Hi all and Merry Christmas in July :m:((;)

If you know me you will probably not be surprised, that this year my Christmas in July challenge will be a progressive challenge - again, lol :DD

After Snowmen and Gingerbread houses we will do something a little more practical this year: getting ready our calendars for 2014! If you play along you will have next year's calendar ready by the end of the month - plenty of time to look for great deals to get them printed in time to give them as Christmas presents (without having to pay express fees, lol).

I will provide you with the templates for your calendars - one template every day for the next 12 days, handed out progressive scrap style: Once you post one, you will get the next via pm. If you finish all twelve you will get a bonus - the months August-December 2013 so you can use your beautiful new calendar right away if you want to :))

The first template will be posted tomorrow, July 17th - deadline to finish will by July 31st.

Hope to see you tomorrow to start with January! :DD

I'm so in! I gave calendars last year to the family as Christmas Gifts and they were very well received and loved!! :DD

Thanks for forcing me to do this early and not wait until two weeks before Christmas, like last year :rolleyes: They cost me a fortune in shipping fees! :duh: And stress! :P

Like Kim, I did my calendar at the last minute ... fortunately for me, it was for my daughter who still lives at home and hand delivery isn't too expensive. However, I do have a lot of requests for this year, so your challenge is perfect!!!!

I just wanted to say thanks again Min for this challenge. I created the calendar in Artscow and my neice just received it and loved it!! She even took it to show and tell to shpw the kids at school.

Unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to get the whole page in, so I hads to modify it to use their dates, but it still looked fantastic!!
