ok, so I am making a calendar for my mom, so I already got some legal size thick paper, I am gonna use to pages por each moth, one with a picture, one with the actual calendar, I've already printed out the calendar parts, with pictures of everybody in their birthday, and nice pistures illustrating each holiday, only now I don't know what to put in the other page... any ideas?


I wanted to do something like "mom's fmaily calendar" or that sort of thing, but since I've never seen the inside of one of those (cuz I refuse to buy it) I don't the format or anything

I would really apriciate any help

You could make color copies of old photos from your family that line up with the months and make a scrapbook type page for each of the months.  Like for June, use photos of your family around the end of school or summer break.   Moms tend to like that sort of think.

How about doing a collage for each month of things?  Assuming you are in the US, your could do a bunch a pictures of the flag and fireworks for July.  Look at some old calenders or bookstore ones for ideas on what they nomally  use.  If you are worried about the paper thickness, you can color copy the colage when you're  done and use that.

if you were going to do a collage of family photos you could also include some special "remember when" things for each of the months
