Kate Crane's 2012 366 Challenge

On Kate Crane's blog, The Kathryn Wheel, she is having another calendar challenge this year, 2012 366 Challenge. Of course last year I just sat back and watched but this year I'm tired of watching. This year I'm choosing to do new challenges that get my hands a little more of a inky mess.

Here is my January calendar. I decided to do it in bright colors. I hate winter and snow (although snow is so pretty) I wanted to look at the calendar to remind me that spring is only months away.



As you can see today I'm home sick. The last couple of days I've felt like I have the flu so staying home from work was a good idea.  Although this afternoon I feel so much better.

Here are close ups of the pages.





I had so much fun doing this calendar. I'm already thinking if ideas for February. I have a few stamps I'm going to use for next month.

Forgot to mention the squares are made from a Spirelli square punch.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
