January Calendar: Showhaven and Artbooking Cricut Cartridge

As I have posted before, I love, love, love calendars!  What better way to remember the little details of the past than by flipping through an old calendar/date book.  The big events in life are easy to remember ... weddings ... births ... holidays ... putting a tiny ding in Hubby's truck.  But what about the day-to-day life we live? 

Do you remember  ...  the day you met your future in-laws for the first time?  May 29, 2004 ...  the day you applied for the job you love ... March 15, 2009 ... the day Hubby signed up for his first RZR race ... October 3, 2014 ... the day your puppies were born ... well, I confess I don't have that date, but my mother-in-law does on her calendar!

See?  There is so much life between the "scrapbook worthy" events in our lives that lead to great stories that may not make it in to your scrapbook.  That's where a monthly calendar layout comes in! 

Here's my plan ... each month I'll just place the calendar in my Designed Decor Black Shadow Box, jot down a few non-scrapbooky (new word!) events and select a photo from that month.  Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!
