Dates to Remember

Hello my blogging friends. I hope this post finds you all well and happy!
Sorry I didn't post yesterday I have been working on a Dates to Remember Book. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do with a chipboard book my BFF (Hi Carey) gave me, that I had put in my stash. It has a great spiral binding on it perfect for tying ribbon pieces on the left hand side. It has 14 pages so I thought a Monthly Dates to Remember Book would work out great for this amount of pages. I am not done with it yet , but I will show you what I have so far.
This is the cover, see the big spiral binding it has on it. That is so going to look good I can't wait.
Each months page as an envelope for putting names with birthdays, or anniversaries... you get what I mean. I think I will even put a little sheet of paper in the envelope so I can keep a list going of special dates so I do not forget who to send a card to.
This is the inside cover page see the envelope! I embossed each one differently and put a strip of corresponding DSP on it for the flap so my list does not fall out. This is Jan. and Feb;s pages.

March and April is next.


Well that's it for me today. I have to hurry and make two masculine cards. My BIL is turning 50 and we are having a surprise dinner party for him (I hope he doesn't read my blog YIKES). Then my mom is going to a birthday party tomorrow night and asked for a musical card for her friend???? What am I to do? I'll take some pictures when I get them done.
Have a great evening. Don't for get to leave me a comment for some Blog Candy. I'm still taking names and will pick a winner tomorrow. Remember to leave me your e-mail address so I can contact you. Now go create something fun.
