Calendar 2011

I am trying to create a calendar for 2012 as part of a calendar challenge.  I'm cheating a little here because this one is from last year.  Haven't had time to sit down and create for 2012 and it is due on Sunday.  Ugh!  Well, once our party is finished tomorrow perhaps I'll get something done for the 2012 calendar challenge.  The sample below is something I did with my upline at one of her classes.  Not sure if she got inspiration from someone else or if it is her own.  If we CASE'd something from another person I am sorry I can't give credit, as I don't know where it came from. 

There is a separate owl for every month representing the main holiday for that month.  The owls have magnets on their backs, which is what keeps them affixed to the round piece of metal at the top of the calendar.  The owls I have included here are Christmas, New Years, St. Patrick's Day and Valentine's Day.  There are some really cute ones for Memorial Day, back to school, Halloween, and other months.  They were a lot of work, but soooo cute!   So, what can I do for 2012 that will top this cute creation.  Thanks, Buffy, for this calendar from 2011.  I used it every month and had fun using all the owls.

Well, I am still trying hard to sit down with my Occasions pre-order.  I fear Sunday or Monday will be the soonest I can take time.  First on my Occasions agenda is to use the new edgelit.  I didn't get the Bordering on Romance stamp set so will have to find something else to go with the edgelit.  I bought the Blossoms punch and the Mixed Bunch stamp set, and those are others I want to use soon.  In the meantime, I am showing you something old and hope the new is on the way.

Ok, so back to my party preparations.  I'm giving myself small breaks today but my break is over.  Hope you enjoyed my old calendar.  Come back soon to see the new one.

Crafty Hugs,
