Default the what and the when

Hi all and Merry Christmas in July

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

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!

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

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

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!!

Here is the link if you want to see.
