Live and Love Crafts - Roses are Red

Roses Are Red
And Violets Are Blue

is this weeks inspiration theme but lemme tell you all I saw in that whole phrase were 2 words.
"Blue" and "Roses"!!   hee hee

This week I decided to create a calendar inspired by a few of the girls at LLC.  I used an image from the new Pion papers "Wintertime in Swedish Lapland" and many extra's from the same collection.

I had a few stars and a moose that I colored with Tim Holtz's distress paint and covered with TH distress crackle paint.  I even distressed the edges of the stars before adding the crackle paint to give it more of an aged look.  I added a tag with some shabby seam binding and a set of wings. 

I did the same thing with the lamp post as above, inserted a few small pieces from the Pion papers and created another gorgeous Wild Orchid bouquet.

As soon as November is over, you can take it off and December is right behind it.  I set up the paperclips so it can be held at the top and the left hand papers are unglued so you could slide in some of the edge of a  new calendar.  A person could actually create more calendars if they wanted to leave it up for winter. 

Don't forget about our PINK challenge this month at LLC

As well as Sandy's GIVEAWAY at LLC this month!

So I hope you liked my first calendar!!  I am sooooooo making a bunch more of these.  Maybe even one for myself?  How hard is it for us to keep something we made for us?  I don't know about you but I find it tough.  Let me know if you have a tough time with that.  I'm curious.  :)
