I need you to have some super imagination. I had been in the hospital with back issues and had great hopes and inspirations to craft but alas the best intentions are waylaid!!!! I chose AVIATION DAY which is August 19th. See, my beautiful paper - it is from DCWV Boy Stack with the blue and gold stripes. Up there going across the top is the airplane with the banner from Cricut Cartridge New Arrival and the word "welcome" is from Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge. It is to welcome my new grandson, Adam Michael who is due anytime now!!!!!!! 

Your next stop along the way of the calendar is Sandy. Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on September 14, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog.
