I Did It! (Calendar Pages FINISHED!)

At least I accomplished THAT much. 7 layouts in one day in between/after church and the Denver Chalk Art Festival.  (They may not be my best work, but they are by far my fastest work!)
But I also had an epic FAIL.  I love the Lasting Memories challenge - there's always a "challenge" and a layout.This week's challenge was Fancy Folds. I thought I could do it.  I even have the Fancy Folds book.  But I am so inept sometimes.  I tried making some fancy folded leaves. Epci. Fail.  So...I just folded down a corner of my paper. That way I could participate in the challenge and direct you, my readers, over to all of the awesome creations on the challenge site :)

See that little fold  up in the corner? :)

Here's some more layouts:

The rest of the pages are here, on my facebook page.

Now that I'm done, the HH and I can happily take off for our little romantic get-away with no pressing projects awaiting me when I get home :) 

Thanks for stopping by!

Let The Calendar Pages Begin...

The goal?
12 scrap book pages in 3 days, in between a number of other activities.
I told my sister I would make another calendar for her in 2012. Hey, who says a 12 month calendar has to begin with January?  Mine's gonna begin with June. Which means it needs to be mailed withing the next couple of days!(In my defense, a month ago I ordered her a digital version from Sam's Club thinking I would wait until next year to create one.  After receiving the Sam's one, I am more certain than ever that nothing compares to a REAL scrapbook page :)  I'll send her both...I'm sure she can find a use for the second one.)
Let the calendar pages begin... The challenge at Heart 2 Heart this week is to incorporate a photo into your project. Ought to be easy enough...

A friend recently gifted me with the Close To My Heart Dotty For You paper pack which is what I used for this page. I also used some old CTMH stamps. It was a quick and easy layout. Let's hope the other 11 are equally easy and quick :)

Thanks for stopping by!
