Calendar for 2009...

I hope everyone had great Holidays and that 2009 is wonderful for you.

Well... this Holiday Season was a bit hard for me due to losing my daddy in September. I lost my mom 8 years ago and still miss her terribly. When daddy died, the sadness was overwhelming that both were gone. When I am sad, I become very quiet and so I have not posted for awhile or chatted on any boards much. With the help of God, family and friends I have gotten through this and hope to be scrappin' my heart out soon.

I did design and create a CD calendar for my daughter for a gift. It was fun doing this and I am happy that it turned out so well. I was going to do the entire calendar on my Cricut, but it broke (got a replacement last week). The month of May was done using the Cricut and the rest were designed by me using my Pazzles. Below are pictures of the calendar.

Here are pictures of how the CD calendar goes together. You take the top and bottom of the CD case apart, flip the top over and put back together. This allows the CD case to stand on it's own. My little Daisy (dog) just has to be a part of everything I do so she ended up in the picture too.

And here is a closeup of the one I found the hardest to design and yet turned out to be my favorite.
