Birthday/Anniversary Calendar

I am trying to get a head start on Christmas gifts this year. I decided to make, for a family member that shall remain unnamed, a Birthday/Anniversary binder. It has a page for each month that allows you to write in birthdays and anniversary's for each day of the month. The pages have a pocket that can hold cards for those special days. Here's a close up of the covered. The colors aren't true to life here, but to capture the text I had to modify slightlly in Photoshop. The cupcake to me was the perfect image....you can't celebrate a birthday or anniversary without cake! My color scheme is mainly PTI Lemon Tart, with the text accent in PTI Summer Sunrise. Lastly a close up of the spine. I really like how this turned out! Now I have to get to making cards to fill the inside!!!
Supplies
Stamps: PTI (Calendar Basics, Cupcake Collection, Wedding Day, Simple Alphabet)
Paper: PTI (Lemon Tart), Neenah (White)
Ink: Copic, PTI (Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise), Palette (Black)
