Crafty Secrets DT Challenge!

This month Vicki Chrisman our DT leader wanted to do a Girlfriends Challenge! Sandy Redburn from Crafty Secrets
is doing a give-away on her blog , you need to check it out!
Sandy is donating $1 from every Support the Girls stamp set purchased to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Support the Girls is a fun set to make cards and gifts for your girlfriends and family. It's also a good set for support of survivors and those who are going through breast cancer.

I decided to make a calendar, it's a reminder to do the weekly self breast exam. You could hang it in the bathroom or bedroom as a reminder. I've highlighted each Friday to do the exam.

I used 1 piece of the Sweet Chips Chipboard Square Albums & Frames for the base and covered it with SU! Regal Rose cardstock. I used the square word stamp from the Support the Girls set to make my back ground paper. I stamped it with Regal Rose ink on white cardstock. This is so easy to do with the clear stamps, I didn't have to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig, you can see exactly what you're doing!I printed the free 2009 calendar download that Sandy has on the Crafty site, cut it, stamped each page with the swirl from the Mini Memories set and highlighted each Friday with a pencil eraser and RR ink. I used the image from the Girlfriends Image & Journal Notes booklet, it just cracks me up!!! I cut the RR calendar base with my Nestie die and put Perfect Pearls on the scallops. I glued the pink clip on with E6000, you can remove the calendar when the year is over without destroying your project! I added the white flowers and stick pin by SU!, pink paper roses, pink crystals hanging from the bottom by Heidi Swapp and pink satin ribbon by Martha Stewart.

Make sure and check the other girls blogs using the links below and see what they have done with this set!
I hope y'all have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea for the Calendar. Many of us forget to even do this even once a month. Don't you just love that image. I really like how you put this all together.
