november gratitude calendar…

Hi friends!  I recently took a turn sharing a "Daily Doodles" idea over on the Doodlebug Design blog!  I decided to make a fun gratitude calendar for November, a place to jot down a little something I'm grateful for each day for the entire month.

I love that the squares are small, so I don't have to add a lot of detail - just a quick little something. I started with the bumblebee daily doodles base and added lots of stickers, embellishments, doodle tape, and accents from the "fall friends: and "give thanks" collections.

I also pulled out all of the coordinating alphabet stickers I had in my stash and used several different styles and colors to add numbers to some (not all) of the days.

Many of the stickers are added with foam adhesive dots.  Others are already 3-d, because they are doodle-pops!!

     Of course, Thanksgiving Day called for the turkey doodle-pop!  Isn't he the cutest?!?

I wanted to add this cute little notebook paper sticker to the top of my calendar page.  I embellished it with shaped sprinkles and stickers.

Here's a quick little tip - when you want to have stickers hang over the edge, sprinkle the sticky part that's hanging off with a bit of baby powder!  Wipe off the excess and now there's no more sticky left!
