Magnolia Down Under Challenge DT - Calendars

First I want to spare a minute to say that my thoughts are with you all in Australia with the dreadful floods. I cry every time it is on the news and I hope you're all staying safe.

We have a great challenge this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge this week which is to either make a calendar/calendar page or feature a calendar on your project. I've wanted to make a calendar with my Magnolias for a long time now and just haven't got around to it so this was the perfect opportunity! I've only made this page so far but there is a while to go until February LOL!! I have used Magnolia paper and some scraps of MME paper for the stars. The calendar is a Papermania chipboard album which I have to say was such a bargain at £2.99!!
I just had to ink up this gorgeous Tilda from the winter kit again. She's so cute! I've coloured her with copics. The star behind her and the rest on the page are a sizzix die.
I created the calendar myself on the computer. The 2011 was cut with Tim Holtz Market Street die and the circle is a nestie. The spacer and glitter brads are from my stash. I added a scrap of lace with a stapler.

Hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this week at Magnolia Down Under Challenge. Pop over to the blog to be inspired the rest of the team's amazing creations! Thanks for looking! x
