Die Cut Dreams - Challenge #104 - Calendar

Hi Girls...

Well here we are again, time for another challenge at Die Cut Dreams..... this time the challenge is to make a calendar page for January 2012..

Now I'm not known for making things other than cards, so I did scratch my head.... but then just decided to 'have a go'!

I used one of my beautiful Gorjuss Girls, this one is called Waiting (bought from Samuel Taylors at Embsay... ), coloured her with my copics and promarkers... then cut her out and 3D'd her with foam pads onto an oval nestie (classic ovals large). I used a 'Delicate Vine' Memory Box die and some silver mirri card for the decorations.... and made my own calendar for January on the computer using an old fashioned typewriter font. All this was put onto some matching bazzil - then onto more mirri card.... well I had to make up for the lack of glitter, didn't I???

Hope you like my calendar.... Why don't you pop on over to the Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog and check out my lovely teamies creations.... they're sure to inspire you to have a go at entering! And it's a lovely way to think about the New Year, and this time the challenge is open for four weeks so you have plenty of time to come up with a fab creation!
