calendar pages day two

Good morning! Here we are at day two of the calendar pages. I must say that one looks like a two year old did it and the other is much better (except the photo...sorry about that!).

Anyway, I finally got the pages out in the mail today. I really hope they get there quickly (sent priority but this time of year...who knows!) so the entire calendar can be finished.

Once again I just used some patterned paper that I have in the house for both of these. The October page has paper from SU! and the other is well...I don't recall...sorry. Again, the sentiments are from Sweet N Sassy Stamps and the letters/numbers for the dates are from PTI.

I am absolutely thrilled to announce that I now have all my crafting done for the Sweet N Sassy Stamp Blog Hop and Release Party (see sidebar for details)! I received my final set today along with the paper I was wanting to use with it and bam...I'm done! Todd likes them all so that is saying something...lol!

I made a card with a Tilda image last night too that I like but don't love so I'm not sure I'll show it to you but the image itself is cute. Have you used them yet? I'd love to see some examples if you have. If not, you should go see my friend, Kristine's, blog...she does an absolutely AMAZING job with them! I think she is the Magnolia whisperer...LOL!

I have received over the last few months several awards from my wonderful blogger friends. I don't often post them as I don't want anyone to think that I am boasting (as I really have nothing to boast about) about receiving an award. Anyway, Ceal nominated me for an award that is new and I haven't seen plus you get to learn something new about me from it so here it is. Here is how this one works...ready?

1. Link to the blog of the person who gave you this award. You will find Ceal's blog HERE.

2. Name 5 things you are addicted to...
a. My desire to know Jesus more deeply.
b. My husband and boys.
c. Crafting.
d. Blogs and blogging.
e. Computers.
f. Ghiradelli Chocolate
g. Oh, wait...it was five, huh? I'm a little OCD sometimes! LOL!

3. Pass it on to 5 other bloggers that inspire you. Here is where it gets sticky for me. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings and honestly, so many people inspire me so I'm just randomly listing 5 blogs...k?
a. Kristine
b. Sarah
c. Korin
d. Melissa
e. Kerry

So, there you have it. I hope you are all having a wonderful day! See you tomorrow everyone! Grouphug

Boast away, girlfriend! Cute pages, and I {heart} Kristine's blog! Did you see that skiing one she did yesterday? Amazing!

I feel the same way about awards, but they ARE fun and a way to point out some of your fave blogs that possibly others haven't had the pleasure of visiting yet, so consider it that you're doing your readers a favor ;)
Anyway, THANK YOU so much for passing this award on to me. You're very sweet.
