November Already?

Is it just me, or has the year flown by for you also? There are only 24 days until Thanksgiving, and  Christmas is right around the corner. Have you started your Christmas shopping?

Using an idea I found on Mish Mash I created holiday planners to give as early Christmas presents. Inside each planner there is a memo pad. The image I chose to use for my planners is the snowman from Whimsie Doodles Snowman Soup.

Recipe for the planners:
Whimsie Doodles snowman image
Papertrey Ink cardstock vintage cream and kraft
My Mind's Eye designer paper
Bazzill cardstock
Copics markers
Martha Stewart baker's twine
SU border punch
Papertrey Ink memo pads

These were not difficult to create. I hope you find the time to make a couple for yourself and a friend or two.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week! LC

Linda, these are gorgeous. I had a friend make one for me last year. It is a great help for organizing all the gifts that you buy for everyone. It stopped me from over shopping. Great job on your books. Thanks for sharing it with us at our A Time For Giving Challenge at SSC.
Hugs xx

These are so cute and such a great idea! I'll definitely have to make a few of these to have around when someone needs a "scrap" of paper!
Thanks for playing with us at Stamptacular Sunday this week! Good Luck on our Gift challenge!
