My Decorated Calendar...

Hello lovelies.

I would like to show you a calendar that I have decorated.

I do this every year as a Christmas gift for my lovely husband. It take's some time to do, but I think the end result is well worth it. I usually choose a different theme each year, but since we got Peggy I think it's just perfect to use her photo's. 

It is a nice way of scrapbooking  her life and is a lovely keep sake too. I think this album also shows just how much the three of us love each other! We have lot's of fun and so much happiness in our house with our golden girl!

The calendar is a Graphic 45 Easel calendar. I have used various papers that I already had in my stash. I wanted to use a theme of button's and die cuts too, so you will see these on each page. Some of the embellishment's are made by East of India. The heart and rose on the October page I made using Ultra Thick Embossing Enamels and Crystals, with my melt pot and moulds.

August is very pink, as that is my birthday month lol. Well pink is my favourite colour after all!

I hope you enjoy looking through the 12 months of a lovely year with Peggy!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and see my calendar.

I love seeing Darren's face when he opens his gift and looks through each month. It makes every minute of making this worth while.

Have fun and happy crafting,
lots of love
