8x8 Summer Calendar Layout

Hello, Summer-time People! It is Gloria with  you and it is my turn again on blog! My project this week is a bit simpler than the past few have been, but I really love how it turned out!
I have been meaning to create a decorative calendar display for about 5-6 years! Time just gets away from me! I combined the Graphic 45 Children's Hour and Time to Flourish collections to make this page.

I do not really want a calendar, rather I want something that I can display on a side table or shelf that show the months of the year. My plan is to make a page for each month, and then display them each month. I will also need to make a storage box......  There is a possibility that a storage box will be an upcoming project!
I used inks to "colorize" the Scribble Frame Birds and a bike from the Bicycles Shape Set.
To make the page, I cut dark brown cardstock to 8 1/4" x 8 1/4". Then, I added the August calendar page from the G45 Children's Hour 8x8 Calendar Pad. I wrapped the page with some red checked ribbon. I did not want the birds, so I cut the little birdie off the wreath frame and set her aside for later. I then glued the frame to the page.
I trimmed out the apple image from the September Time to Flourish Cut Apart paper and added that to the page. I used foam tape to pop the image a bit. I then added the bicycle with foam tape. (I adore that bike with its basket!)
I added the sentiment cut from the Children's Hour August Collective paper.
I glued flowers and some twine around the wreath and tucked a few postage images in.
I created a large bow and glued that to the bike.

Thanks for looking!
