Ahhhhhh that's better

Some real playtime!   There has been so little me time recently, it's the slimming diet and actually having to cook food and then clean up the mess!  What with that, Challenges for Days, The Craft-Room and Unruly PaperArts squeezed into week-ends and evenings of winter days paper crafting just for the joy of it has been taking a back seat.   Until this week-end that is!

Our desk Calendars at work came in these clear holders.   Rather useful and far to go to waste don't you think?   I'm collecting as many of them as I can going to be fun doing things with them.   Might as well start with a new calendar.

This is January.    Poor quality pictures I'm afraid blame the light.   Graphic 45 pad from last year with calendar pad from this year.   Stamping of course then distressing with various inks.    Printed papers are a bit of a mystery for me, love them have pads of them but struggle to know what to do with them.   Fun then coming up with ideas for 12 pages.

Here is February.    Used the Tando Creative hearts mask for the back ground and lots of distress inks.   There is some water splattering on this page as well.

All in all I've made 8 pages so far, the rest will have to wait until Wednesday or Thursday.    I'll share the all with you between now and the new year.

For now I'm sharing January and February with:
