A Vintage Calendar

Happy Thursday, can you believe it is almost September?  Doesn't take a rocket scientist to tell you what is just around the corner, lol.  I love calendars, and pretty much keep my eyes open all year round for them.  Some time this week over at the Silhouette Forum someone posted a really cool link for a Victorian site, so I checked it out Call me Victorian and found this wonderful vintage calendar with 2013 dates.
I have a friend who is a play write and she loves vintage, especiall type writers and she also loves tags, so I combined them and came up with this.

The calendar is in PDF format and arrives for an 8 1/2"X11" page, so I made it smaller and saved it as a JPEG.  I mounted it to a 6"X6" piece of chipboard.  Then used the vintage type writer and type letters from the Silhouette Library.  The tags are an Ellison die and the tags have wishes that I wish for her in 2013 - "joy", "vim", "mojo" and peace.  I could not resist just a splash of color with the hearts.  Her initials are under the type writer.  The calendar stands with an easel stand on the back.

Have a great day! Hugs
