Altered calendar

I saw the little two year planners offered from Michael's for just one dollar and immediately thought of my sister-in-law. She dutifully keeps track of everything and I know she would love this. I knew I could not alter it with too many 3-D effects and still have it fit into the plastic protective cover. So, I chose to use my littlest roses. I took several apart to create matching buds. I used the little Tilda stamp holding eggs but replaced the eggs with roses as my sil also loves roses. I then added one of my favorite verses to the front. I think this verse is also very accurate for a day planner! And of course, there just has to be a little bling so added stickles here and there. My sil also keeps a daily journal so am going to alter one to go with this if I can.

here it is with the plastic cover.
Challenges I am entering this in are:

Fussy and Fancy-sketch

Creative Stamps-favorite stamps....I do love my Mags!

Fairy Fun Fridays-make your own flowers

Aly's Sunday- music

Magnolia Down Under-make your own embellishments

Catch the Bug- anything goes

Thank you for stopping by and God bless you!
