October 2016 calendar page

Saturday October 1, 2016

This is the October page I made. As I mentioned in May.. there is a group of us girls who make pages and then when they are complete we send Maggie and she puts all of the pages together and then sends the completed calendar out to us.. I did May and October so I get two completed sets. I use one at work and one at home... Beings I am retiring the end of this month. WOO HOO.. I guess next year I will only do one set.. I love making these pages and enjoying the pages each girl does for the full month. I used a black cardstock and white chalk ink to give a misty fall look. I took yellow vellum and embossing folder to do the moon. The fence is Paper trey ink, Martha stewart bird punch, spell binder circle die, the plant die??? the pumpkins are sb ovals and sponged with orange ranger ink.
