A little touch up

I am a little particular when it comes to my personal calendar.
I like to see a month at a time and stray away from the day to day calendars
{I look at the big picture instead of all the details}
So finding the cutest planner is not easy when you are looking for a practical/affordable one.

I have been lucky enough to find this Mead planner two years in a row.
It meets two out of my three demands:
Cheap...under $10
One month at a time
Unfortunately it is not that pretty to look at, but easy to jazz up a bit!
Supplies for the touch up:
Scrap book paper
Scissors
Ruler
The Mead calendar comes with a clear plastic sleeve which is perfect to slide and type of paper in! What was once plain and boring is now pretty!
