Welcome 2011 --- Happy New Year! Bless the Beasts and the Children Challenge

Mo Manning's DP2 challenge this week is "Bless the Beasts and the Children" which means using a stamp or combination of stamps with at least one animal and one child.  Mo's amazing selection of digi-stamps leaves no shortage of just such images.  I had already colored this one of Bella and Bronte for a New Year project.

In keeping with one of my craft resolutions for 2011, and inspired by blog buddies Lynette and Vicki, I have created a calendar for January 2011.  For the calendar format, the confetti, and the banner I used the Print Shop Pro Publisher.  I made it a full 8 1/2 by 11 so I can write in appointments and reminders right on the calendar and keep it near my work space.  Bella and Bronte are colored with Copics and the confetti Bella is tossing in the air is actually several colors of glitter inks.

From Bella, Bronte and me:  HAPPY NEW YEAR!
