Calendar comes to a screeching halt!
Hiya everyone! Well, I set out with very good intentions of making my annual calendar for my kids surrogate grandparents. I laid out all of my supplies and made a big cup of hot chocolate and set out my snack (chocolate of course!) and then my printer refused to cooperate! First it would not print my pictures correctly and then it just refused to print! Grrrr!!!! I was able to print out the actual calendar and get it bound and then...nothing! I am going to have to run to Wal Mart and use their fancy-schmancy Kodak printer to finish printing the pictures! I explained my dilemma to surrogette Grandma in hopes that she might say, "Well, I understand completely! Let's just let this one slide!" No such luck!! I was in no uncertain terms told I had better get busy on that calendar! Guess I will be making that trip to Wal Mart! I did finish the cover and thought I would share that!
I found the cutest set of clear stamps at Joannes! They are just faces and the family names (mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, brother, sister etc). They even have a cat and dog! I snatched those right up (using my 40% coupon of course!) and used them to make this cover! I also used a little alphabet set to add the names. I chose colors that were person appropriate and then matted them all against SU brilliant blue card stock.
I will share more of the calendar as I get it finished! : )
