Art Pad Calendars

Hi Crafters,

As it's already three weeks in to January I thought it was time I shared  the calendars that I made at the end of last year!
I would have shown them before but with all the issues I've had of late with my old computer crashing and then this new one I thought the photo's were gone....
...but good news, most of my files were recovered. I lost a few things but not nearly as much as I'd first thought and these photo's were among them.





Both were made with LOTV Art Pad images and some pretty die cuts and papers.


I had one calendar booklet left and so decided to make an MDF hanging one.


This has the dinky measurement of 12cm x 9cm and looks really cute hanging from a magnet on my fridge door.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Crafty Girlz - #11 ATG 

It's started off the day very frosty and cold but bright and dry, just how I like it - so chores done, I'm off to play in my craft room.

What a relief that you have been able to recover some of your files Lorraine, having been there I know the nightmare.

Two lovely calendars and especially like the first with the birdhouses and the summery feel to it.

These are so beautiful!
What a pain with your PC so glad you didn't lose everything! When my phone gave up on me a few months ago it was a nightmare I lost all my photos of cards and everything and all my digis! Luckily lots I had on mums PC and in emails but took forever finding them. Lost so much though!

I had a similar experience two years ago when my hard drive went down and I too thought I had lost everything. In fact I hadn't but it did teach me to back up to my external drive more frequently! I rally like these calendars Lorraine and I think I will be doing some of these next (I mean THIS) year. Hugs Christine xx

Lorraine, these are extraordinarily beautiful... what gorgeous ways to keep track of the days. The images are spectacular and I love the papers and trims for each. They are so elegant, filled with sweetness and beauty. I'm relieved you were able to recover most of your files. I hope you have a blessed weekend. :o)

Beautiful easel calendar pads Lorraine, I am waiting for mine to get back in stock to do the same...probably be like last year and they were available in July....so never used them. Maybe I can just change the 5 to a 6??
A relief you could save some of your things, it's a real pain when all is lost..xx
