  1. Oh, Billie, this is another fun, cute as a button calendar page. I love it with the different levels for the scene. They really add depth. The Softly Falling EF is perfect for this, as well as the soft colors. Today’s “b-ism” is perfect for new years. Here’s wishing you the best year ever in 2017! I can’t wait to see what your creativity brings us next year. I hope your trip home was uneventful. There’s nothing like your own bed and pillow. Sweet dreams!

    • Thanks HJ for your sweet comments and your encouraging words almost everyday this year…what a ray of sunshine you are! Our travels were uneventful which is always nice…and yes my bed did feel extra good!…B!

    • Hey Cyndi…the calendar is from It comes preprinted on letterpress paper. This type paper takes stamping and ink so well. The bonus is the lucite container it arrives in also makes a holder for the calendar…just switch the page each month. I should work for Paper Source!…B!
