Daily Doodles Doodlebug - May Birthday Calendar

Hi everyone, on Doodlebug's blog we're featuring calendars/planners the Daily Doodles collection. These calendar pages are so versatile and there are so many ways in which you can use them! I decided to create a new birthday calendar as I've been wanting to create a new one for ages now (as my current one is 30 years old!), but for one reason or another I just never seemed to find the time, until now. So here's what I did for the month of May:

As I plan to use this calendar for at least 10 years I got started by covering up the days of the week. Next I printed little photos of my hubby, one of my sons, my father in law and a nephew, who all have their birthdays in May. I adhered the numbers using different colors of Teensy Type stickers. I used lots of my favorite Doodlebug washi tape, strips of paper, lots of stickers and a couple of those adorable ladybug shape sprinkles. Almost everything I used comes from the awesome Spring Garden collection

I had such a great time decorating! I mean, how super cute are those little birdie stickers and that washi tape with ladybugs?? I'm so in love with everything Doodlebug!! 

For extra dimension I added a couple of mini doodle-pops .... yes, more ladybugs! Loving all the ladybugs on my calendar! 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope I have inspired you to create something with these fun and versatile daily doodles pages as well! Happy Crafting!
