I will be using the Perpetual Calendar each month. The Perpetual Occasions calendar is the perfect solution for keeping track of birthdays, anniversaries, and other important occasions!! The calendar is printed on sturdy 100 lb. white cardstock with blank inserts separating each month. The blank inserts can be decorated any way you choose. It can be used year after year and it makes a wonderful gift. You can see all the Fabulous calendar products HERE
For my August page I chose to use the Hanging out - At the Beach! I just Love all the Fun Beachy images, they are So Perfect for my Fun Summery August Page!.. 8-) Well, I did some Paper piecing and colored up the rest of my Beachy scene with my Trusty Copics. I cut my Palm tree out with the help of the TE Palm Tree Die and fussy cut out my Surf board and popped them both up with a bit of foam tape. My fluffy clouds were created with a template I made with the TE Cloud Border Die, Tumbled Glass Distress ink and my small stenciling brush. My mats and BG layers Sand and waves were created with dp's from, Echo Park's 6x6 Paradise Beach collection and the TE Wave Border Die. And to finish it all up I stamped my sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa, added more shading with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and stamped the Sweet little hibiscus flower here and there with Wild Honey Distress ink for a Fun decorative touch...8-)
