I used Scrapbook Customs Canada Sightseeing Patterned Paper with Bazzill Blush Red Dark & White Prismatic cardstocks.
To embellish the 8 x 8 layout, I used CTMH's Mini Stapler, Stampin' Up Ribbon, BoBunny & Basic Grey Buttons and embroidery floss from my stash.
I used CTMH's Sweet & Lovely (comes with Artbooking Cricut Cartridge) stamp set with CTMH Black ink for the journal tag.
For the Album Label, I used CTMH's Atomic Caps (Digby - discontinued), Zoology (dotted line), Scroll Album Workshop (family - discontinue) and Family is Forever - September Stamp of the Month 2014 (heart - discontinued) with CTMH Black ink.
Prior to my pregnancy with TJ, every year in February I would begin to make calendars for certain family members for Christmas. For instance, I highlighted our favourite moments of 2010 for their 2011 Calendar.
Most of the family members that received one of these calendars live far away from us and it was a way of them not missing moment's in our lives; especially the children's milestones.
Since my bed rested pregnancy with TJ, I have not been able to get back to my calendars because it's been one chaotic event after another, but I wanted to do something for these special people in our lives.
My brilliant best friend, Shanna, said why don't you just make up random 8 x 8 layouts for them like you are doing for your grandparents. I loved the idea.
So, here is the first layout that I made for Trevor's grandparents. They leave soon for the winter to warmer climate, so we gave them their Christmas gift early.
