Are you ready for the new year??

I carry a little pocket calendar to keep track of my days as I sometimes forget I have something planned for a certain day when asked to do something. Since 2010 is just around the corner I purchased a new 2010/2011 pocket calendar for $1 at a Dollar-type store and had to recover it!

I really like our Cha Cha SWIC paper. The colors are bright and cheery. I also used a small scrap from the Cha Cha cardstock pack to stamp the text but I did stamp on the smooth side of the cardstock. You get a much nicer image when you do that. The text is from the Always Remember set which I think is great for the website password books I sometimes make or even scrapbook pages!

For a little more fun I punched out 3 flowers and edged them with the Noir PH ink that I also stamped with (plus swiped around the larger paper pieces). We carry 2 of the punches, Extra Jumbo and Super Jumbo, but the small one is by EK Success, I think. There are 2 more punched flowers to the upper left of the pattern paper in the top photo but since I didn't get black ink around the edges they are hard to see. So, now I'm ready for next year, how about you??
