Calendars 2013

Here are the family calendars for 2013. I made a re-usable background so every year we can just replace the calendar bit with a new one.
I stamped the square pieces of cardstock with various GinaK Designs stamps (the "To Do" and "notes" are from the "Getting Organised" set).
I found these really cool large wooden clothes pegs which I dressed up with some paper scraps. I added felt to the tips to protect any photos or notes they clamp. They are not glued or fixed to the background at all so can be moved around.

The background (incl. the note squares) are laminated so it can be written on with white board marker.
Here's what some of the other backgrounds look like:

Let's play along! Entering into: (12 DEC)
