Monthly craft challenge 2010

Well folks, I thought that as I enjoyed doing the 52 Q&A last year I would attempt to organise my own challenge. Last years challenge was weekly and I have to confess, with my busy life I found it difficult to keep up so this year I came up with the idea of doing a monthly challenge of a calendar for 2011. Each month you will design a page for the following years corresponding month. Normally the challenge will be set on the 1st of every month, however this months is a little late in getting posted due to the fact Ive only just thought of it.

Each page can be what ever shape and size you decide your calendar should be and can be bound however you choose. It can be either digital or papercraft (hope this is the correct term of phrase) in design. In fact its your calendar you choose the over all design. All I ask is that you include certain elements to each page each month.

Just to get us started off, a simple element of Snow should be included in January's page, given the amount of snow that is about this month I thought it was fitting. I do hope you enjoy this challenge and that you are able to complete your calendars Happy Crafting.

I will put a list of people who are joining in this challenge with a link to their blog if they have one just as soon as I figure out how to do it again lol But for the time being the list at the bottom of this post have agreed to do this challenge so far at least, please dont hesitate to contact me if you would like to join in so I can add your name.

Oh,......... Ive just thought, just to sweeten the pot a little I will have a competition to win a prize of stash (not decided what yet but I know crafters any stash will do lol) I will bring in a impartial judge to decide the winner(s) in January next year (December is too busy a month) Ooooh Im kinda excited now, my first big challenge set. Oh I do hope people join in and have as much fun participating as I did on someone elses challenge last year.
