During the last week my neighbor came over with her little ones and was working on THREE Days to remember calendar for her family as Christmas gifts.

That got me going on Rick’s calendar again. Since I only have one week left, my next few Scrapbook Sunday pages will turn out rather simple.


I don’t think Rick will mind though. He will be glad to have some pictures of us to look at while in Qatar. Plus he will love that I put everyone’s birthday on the calendar pages. I don’t know how it is in your family, but here, if I don’t think of birthdays, our relatives don’t get cards and gifts. LOL

I made this page to be later paired with a page I had made earlier.

The page base is a 6″ x 6″ piece of textured Blue Bayou cardstock. The photo was cut down to 4″ x 5″ and layered on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Basic Black cardstock.

The designer paper is from the retired Holiday Harmony Designer paper pack from the Winter mini catalog. I added a double photo corner on the top right. The bigger corner is in basic black, the smaller one punched out of Designer paper. I topped them off with five Antique Brass brads.

I added paper piercing and a brad border to complement the matching page and stamped the dotted border from All in a Row on the top left horizontally and vertically of the picture.

The A from the Wild West Alpha was stamped in Soft Sky ink on a 1 1/4″ Soft Sky cardstock circle. It was sponged and layered first on a black 1 3/8″ circle and then on a sponged Blue Bayou scalloped circle punchout.

I stamped Austin over the A in Black Stazon with my Simple Serif Alpha.

  1. This page is great. I am thinking about changing the format of my pages because I find 12X12 are hard to work on, but I also find 6X6 is a bit small… since we don’t have 8 1/2 X 11 anymore… I’m not sure want I’m going to do.
