Woohoo, congratulations! - You almost made it! Only this one more month and your calendar for 2014 will be ready to print!:((:((:((

Hosting this challenge has been a delight - you all created stunning, gorgeous pages. I am very sad and sorry that I didn't have more time to leave love and praise in the gallery :'(- but I loved looking at your pages when getting ready to pm you the next links. So thank you all very much for giving me something so beautiful to look at every time I logged into the forum (and a lot of ideas and inspiration, as well)!:)):XX


Please, post your December pages in this thread. I am asking this for two reasons:

1. I would be sad not to know what your last pages will look like!

2. Remember there's a prize for those who finish before July 31st? You will get the templates for August 13-December 13, so if you want to, you may use your new calendars right away, just in time for the new school year!:DD

Thank you all for playing - I'll see you around! <3

I wish I had seen this challenge at the beginning, instead of just today! This would have been so much fun! I've been making calendars as gifts FOR YEARS (even before I had Photoshop Elements) and it is a lot of fun, but a lot of work, too. In fact, I was working on my calendars this weekend. This would have made things SO MUCH EASIER. Congrats to all who completed their calendars! What I've seen so far have been wonderfully creative!

The bonus links are in your inboxes - so you're not suffering from calendar withdrawal, lol ;D

Here's my December calendar page. This has been sooooo much fun and I am really excited to have a calendar almost ready for printing......I'm going to add holiday info, birthdays, etc before I'm finished. Many thanks to Min, Carin Grobe Designs, for providing the templates and keeping this going for us. I know it required alot of your time. I also thank, Maurine Stettler of Let Me Scrapbook for her wonderful monthly Recipe Card Exchange {here at the Studio} and the great kits she provides us each month.

Wow - these are great calendar pages. Super challenge Min - it's like shopping ahead of time for Christmas. Now you all will have something to share with family and friends - and it's already done! I wished I'd been able to squeeze some time in to do this challenge. My family looks forward to my calendars every year and it would have been great to have it done by now. Fabulous pages - you guys must feel a real sense of accompmlishment - kudos to you all!

07-29-2013, 01:28 PM
First, let me thank you so much for hosting this challenge. Thank you for giving me that "push" to get my calendars created before December 24. I'm sure there are several that I'll rework, but at least I have a good beginning.

Here's my calendar for December.


07-29-2013, 02:01 PM
Thank you so much for hosting the challenge Min! This is the first time I have made a calendar even though I always said I was going to do it next year. I am so happy that you hosted this so I was able to get one done this year.

Everyone's calendars are so gorgeous and gave me ideas.
