Calendar Project: Part 2:

This is the second post featuring various designs that I 
created for my Event Calendar (Close To My Heart). 
You can find the initial post, including projects from January to June  here.

I designed decorative panels to fit the blank square at the 
top of each page and another to fit across the bottom 
(this covers the Close To My Heart logo and complements the top design panel).

Your calendars are beautiful! My sister and I had a 'calendar making day' this past January just for us and like you said, it is so much fun pulling out and combining tons of stamps.
