Vintage French Inspired Calendar

Every year, as summer comes to a close, I buy a new weekly planner-type calendar to help keep me organized in the new school year. Usually I just pick one up at Barnes & Noble, and leave it at that. This year, I couldn't find one with a cover that I loved -- or at least, not one that I loved enough to look at day after day for the next year. So, I decided to pretty it up a bit. I felt comfortable using some of my favorite supplies because this calendar has a see-through plastic cover page. I'm hoping that it will protect my cover from too much wear and tear. I started with my (current) favorite scrapbooking paper -- Madeline, from Brenda Walton -- and then added vintage laces and pages from an antique French book. I stamped the dress onto one of the book pages. I also stamped "2010" onto a tag and glued that to the front cover to hide where it says "weekly planner" on the front. Anyway, I know the finished product is a tad fancy for a calendar, but it makes me a lot more excited about getting organized!
