end of half term holidays when we visited the Brooklands Museum.
Embellies are Prima flowers and s/a pearl, K & Co felt ladybird. Crate Paper Kaitlin heart, B G button and Chatterbox alphabet.

October calendar page

Halloween and this year the girls decided to take
part once more. DD1 had a Horror Ball at her school and then on the 31st went out with a couple of friends trick or treating. DD2 is more timid about the evening andhad to be somewhat pushed into collecting her sister and trick or treating on the way home. DD1 managed to return with a bucket ful of sweets and DD2 somewhat less but by the time DD1 had passed over the sweets she didn't like, DD2 had as many as DD1.

Embellies are Chatterbox alphabet, 7 Gypsies stickers, Colorbok stickers, Prima silk flower, B G buttons, a little quilted handbag (tick or treat bag), Papermania s/a gems and punched leaves.

September calendar page

September sees the girls back at school. DD1 has learnt to be a little ..... erm free -er with the wearing of her uniform. Who am I kidding she is very free with it. !!! How short is that tie!?!?
DD2 is still a good girl with uniform as it should be worn (except in this photo lol) but she is still only in junior school. Next year will be a different story with her I am sure.

I love this paper from the Que Sera Sera range of K & Co. Embellies are Prima flowers, BG button and alphabet, Papermania pearls, K & Co stickers and a couple of other flower stickers.

OMG I'm back

Where have I been? I have been crafting honest, but life has also been heaily in the way most of the time for me to get here. Anyway I was meant to be putting more of my USA holiday 1989 LO photos on here and I haven't got round to it ...... so far. I will do one day. but for now here is a calendar I've made for my outlaws for Christmas.
I set the members challenge on the Charmed Forum this time.
The first is to make a desk calendar. Can be any size (depending on your desk), with or without photos if a larger one and I would like you to add the following: Punched or die cut shapes, ie flowers, tags, frames ...... Blingy things ie dew drops, glitter, s/a pearls, gems ....... Sewing ..... or doodling
The second is to make a crafty Christmas present for somebody. This could be anything, like covering and decorating a notebook to personalise it, making a post it notes decorated holder thingy (technical term there ), make an address book, make a shopping list holder for a pad (to go on the fridge maybe), decorate a phone note pad holder, make and decorate a photo frame or ........ anything else you can think of. Use whatever form of embellishments are suitable for your chosen gift idea but include some ribbon, and chipboard somewhere and somehow.
Here is the front cover of my desk calendar.
All the papers are K & co. Flowers are die cut Wild Raspberry from K & Co and the felt embellies are Fancy Pants.
