Hope everyone made it through Monday unscathed. It was a typical one where I work. I work for a company that does service work, and everything always tear up on the weekends. And of course, I was one of the weekend victims. My water heater had to be replaced this morning. But still have a leak because of the pressure on the line or something, so till the plumbers can come back tomorrow, we have had to turn it off. I am not a happy camper.
Pat's challenge this past Saturday was to do a layout and at least one stamp on it somewhere. I am making my mother for Christmas a month by month reminder book. The months were already in there and the pockets made. I will recover the cover, and do each month as I have this one. My mother is getting forgetful, so I hope this will help her on this hard journey she is facing. The people that have birthdays in that certain month, I am putting their pictures on the page that faces it. I put some homemade cards in the pocket, and will get some postage stamps later and put in it. On the left hand layout are the photos and I use stamps for two sentiments, and also the October stamp on the tab. Over on the date page, I wrote their names on the right date, and tried to use balloons and other things to symbolize what the occasion is. On October 31st, I used a stamp to recognize Halloween. Thanks Pat for challenging me to get started on this Christmas present. When I get the whole book completed I will show it too.
