It's All About the Green Blog Hop- Day 2- CTMH's Event Calendar

Welcome to the "It's All About the Green" Blog hop!!!!  Thanks for joining us for DAY TWO!  If you missed Day One---- CLICK HERE--- to check it out :)

I am happy to be a part of this wonderful group and hope you are enjoying this TWO DAY hop!!!!! 

Today I'd like to share with you part of my Event Calendar.  I just love this little calendar that CTMH has for us!  It is perfect to record all those important dates to remember like Birthdays and Anniversaries.  I keep mine in my office, next to my regular calendar.  My intent is to send out birthday cards to everyone whose name is on that little calendar, but I have not been very good at it lately :(

The March page features CTMH's Friendship (the February Stamp of the Month) and a shamrock cut from "A Child's Year" Cricut Cartridge.
First, I created the background pattern using two of the stamps from the Friendship set.  I then sanded the image a bit to tone down the brightness of the color and sponged the edges.  I added the cute little shamrock and sponged the edges of it to give it a little bit of dimension. 

This is the full Event Calendar page.  I used the Holiday Hoopla stamp set to stamp the shamrock in first and second generation randomly on the page.  

All CTMH unless noted
D1453 Friendship
D1382 Holiday Hoopla
White Daisy, Olive Carstock
Sweetleaf, Olive ink
Cricut- A Child's Year
