Challenge #6...

Challenge #6:
As I get closer and closer to the birth of this baby, I get more and more obsessed with organizing my life. This challenge ties right into that. This challenge has to do with organizing your life and your time with a calendar. There are two ways that you can do this challenge. You can create a real calendar along the lines of what I have done or you can create a layout page using a calendar as an embellishment.

The template for the calendar that I used can be found at . Just print these templates off onto cardstock and you have the beginnings of your own custom-made calendar.

The calendar that I made is meant to be stood up on your work-table. This is perfect to keep track of contest deadlines and challenges. It is simply made from 2 pieces of heavy-weight chipboard for the base which are both painted in a coordinating color and then the one side of the front piece is decorated with photos and patterned paper. Print off the 8 calendars left for this year (how big you print them will determine what size you want your chipboard base.) The calendars are attached at the top using book rings so that you can change them each month. The stand is simply made by punching holes in the side edges and attaching a bit of ribbon.

That’s all there is to it. It is a very simple project and would also make a great Baby’s first year baby gift. If you don’t have room for a standing calendar, you could very easily hang it on the wall by running a ribbon tied in a bow through the book rings at the top and just use one piece of chipboard rather than the two.
