Clipboard Calendar: September 2016

2016 Calendar Sept HeaderI love this September Calendar! The Basic Black Card Stock works as a blackboard background and is perfect for writing on using a Chalk Marker. You can be as creative as you’d like with this, I just chose the basic “A, B, C” theme and simple line drawings of an apple and crayon.  If you have the wood grain stamp, stamp up the Soft Suede first.
