Baby It's Cold Outside from Sentiment Salon and January Birthday Calendar Page

I've got a great project to share with you today, or tonight! Our every talented and thoughtfully sweet Iris at Belles N' Whistles Design Team came up with this great birthday calendar! I am forever forgetting birthdays and this year I want to try and be better about them. So Happy Birthday to my adopted baby girl, Kelly! Try and stay out of trouble!

I love this template because you can use it for birthdays, anniversaries, those special days, paydays, you name it and you can do it. Since it's January, I thought I'd use The Christmas Door from Belles N' Whistles, and color it in winter colors rather than Christmas ones. I think this baby doll is just so stinkin cute going to deliver her package. I made the balls on the trees and the wreath into fruit, oranges but you can call them pomegranates if you chose! I added Stickles and some Prima Flowers with spacers and pearls in the corner. Oh, and some the the Christmas stamps from our Belles N' Whistles Christmas Collection are now on sale! That's always as great thing this time of the year.

And don't you just love this sweet sentiment? My good friend, Deb, started a blog called Sentiment Salon and asked me to be on her design team and I was so excited! I can't wait to bring you some gorgeous and fun cards with sentiments on them! They're digis and so much fun! I love the idea of printing something out and sizing it how I want. Go over and take a look at the fabulous sayings she's got going on over there!

This was a good start for me because I'm wanting to get into scrap booking and I thought using all of a 6 x 6 piece of paper was a huge leap for me! I thought the Eskimo Kisses background was perfect for my winter scene! I had a blast on this one and I can't wait to put together my February calendar page.

I'll be back over the weekend but I just needed to take a couple of days off this past week but I hope you enjoy what I came back with. Have a great weekend everyone!
