A Cute Desk Set

I've had this project in mind for a while but have never gotten to it. Well today was the day. This project is made from two sizes of chipboard coasters, some paper, flowers, images and pearl brads. And last but not least a calendar note pad set from Michaels!

Don't you just love this little Pagent Winner! She is a cute little Whipper Snapper Designs stamp that we picked up at the London Scrapbook Expo last saturday. I couldn't leave the little girl behind :-)

Okay so the first one is a large coaster with a To Do list that hangs on the wall. The coaster is an odd size (around 5 3/4 or something like that). I took some green cardstock and wrapped around. It isn't glued down in the front so that when your paper pad is empty you can just slip it out and slip in a new one (oh yah, I'm smart!). I added in a cute little saying from SU, some Prima flowers and a pearl brad from K & Company. The little pageant girl is coloured in with my prismacolour markers and the crown has some added glitter with a Sakura Gel pen.

And the second part is a little stand up calendar. It is made with two 4" coasters covered with paper and hinged with some cardstock. Once you get the calendar on there isn't much room to play around so I just added the flowers and pearl brad to keep the theme going.
The blue paper is from Magnolia and the green cardstock is Bazil Bling. They matched really good with the calendar.

I just wanted to share with you the cutest little guy. He is definately growing by leaps and bounds, Jonathan will be 7 months on Oct 3rd. He's totally mastered crawling at a super speed and has started couch walking. There is no doubt that he will be walking by christmas. I only hope that the christmas tree will survive his first christmas. We might have to go out and buy the gate that is big enough to make a little yard and put it around the tree, lol. It's gonna be fun.
Today Jonathan was sporting his "little man" golf shirt with his "railroad" jeans (they have the cute little stripe in them) and then his Faded Glory cowboy boots from Walmart in the states (we don't have Faded Glory in canada). The top of his cowboy boots is camo print, so cute.

Happy Stamping!
