February`s calendar layout...

 This year i came across a blog called The Kathryn Wheel and Kate is running a 2010-365day calendar challenge!!
What i saw was inspiring and even though it was Feb i took up the challenge although mine will be running through to 2011.
For me trying to craft every day doesn`t always work so once i planned my page with the journalling squares, each day i popped on a little something about that day then later went back and used another journalling tag to either write,embellish or doodle on, then using utee i glazed the whole square and popped it on top of the original...why i hear you ask?....well this month my fav things are-
Utee  love using it on everything at the mo
Cosmo Cricket fabilicious papers
Ink to make it shabby
The trusty sewing machine
Unity stamp for the month of Feb image..Just found Unity and luv the stamps
and in a homeage to The Man himself "Tim Holtz" i used recycled coke bottle tops to mark his appearance on QVC,ordering the TSV and the parcel arriving on the Saturday..still whooping here,lol!!
The last day of the month i spent drooling over his new book so watch out for my March layout could be filled with Tim Holtz techniques..well maybe a few,lol!!!
With all my favs maybe i should have made my layout kinda "BIGGER"!
Still can hardly believe that i have actually managed to do something just for me for a change!!!!
Wonder what this month will bring???????
If you get a chance then pop by Kates blog for some inspiration and check out everyone elses fab pages.
Big hugs to you all
and thank you for leaving such lovely comments it always makes me smile.

Wow Tracy!!! This is stunning - the colours you have used for your base and all of the stitching is just gorgeous - I can't quite zoom in close enough to make out all of the squares (they look about inchie size (are they?)) but the overall effect is so fabulous.

I'll check out the blog you've linked but I love this - inspirational :0)

Looking forward to seeing March and might have a go at this myself - thank you for sharing xx
