Thanksgiving Blog Hop: November 6-7 2010

Today is Saturday November 6, 2010 and is our Thanksgiving Blog Hop Two Day Event... if you just found us hop on over to AmyS @ http://digi-scrap.blogspot.com/ to start from the beginning.

You should of have arrived at my blog from Bugaloohttp://designsbysharon.blogspot.com/


Here is my creation. I decided to make a calendar using the Design Calendar Cartridge.

I purchase this cartridge since last year and never used it, so that's the reason I follow the directions from the handbook, it was easy...
The cardstock is from Bazzill Basics Colors. The actual frame is cut at 8 3/4 x 9" and the insides calendar frame is cut at 5" and the numbers @ 1"..


I skip on the number 17 because that's my birthday and decided to put a flower(was looking for a sunflower) and also 23 because that's my husband and put a heart on it. I layer on top of the #25 Thanksgiving saying on it. All the numbers I put crystal effect and stickles and the flower is from K&Company, heart is just a sticky foam from Valentines, I colored it in with a Bic Sharpie Red.


The side images were cut @ 2" and is the October pumpkin and November pilgrim hat. I use stickles to color in the pumpkin: orange and the hat black and gold. I love the glittery paper my non-secret pal Michelle send me. Is a glittery orange and use it to cut my title.



Here is another look at My November Calendar on my buffet table... Thanks so much for stopping by today and don't forget tomorrow for our second project. I hope you enjoy the blog hop...now head over to Mandy @http://mandys-scrap.blogspot.com...
I will post my blog candy on tomorrow post, so dont forget to sign up if you would like to follow me and also leave a comment on both post. I will pick the winner on Friday November 12.

November seems to be a busy birthday month. Mine is tomorrow. You made a cute calendar. I hope you start getting more use out of your calendar cart.

Laura said...

I have this cart too and I really like it & use it quite a bit. It is a challenge gluing all of the numbers down tho' Yours looks great. Much neater than mine and you staged your photos so beautifully.
