My January calendar page.

Morning Peeps!!

I couldn't resist entering a few challenges this morning..
 papertake weeklys anything goes week , they are also having a 'new' theme extra if you like and the
Allsorts Challenge blog- new Begginings .

I just had to share my January calendar page with you. I just couldn't find a calendar I fancied for this year, I looked everywhere but nothing was grabbing me and when I got my new Wryn's from Christy I knew they would be just perfect for me to do my own thing and make my own calendar!! yey me!!!

I made the January page in word on my computer and then I added Wryn to the top. I placed her so that her little feet just come over the top, she looks so cute that way. Then I printed it out onto some of my yummy promarker cardstock.

** teeny edit- I have had a couple of emails from people asking for the word doc for just the calendar dates. If you would like it too please email me but be aware there will be NO WRYN on it, she is available for purchase HERE it will just be the calendar blank. The font will be comic sans and you can highlight all the page and then change to font for whatever you fancy on yours.**

On the back there are 2 little magnets. I bought them from yellow moon for Mo ages ago but they are just perfect for the back of this as it sitting nicely on my fridge side now!!

Here's a close up of Wryn, she is just so seriously adorable. I have to admit to being completely hooked on her.

skin- blush, soft peach and peach.
Hair- sandstone, cinanmmon and cocoa.
Dress and bird- cool grey 2,3,4, 
Top and shoes- antique pink and coral
Tree- cocoa and sandstone
Leaves- olive green,pear green

I stamped my fav magnolia swirl around the edges in frayed burlap distress ink and then rubbed faded jeans over the top to make it all smoosh together.

So I guess thats me for today. My little Mo goes back to school today and I am dreading it. I absolutely adore having him home and he is less than keen to go back today but I am sure he will love catching up with his friends, I will be lost at home without my buddy though!!

Thankyou for popping in on me!!
Huge hugs Lou xxxx
