Calander 2010 for my Mam

Good Morning Everyone!

Well for the past 2 days I have been feeling rather ill, on Friday I rang NHS Direct & they suspect Food Poisoning!

I am feeling slightly better still feel a bit delicate, so I thought I would get a crack on with the Calander I was going to make for my Mam.

I bought the album back in June, with the intenion of doing a page every week or so, then I wouldn't have a mad rush at the last minute, however that never happened & last night whilst watching Strictly I made these

I LOVE Tilda but I'm unsure if Mam does - sometimes she says Im too Americanised - I laugh to myself if she only knew Tilda was from Sweeden!!

I went for Tilda anyhooo, as I didnt want to do Tilda or mixed in with anyother stamps.

I tried to print the calander from the PC but I was making them too big to fit onto the page & also I couldnt get the month to look right on them.

So I bought a pack of Calander tabs - 99p, bargain or what???

The pages inside were scalloped, however this looked like too hard a job to cover them so I turned them straight - I'm still worrying about covering the front & back pages any ideas welcome!!

I have circled all te holidays I could think of, Im also going to put my birthday on, as Mam often has trouble remembering that one, wonder why??

I av colored Tilda's in with Pro Markers.

Papers I have used are DCWV, K&Co, Forever Friends, Daisy & Dandelion.

I'm trying to only use all Magnolia Stamps too - like the butterflies.

Anyhow here's what I managed last night.

Off to try to do some more or maybe some cards!

See you all soon, PS let me know if there's anything I should change! X x

Fab idea, love it!

Have you thought of inking tne cover? Then you woudnt have to cover the scallops. You could then decorate as you would a card front.
