SU - Forget Me Not Keeper

I can't believe how fast the days have passed.  We are halfway through December and I am still trying to figure out how to get Xmas done.  I don't think my children would be thrilled with handmade gifts under the tree!  A while ago I watched a SU video where they used the Forget Me Not Keeper for a card box.  I decided I was going to give it a whirl.  To put my own twist on the idea, I decided to stamp the inside with Staz On.  Once I did that I decided I didn't want to add embellishments all over.  It looks so much better than the picture depics.  I used the Calendar stamp on cardstock, reduced it so I could add a bit of design around the calendar.  I love the idea that this is a gift that can be used year after year ... now I just need to fill it with cards.  If you want to see the video:

So how is everyone coming along with their holiday preparations.  I'd love an extra prayer as my husband faces a possible layoff this week!

You are in my prayers tonight Samie. My Hubby went through this back in August and I wouldn't wish it on anyone.
LOVE your 'keeper' what a great idea to stamp in Staz On. Love those calendar stamps.

Love the for-get-me-not keeper and the calendars pieces you made!

I'll pray for your hubby.
