2011 Calendar

This is one of the presents I made for my Mum...it's one of the 'Create a Calendars' from the Papermill Shop. As there are rather a lot of photos...I've made them into a slideshow:


The images are mainly Penny Black, but there's also some Lili of the Valley and Toodles & Binks images. The papers are a mixture of all the usual suspects: My Mind's Eye; BasicGrey; and Pink Paislee. There's not too much else on there...just a little bit of Cuttlebug embossing...I tried to keep them really simple, and made all of the 'pictures' A6 sized...for easy recycling into cards when the calendar's finished with. I did a couple of the slim calendars too this year...but forgot to photograph them before I wrapped them...doh!...but they were pretty similar to this one...all different images & papers...but set out in portrait, rather than landscape to fit the calendar.

I'm going to enter this into my lovely friend Samantha's Christmas Candy Challenge.
