Calendar Project: Part 1

I set several crafting goals for myself this summer:
* complete unfinished projects 
* use more of my (neglected) supplies
* create projects other than cards
* begin work on my scrap booking projects

While cleaning my craft room this summer I found two Close To My Heart Event Calendars on the top shelf of the closet. I bought them years ago and had totally forgotten about them. This was the perfect project to meet several goals. I decided to complete both of the calendars - one for myself and one to give as a gift to a family member.
The calendar is made up of 12 pages and can be used year after year. You can record birthdays, anniversaries and other important dates for each month.
A blank square at the top of each page is ready for stamping or creating a decorative panel to represent the various months.

I designed additional panels to fit across the bottom of each page in order to cover the Close To My Heart logo and complement the main design panel at the top
