If It's Groovy 4th Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to If It’s Groovy 4th Birthday Blog Hop! 

So glad your are joining the IIG Design Team through an inspiring journey of calendar pages. We also have some friends of IIG from the True XOXO Design Team joining us on this journey! 
I hope that you will find inspiration along the way and want to create a calendar page or pages of your own.

I created a layout for June using a calendar page and patterned papers from the Canvas Corp Black & Kraft Collection and a photo of my awesome brother-in-law Bill, to document his 53rd birthday:
Other products used:
MME Kraft Funday Chipboard
