happy birthday...

Happy Monday!

Today is the E.A.D Designs Blog Hop!!
(it officially starts at 10 am EST)

You should have hopped here from Jenn's blog: 



A Big E.A.D Designs welcome to our December Guest DT: 


Today's theme is Calendar & Storage Ideas!

I came up with a Birthday Calendar...

Here's the cover...each page is 2.5 x 3.5..I used the one of my all time favorite stickerz sets, Fly away with me!


I stitched the the scenery and paper pieced the balloon and clouds...all the paper is Cosmo Cricket Togetherness.  I used my crop-o-dile and punched holes in the corner and bound the pages together with an upcycled chain from a clothing purchase:)

This is what the pages look like...January - December...I labeled the pages with Making Memories alpha stickers.


I'm super bad with birthday's....my memory is really horrid...this will come in handy when I find out when peeps' birthday's are..

Don't forget about the E.A.D Designs December Steal:


Next up is the fabbie Joanna at


Hey, I'm super behind on my Google Reader...hope to catch up early this week!

Fantastic idea! I have some of these, but don't use them! I think because of the size. The one you featured here looks so cute and manageable!
