October Calendar

This is the first full week of October, so I decided finally to use my October Afternoon calendar stamps. I have had these stamps since before the summer, but regretfully have not used them. These are amazing. I do own another calendar stamp set, but this one far outshines any other. I tried all of them out last night and have decided this is the one I will use. So, each month, I will share my desk calendar. To hold the calendar, it is placed in a clear CD jewel case by Papertrey Ink or other supplier you can find.

So, what do I plan to do with this calendar that I can only use for a month? I asked the same question. I've decided that I will design a scrapbook page with the calendar as a focal point and a picture from the month! It's a great way to use something already created and remember the month!

I can't wait to make them for the rest of the year!
