Yes, a cereal box...REALLY!

The challenge this week over at One Stop Craft Challenge is to alter something.  Never one to let good junk go to waste if I can help it, I saved 2 Honey Combs cereal boxes from certain death in the trash can and covered them, blinged them, glued them, cut them...you name it, I did it.  I just bought my new 2011 calendar last night and found it such a pain to try to go through the old calendar searching for dates like birthdays and such that had to be transferred over while weeding through the countless don't forget notes calendars fill up with when you have three kids.  So my 'dates to remember' calendar was born.  I decorated each page for the month and included a generic calendar that I can jot down dates on without it being a Mon, Tues, etc organized type.  For the front page I printed the words 'Dates to Remember' out on vellum and layered it over 1" squares I cut from each of the calendar pages.  Thanks for looking....
