Year Round Calendar Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to our Year Round Calendar blog hop. As you can see, I am August. You should have arrived here from July's, I mean Sarah's blog. You'll definitely want to start at the beginning at Patti's blog to see each month in order. If you should get lost along the way, go to the CDS Blog for the order of the hop. When Lori released this digital set last month, I thought it would make a perfect blog hop, showing off all the wonderful things you can do with this set. After all, Christmas is coming and what a wonderful gift set it would make!!! I created a card with mine, printing it off twice so I could color in, cut out, and pop up the watermelons. I plan on creating cards like this for each month and give it as a gift set. The recipient would be able to highlight the day of celebration be it a birthday or anniversary, or even a let's do lunch on that particular day. The options are endless. Now be sure to hop and leave comments on all the DT's blogs because we are giving away not one but two sets of the Year Round Calendar!! You will also need to leave a comment on the CDS blog when you're done hopping. Now off to see September at Karen's blog.
