For my projects:

World UFO Day

I used Space Age Paper to make a plaque for a special little boy to hang on his wall.

Moon Day

I also used Space Age Paper on this project to commemorate the landing on the moon.

Aunt and Uncle Day

This is a special card I made for my Aunt and Uncle.  My Aunt was my Mother's only sister and such a special link to my past.  My Aunt and Uncle lived their entire lives in Jefferson County Alabama.  After Seventy something years :-) they relocated recently to Arizona to live near their daughter.  I miss them so much, but the memories in my heart are enough to last me a lifetime.

I will be the last stop along the way of the calendar today.  Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on August 10, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
