Such a find is special and unique occasions throughout the year!!!
These unique holidays are our inspiration.
 As Neil Sedaka sang in his song "Calendar Girls" - "June, they’ll let me take you to the Junior Prom”. Ahhh, yes, remember those prom days, let alone the prom pictures??
 I remember my Senior Prom – went with one guy and came home with another!!!
 I wasn’t a very nice person and some say still not! (Lynne that is just not true... we think
you are wonderful!)
Holidays, Special and Wacky Days for June are:

  The entire line-up is available just in case you get bogged down with all the holidaze and craziness as you won't want to miss a single calendar event!!!!

My uniques dates are ICED TEA DAY and THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER!

For Iced Tea Day the first thing I thought of was Uncle Si and his sweet tea..
 I wasn't sure if it's the same thing but I couldn't get this image out of my head.
So here he is....

My next card is a first day of summer card.
I think I will use it as a birthday card.
I put CELEBRATE on it and then covered in stickles!
The deer and flower is from Give A Hoot.
The grass is also from Give A Hoot.
The paper and the ribbon is from my stash.

The line-up for June includes:

We are offering some fabulous blog candy to 3 lucky winners:

Miriam's Crafting Supplies is offering ten (10) sets of pearls to one lucky winner by becoming a fan on her new blog, Miriams's Crafting Blog,

The Stamping Chef,,
 is our wonderful sponsor for today's blog hop and has designed at least some of the images
 that have been used in today's hop.
 She is offering 3 of her wonderful designs, winner's choice to one lucky blog hopper that responds on each of the Calendar Girls along with her facebook page,,
commenting that you hopped with the Calendar Girls.

Lynne will be going through her stash and sending one lucky winner
 a surprise package to someone that remarks and
gives bloggie love on each of the participants on your worst prom memory.

I really don't have a worse or even best prom memory.
I went to prom a few times but all of them were great but not overly memorable.
I do have a couple of prom pictures that I really like but they are not of me..
well I can't find the one of my oldest daughter and her prom date .
but here is one of Emily my youngest in her dream prom dress

Your next stop along the way of the calendar is Lynne.  
Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month
to see what Holidays to Celebrate on July 13, 2013,
for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!

The Stamping Chef - For Dad Challenge

Happy Wednesday! ...
Thanks for checking out my take on our Dad's Challenge!
I had another post done but it got lost in blogger land somewhere.
I love the tools in this file...
I made the card into a mini toolbelt made to look
like faux leather.
I just sprayed the paper with water , then crumpled it, then spread it  back out.
I then heated with heat gun to dry quicker. I then inked it!
The screws are brads... I love them!
My faux hankie is some paper from my stash.
Mr. Fix Alot is the file I used and you can find it here!
I have only used a few items from this file so go check it out!!!
