Calendar Girl

Hi everyone from a very damp Somerset. Today I'm sharing a project I made ages ago! The Craftwork Cards DT were all asked to produce a project for their 2017 Calendar. My project was to be for October and I was sent the Vogue paper pad to work with.

Now, big projects aren't really my thing so I was a bit daunted by the whole thing. However, I decided to get myself some hexagonal boxes and set about decorating them:

It took me an awfully long time to die cut all those flowers and leaves and just as long to stick them all on!

I really love the top of the smallest box with this gorgeous peacock:

In the end, I was happy with the end result, very proud that it features in the calendar and that it also made an appearance on Create and Craft just before Christmas. I have the calendar in my craft room and it is lovely to see my fellow DT members every day- at the moment it's Julie Hickey and her fabulous March project. I'm not sure how I'll feel about seeing my photo every day in October though!

Hope you have a lovely day wherever you are. Thank you for visiting today x
