Today's it's Father's Day in most of the world, but not in Australia. That doesn't mean that I didn't have to get crafty, as it's still Father's Day for my dad. Of course I made him a card.

Since I made a calendar for my mum for Mother's Day, I thought it would be nice to make a calendar for my dad too. It is on a smaller scale, as I used a display stand from Maya Road, but I still used the same calendar template, and simply shrunk it down. I also omitted the name of the month and year.
The display stand comes with 12 tabbed chipboard pages. I added the front myself from some left over chipboard.

I always love how it works out perfectly for all the months, as each grandchild is on the month they celebrate their birthday and the leftover months equates to exactly the right amount for each to have two pictures and one of the siblings. I possibly could have done with one more for a picture of the five of them together as those occasions are quite rare being 10,000 Miles apart.
I wish all the dads a very happy Father's Day. Did any of you create a keepsake for this special occasion? Enjoy your Sunday.
