Well, a new year and maybe a new year resolution to blog more frequently?  Who knows?!!! I just don't want to make any promises I can't keep ;).  Anyhow, I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that the New Year will hold all that you hope it does.

At the moment, I am right in the thick of accounts and tax returns as tax returns have to be filed by 31 January here in the UK.  As usual, this has meant I haven't been able to take much time off over Christmas but I really want to have time to spend in photoshop and get some designing done! I actually did manage to open photoshop yesterday to finish making calendars for my mum and eldest son's girlfriend.   I used the Shabby Princess' one page calendar:

She makes some amazing calendar kits and they are so easy to use.  The problem I find is actually choosing which photos to use!

I then used another template, this time from Shutter Sisters:

If you click here or on the calendar photo above, it should take you straight to the Shutter sisters' blog where you can find links to the calendar download.

I ended up changing the template to a 6 x 4 calendar, and this is what I came up with:

The cover photograph is of Ironbridge, Shropshire and the other photos have the place names on them..  All the photos were taken by me and are all either here in Shropshire, or elsewhere in the UK.  If you would like a copy of this, then feel free to download it here.  Please bear in mind it is only 6" x 4" and I don't know how well it would stand up to being resized to a larger size.

Now, due to work commitments, I don't know when I will next be able to blog (probably not until February unfortunately), so in the meantime,  Happy New Year and happy scrapping!
