Saturday Spotlight - SSHP12 - Calendar Craze

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! Don't have a calendar? Here's a link you can use to print off any or all months of 2010: Click Here! (Check out the Spotlight Diva inspiration on the blog!)

**One lucky winner from our challenge in Mister Linky this week drawn from will receive any three single images OR a set OR a PDF from the shop!!**

Here's my creation for the Calendar Craze challenge today:

There was NO stamping done on this creation but how could you go wrong with these fun images from the Crafty Secrets Seasonal Booklet!! The little January calendar is also Crafty Secrets ... one of their Creative Scraps. The images were matted with silver metallic cs, the background panel is DCWV and the base card is Very Vanilla. I've also added a strip ov music designer paper by The Paper Studio. My only embellishment on this January Calendar Card is the silver tinsel. How could we begin a new year without a little sparkle!!!

Please don't forget to check out the wonderful creations by my Diva Sistahs ... you will amazed & inspired with what these talented ladies have come up with!!
