What happened to those beautiful autumn days? Brrrr.... snow, snow, go away
Ok, enough complaining - lol
Hopefully it is warmer where you are :-) I will send warm wishes your way!
I have been having a lot of trouble lately finding time to craft. Do you ever have that problem? This is the worst it has been, between work, kids, homework, volunteer work, and life in general, there isn't much time for me :-(
But it hasn't been all boo-hoo (lol)... This is a calendar for October (yeah, I know, it is the end of October, but better late than never, right?!?!)
I used up some of my left over alphabet stack letters - c'mon, fess up, you have some too don't you? And I created a simple 3 x 3 grid with scrapbook paper and spelled out the word "Spooky" - yeah, perfect word for October, isn't it? I think the best part about the Halloween theme is that I don't have to worry about making everything straight and picture perfect... I may have gone a little overboard, you'll have to let me know, because everything is a little off center.
I quickly created the calendar on my word processor and added it to the other side of the card. I don't know what I was thinking, but I didn't take a picture of how I set it up. This is not a traditional card and there is a triangle created that has "spooky" on one side and the calendar on the other. Unfortunately, I gave this away (yes, at the beginning of October - lol)...
Hope you are having fun!
Quick Update - Check out this awesome tool that let's you create your own 2012 owl calendar!!! Many artists contributed their personal owl artwork and you get to decide which one you want for each month of the year. After you pick the artwork for each month, it will generate a PDF file for you that you can print! You have to check it out!!! Incredible!!! Thank you to Ann (All Things Paper) for the heads up and to Shivani for this wonderful calendar!
