2012 Calendar for ME!!!!







Hello my dears,   I have not created anything for myself for such a long time, so when I saw this desk top photo calendar on sale at Asda I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.   I will decorate each monthly page with my sweet Tilda's and it'll take pride of place in my craft room.

I used Tilda with gift from the Christmas Dreams collection, coloured her with pro & flex markers. Used a few doohickey die's and lots of stickles.  A full recipe is below this post if you would like to know details of the items.

I hope you all have a lovely crafty week ahead. Thanks for popping in to visit me. xxx

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge:  Anything Goes this month.

Just Magnolia & Hanglar Stangler Challenge:  Anything Goes this month with the option of New/New Year.
