Calendar Creations at Saturday Spotlight

Saturday SpotlightCalendar



This week for the Saturday Spotlight we were to create anything that had a
calendar.. The details are below.. I created my calendar with the help of a
VERY kind SCSer named Cat..She has many different types of calendars and
she generously has updated them all for 2010. I could not have created
this project without her help. If you would like to check it out HERE is the
post she has on SCS..Leave her some love if you use her templates.  She
has many different designs.  You just need to go to SCS and click on Forums/Stamping
Stuff/Downloads/Templates.  She created this one so that you can stamp
on the side. Thanks so much Cat for all your help..

This image is from  Squigglefly and is called Catching Snow.. He is so cute.  He is
illustrated by Cheryl Alger.

A huge shout out to my hubby that made the calendar holder for me.. I was
stumped on how I was going to display my calendar.. I saw a similar one over
at Taylored Expression.. My hubby came in from his workshop and had created
one and surprised me.. He's a keeper. He keeps asking me if I posted this yet.
I think he is as excited as I am. 

The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to go CRAZY with calendars! 
Whether you decided to make a coaster calendar, a calendar notebook, 
an easel card with a miniature calendar, tear up your old 2009 calendar 
for some collage background pieces or get out your calendar stamps/images 
and just use one month for inspiration....we would love to see you get into 
the calendar craze with us!  Check out the Diva's creations HERE..



Our sponsor this week is Bee Crafty.  You can visit the store HERE.
