New Year, New Baby...

My lil brother and my SIL are expecting their first little bundle of joy any day now - very exciting (he is currently 5 days late so is keeping them waiting!). I have made this baby themed calendar for the nursery...


I would like to enter my easel calendar into the following challenges if I may:
Moving Along With The Times - Challenge 80, Ring out the old; ring in the new (old - corrugated card, twine; new - pennant die image)
Secret Crafter - Challenge 116, Tons of Texture (corrugated card, twine, buttons)

Supplies:
Image - die cut square from Lili of the Valley from my beautiful friend Tams
Cardstock - Bazzill kraft and some corrugated, not sure where I got this but had it for ages!
Papers - True Blue by MME from Dies to Die For
Sentiment ribbon - Pink Petticoat
Twine - stash
Calendar - Anitas
Buttons - stash
Tools - Pennants die from Whiff of Joy, circle & scallop circle Nesties
