TLC Calendar Girl Blog Hop!!!!

Welcome to the TLC Calendar Girl Blog Hop !  If you've just stumbled here, and haven't started at the beginning which is over at TLC, then you will want to click here to take you there to start your journey!  It is there you will find the list of blog stops and pick up some freebies from each DT member along the way.

I am super excited today to show you what you can do with all the calendar months that you pick up along our hop today!!  You will want to stick it out thru all my pics because somewhere in between all the pictures will be the month's March and May freebie for you to grab!

When I heard that our theme for this hop was "Calendar Girls", I was inspired to make a Vintage 2012 Mini Calendar using word art and all the calendar months from TLC!  Here is the front view of the calendar bound together with various ribbon and a metal beaded ring that I recycled from my daughter's Chapstick case:

Here is the inside flap containing a tag that has one of Paulette's sentiments stamped on it!  The front of the pocket I created also has one of Paulette's sentiments.  These both happen to be my favorite TLC sentiments!
 
Each tag is double sided by month, starting with January!

February
March (below the pic is your freebie!! Click on it, and right click to save yours!)


                                                                                 April


                                                     May (yours is below the photo to grab!)
 
                                                                       
                                                                                June


                                                                            July


                                                                             August

                                                                           September
                                                                               October


                                                                         November


                                                                        December
This is the inside of the back cover page - I've created another pocket and tiny tag with another favorite TLC sentiment:

And here it is all bound together again!

I hope I've inspired you to give a mini calendar a try with all those goodies that Paulette is generously giving you today during our hop! 

Your next stop along our hop is my teamie Jennifer S.!  Wait til you see what she has in store for you today!!

Happy Hopping!!
