Does anyone have a way to SLOW down time? It seems like I blink an eye and a week has passed by. So here it is Sunday, again, and the final day to post for Grungy Monday 11. . .
Last Monday Linda Ledbetter posted Grungy Monday #11 on her StudioL3 blog. We were to create something using Tim (Holtz) January (2008) Technique Challenge. I decided NOW was a good time to start working on Christmas presents. So I made a calendar, of sorts. . . it's not quite done yet. The pages are but it needs to be mounted on something or bound or . . . I will be sure to post a picture of the completed calendar when it is complete.
Check out Tim's blog for the directions. I used clear distress embossing ink instead of the color and 8.5 x 11 paper. After I finished step 11, I jumped to step 14 but instead of stamping I ran the paper through my printer. (I created the calendar in Printmaster, then used the image in MS Word and re-sized to get 2 calendar pages on one piece of paper.

Then went back to step 12 after cutting the calendar to the correct size.
The fabulous Linda (Ledbetter) will post a new challenge tomorrow (Monday) so make sure you drop by her blog and see what the challenge is so you can play along. I KNOW you don't want to miss the fun!
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Dad's day to all the dads out there!
