T is for Trish & the Star of the Show is K

I have a few things to post this week. I've been remaking some of my fav (recent) projects with different papers and designs. (I hope you don't get sick of them, but sometimes when you find a fun thing to make your creative muse is AWOL you make it over and over... especially when they are good for gifts!) I will share them this week... Here's the first: a remake of my little chipboard calendar with the BIA machine. The possibilities are endless with these little calendars... This one goes from May 2008 - May 2009.

I was privileged to be able to hang out for a couple of days over the past couple of weeks with my friend, Trish's daughter, K. We were making a fun little project for T for M's Day. T and her dh, T, are going to Canada tomorrow for a work thing for dh T without the munchkins.... K and I thought it would be fun to put something in T's suitcase... I am pretty sure K put it in the suitcase or gave it to her mom early yesterday... meaning: It's been given, T is in Canada (or an airport along the way) and I can post safely now! YAY!

K & I had a BLAST hanging out together to create this calendar. I dreamed up the design, K picked out the papers and did the actual assembling of the calendar. We did our own little photo shoot the first evening in the freezing cold... poor K was such a good sport!

Here's some photos of K's creative adventure. For an 11 yr old, she's pretty good with the Fiskars Fingertip Craft Knife and mastered the ATG pretty quickly.

Awesome project! Loved the ribbon tied at the top like that! And you probably made that girl's day! I loved when I got a chance to hang out with my mom's friends like this! And then to make something SO fun.... so cool for her! We mother in many ways!

Shelley - yes, you're right! Simple Pleasures, thank you! And yes, I did get all the months under the brads. Those are large brads, too, btw.
