My Altered Date Book

Since I was getting appointments into next year I decided to purchase a  2016/2017 date book, I wasn't excited about the picture but I knew I would alter it. I used Sketch 10 at the Crooked Stamper's blog of course a house mouse image, every time I take it out of my purse it will make me smile.


The dies I used are Big Scalloped dies from Spell binders and the alpha stamps are from Hero Arts


Here is what I started with.


Close up of the super cute mousie 


Hero Arts alpha set stamped in Teal and punched out with the 1/2 inch circle punch.

I would like to enter this in:
House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge ~~ use plaid (alternate anything goes.)
The Crooked Stamper ~~ Sketch #10 took a small liberty with putting date book on two lines.



Thanks for stopping by today, drop in any time you are always welcome.

How clever! I, too, use a 2-year calendar. Right now I'm juggling between two of them. Nov appts in old book AND new book. Only 6 more weeks. (I need the old book for looking up old appts.) And you get to see that cute mousie for two years. Heck, change it out now and then!

And a two-line sentiment is no big deal - it totally follows the sketch. Thanks for playing!
