2013 Calendar - SEPTEMBER

Hi everyone! I'm back with another calendar page. A couple more to go and I'll be done!!! Since my calendar pages are thicker this time around the base doesn't hold them all at once (the weight makes the base fall over, LOL) so I'm thinking to get a pretty pre-printed cardboard box to put the base and calendar pages in and wrap them in tissue paper. If I only put a few calendar pages on the base at one time the box can then be used to store the other calendar pages. I've also dreamed up a few ideas for future calendars and have my husband working on designing some wooden calendar bases for me.

For this month's calendar page I went with a fall theme. The image used on the calendar page is the SCARECROW coloring page by Elizabeth Dulemba.

My calendar page is Dark Brown layered with White Cardstock then Fall Festival Mini Dots patterned paper and Fall Stripe patterned paper finished using the Grass Edge Punch.  The scarecrow was printed on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers.  I finished the page with a couple orange rhinestones.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!

Perfect! I'd love looking at this for an entire month. So cute!
Can't wait to see the rest of the year now - and also the bases your husband is designing!
