I decided to make a couple of my 'SOMETHING NEW' a calender - actually I made two, one for my desk and one for the kitchen.
I have visited every shop available  that sells calenders to find one suitable -NO!!!  They have long, thin onea, wide ones all attached to images, I did find one 'page a day' - they were about 2/3 inches thick  and had tatty paper about fit to wiping the floor and nothing else. The answer was - make your own - I just wish it hadn't taken forever!!!!!

I made a hanging calender for this one, used the Hero Arts Leafy Vines again - this time used Neenah Desert Storm, embossed it and tried coloured it with Copics - this was a little difficult and   fiddling but I do like the result.
I use layers with the MFT Scalloped and then added a little envelope to added he calender pages until I can find one to buy, meanwhile I cut one up -  the only one found the right size - sadly it was red!!!
