2013 Calendar Display

Hi everyone just a few more days until Christmas.  If you are looking for a last minute gift idea, I hope I can inspire you today.  

I love to make these calendars for co-workers, friends, and family and they are always well received.
It only takes a few hours to whip one out, and look at how elegant they are for a desk or counter top.

For my base I started with a MyTeddyBoo Eiffel Tower chipboard mini album page.  I covered it with Pion Designs Studio of Memories Paper.  Then softened the paper with some gorgeous lace trim.  I embossed the tower with Frantage Shabby Gold embossing powder. The gorgeous floral spray was made from a mixed selection of Prima flowers, a few Tim Holtz metal embellishments, a button and some stamped tickets from the Prima Songbird stamp collection.  The calendars are adhered with a spiral Christmas Tree hook that I got from the dollar store. 
On the back, the Tim Holtz Small Easel die was used to make the panel sit on desk.  I made a pocket to house the extra calendar pieces.
I created this Calendar printable as a thank you to all of my followers.  I hope you find a use for it in some of your 2013 projects.  You may download it on my blog. 
Thanks for stopping in today, I hope you have a Merry Christmas.
