2012 Calendar Challenge

I liked the look of this challenge over on The Kathryn Wheel blog.  It has taken me a while to get going, so I have got quite a bit of catching up to do, but I am really enjoying it at the moment - lets hope it lasts all year!

As my new year mantra is reduce: reuse: recycle I thought I had better start with my own stash - I am going to try and do this challenge without buying anything new and do a bit of stash-busting!

I looked around for a suitable journal and decided to use an old Designers Guild catalogue.  The paper is a nice weight and not shiny, I had two copies so I took a couple of pages out of one and added into the other so that I had enough pages for the year.

This is what it looked like to start with.

Just to catch up this is my January page - will have to think hard about what I did in January.

This is my February page - this will be a bit easier to catch up as I have been doing the photo-a-day challenge. :)

and this is my March page - all ready for filling in.

Going to get started on the April page right away.
