Another Handmade Calendar

This is my second calendar this year, the other one is HERE. I am going to send this calendar to India for my Papa. I often made some decorations for his office. He always appreciated them, never let me think that they are ameature or not worthy to be put in the office of an esteemed surgeon.

I have used patterned papers from Pink Paislee ( hope chest), Kaisercraft, Prima ( Zephyr), MME, Webster's pages ( western romance) and First Edition etc to make this calendar. I have used clay flowers, quilled flowers and fabric flowers which I made HERE.

                                           I especially love the stick pin that I used with clay roses. I am in love with beads these days. I don't have proper hat pins ( 3") so I had to make do with the general purpose head pins to make this one.
