12 months of October Afternoon!!!

I fell absolutely in love with this kit from www.Scrapbookobsessions.com! I LOVEEEE this OCTOBER AFTERNOON PAPER! IT is adorably cuttteee! The little animals are so precious. YOU can do SO MUCH with it. IT has also got fruit and flowers and fall things You can switch sides and make it spring summery.. It is so versatile. I MADE AN ENTIRE CALENDAR WITH IT!!!! CHECK IT OUT!

I got these pictures just in time... now its raining... :blink:

John had cut out these blocks of wood for me when I was doing all these mini albums at Christmas one
year. I thought THIS would be PERFECT to do a little calendar with. :blink:.
I ran out of the twine when I was tying them together though, so it took me a little longer to get this project made.
because I had to order some more lol but FINALLLYYY here it is: I added extra photos of it hanging
in my foyer and laying outside so you might can see it. It is hard to photograph....

I used Making Memories edge distresser on the October Afternoon Papers Inked the edges with
colorbox Inks. Favorite Findings buttons The Prima flower from the kit I used Glimmer mist
Iridescent Gold then highlighted with the colorbox inks on the Jeni Bowlin Calendar.
I cut out the little Pig to peek out of the flower,

I used Vintage pink Glimmer mist Queen and company felt border, Making memories paper clip
creative imaginations twill, Making memories edge distresser colorbox fluid ink chalks I cut the sheep out and
pop dotted them onto the page.

March I took Green heart bling and put them together to make clover. I used some
old stickers cutting them out used the word "lucky" sentiment across the top.
I used one of the strings in the cord of rope to make the stem of my shamrock clover and used
a green marker on it.
I added Happy St Patricks Day ribbon across the bottom since that is one of the things March is
Known for.
I also used Iridescent Gold glimmer mist on this page to represent the pot of Gold your supposed to get if you
catch that leprechaun.

I used vintage pink Glimmer mist I also used Crystal stickles on all of the polka dots to represent Rain drops. also lightly
on the flower.

I cut that little duck out (about 4 times since my neighbor kept making me decapitate the chicken... since he was using his skill saw and scaring me to pieces)

I distressed the paper with the glimmer mist ruffed the edges with the edge distressed inked it added the rain drops, used the MME Buttons that were an add on this month* Inked the Jeni Bowlin calendar And added the little duck.

I used The Threading water punch on this one to make a little border in the center. Inked the edges of it. hand cut those little flowers
I cut down the little alphas that were in our kit this month and over lapped them to make them whimsical.
I used the Iridescent gold glimmer mist. wrinkled up my calendar for a shabby chic look. inked the edges and distress edged it with the MM edger. I pop dotted some of the flowers. (I meant to put bling on the centers of the flowers and just realized I missed that sorry)

June I used a piece of burlap that i pulled loosely i inked my OA paper heavily for contrast I put some ribbon through
the Jenni Bowlin button. used Creme De Chocolate Glimmer mist VERY LIGHTLY then rubbed it with my finger off the calendar to the edges.
then inked the edges of the calendar with my colorbox fluid ink chalks. I cut out the cow and pop dotted him on there



Celebrate the 4th of July with the loud crowing rooster... I used Queen and company stars and accented it with Crystal Stickles , Stars and stripes ribbon held with staples, iridescent gold Glimmer mist on the calendar and inked the edges with colorbox fluid ink chalks.

August: Suede Glimmer mist, Iridescent Gold glimmer mist offray ribbons, Making memories tiny alphas, October afternoon alphas
I cut the sheep and the apple out of the papers and used the October Afternoon stickers.

September, Latte Glimmer mist, burlap from my stash, I cut out the fruit from the October afternoon Patterned Paper.
