A quick shuffle through my keepsake drawer yielded some old pocket calendars. A grid design seemed a logical choice and fit my linear personality :) My little used 2x2 square punch got a workout. Then I spent a good amount of time searching for this doily like cut in my Cricut cartridge stash. Finally found it in the Straight from the Nest cartridge! It seemed to coordinate well with the pattern in one of the papers from Echo Park. The little camera is on the Going Places cartridge.
Placing the inner square on an angle gave it an element of surprise, it seemed so boring all straight and narrow :)
Tried to use a variety of photos from when they were babies to now to represent the passage of time.
See the little calendars
Yummy Thickers :)
Used photos from my leftovers, the ones I printed and didn't use or extras of ones I already scrapped. A great way to use up all those extra photos, a tip I learned from Stacey Julian.

I'm totally jealous of all the gals on their way to Chicago for CHA :} It's always been my dream to walk the floors and peruse all the new goodies and meet all my scrapping idols. I know...I'm a goober or stalker as my kids would say! Plus I only live 2 1/2 hours from Chicago!
Off to try to do some scrapping. We have yet another day of 90 degree weather in store and I'm sure the kids will be begging to go to the lake. How can I resist ?!
