Another project completed!

I have finished Aimee's calendar and already one month has turned over!!
Aimee choose the paper and the photo for this one. I must add that I found it quite a challenge to do a beach theme on the dotty paper! I haven't really been successful either!

Here's a few close up of the embellishments I have added, the vine is a rub on.

I love stamps and seldom tackle a project without having at least one stamp close at hand! For this project I used four of them.

Thought I would add a memo pad to this calendar, for Aimee to jot down little memories on, and it was another excuse to have a play with my somewhat unused Zutter. If any of you are thinking of buying a Zutter I would say - Go for it, it is so surprisingly simple to use, even for someone as untrained as me!!

The little memo pad can be swung easily to the inside, apart from the coil you would not know it was even there! Here is the whole photo that hides under the cover.
Fingers crossed this will pass Aimee's inspection tomorrow!

Wow, Sonya, this calendar is stunning!!! Actually I am thinking of buying a zutter. Now when I see your beautiful projects I am sure I need to have it!
You really don`t need me to help me with yourcards, you do a brilliant job! But sure it would be great fun to do it together! :-)))

((Please don`t worry about me, I just need this medication because my back is quite damaged because of osteoarthritis and adhesions, so to ease the pain I get the drugs and I´m fine - nothing to worry about. :-)) ))

Sleep well and have sweet dreams while I go on admiring your gorgeous calendar! :-)))
Hugs, Renate

Sonya, this is amazing!!! I love how you added the memo pad. So cute. Is that photo printed onto the background paper or did you tape/glue it on? It looks like part of the design. Love it!

It's just beautiful and the memo pad is a great idea

Whoistracy...in answer to your question- nothing fancy going on Im afraid,the photo is attatched with photo glue and I have sprayed 'Crystal Clear-nuart' over the whole of the front cover, photo and all. This stuff puts a protective cover over the photo so it can be wiped with a damp cloth. A must for my messy girl!!
Cheers, and thank you everyone for your lovely comments!

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
