September Calendar Challenge


Happy September everyone!  Today was my first day back at school (officially), and I had to endure all the meetings and things they make you do on staff days.  If you are a teacher, you will know what I'm talking about!  As I was in the meetings, I was thinking about what I wanted to do for my calendar, since I forgot to do it earlier in the week.  Some of the girls get together for a monthly calendar challenge...you'll see links to their blogs at the end of this post.  I haven't participated since June, so I was determined to get one done this month!  I decided on this little guy from Paper Makeup Stamps called Schoolie Ed.  (I actually wanted to use Ms. Nancy the Teaching Fairy, but she just didn't fit on the top of the calendar!)
The calendars I'm using are from Taylored Expressions.  They print out as a 6x6 calendar.  I trimmed it down a bit to mount it on a 6x6 piece of garden green cardstock so the back is finished off and you don't see the ink bleeding through.  The sentiment is from the Apples to Apples set, also from Paper Makeup Stamps.  I added red corner pieces in real red to give it more color.  Very simply (and quickly) done, but too cute!  I think this is going to school with me this year!  Here's a closeup.
So here are the links to the other girls that are participating!  Some wonderful calendars to view!



Thanks for stopping by today and make sure you stop by my other post for the My Time Made Easy release day post!
