Vintage Flip Christmas Calendar

Since I'm still in the Christmas mood today...and that's probably because I was sick most of this weekend with a terrible cold..
my nose wouldn't stop running and I couldn't stop sneezing....
which meant..I didn't get to hold Macie this weekend..
I did talk her Mom into letting me hold just a bit...so it kind of sucked...
but I got some cute pictures of her...and of course I'll share a few with you
before I show you my latest paper project...

Yep, that's me in my pj's rocking Macie and her smiling back at me...
 
 
Macie is such a ham for the camera...5 weeks old and loves to have her picture taken...

The proud parents of Macie,
my daughter, Crystal and Stuart...
Okay, now onto my last Christmas themed project this year...

First of all I can't take any credit for this project...I was inspired by Simply KellyB
I started with a 8 X 10 frame from Dollar Tree...

I added vintage looking rose trim around the entire frame..
and I used the new paper line from October Afternoon...
Holiday Style...


For complete directions, you'll want to head over to Kelly's blog..
and she's got a link to the pictures for each day of the calendar...

I added a little embellishment to each page and the bell ornament
on the side is also from Dollar Tree...

I kept the background as neutral as possible so I can make a flip calendar for Valentine's Day....


I'm going to take some time off and will be back on Saturday for Sunday Blog Love.
Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season!

Linking to these parties...

This is too cute! I love that you kept i neutral so you could use for more than on event! I would have thought of that... after I was all done and needed one for another event!

I know how you feel, I was sick for Christmas too. I hope you are feeling better. I have to say, I just love this little flip book idea, so much better than an advent calendar, and my children can help me find pictures. Happy New Year.
