I truly have been blessed to have made friends with some very wonderful people on this fantastic website and there are a couple gals that have found a special place in my heart. I wanted to give them something to show how much they mean to me and how much I truly appreciate their friendship. The only way I thought to do that was to make a calendar -- mostly of pictures from the upper Midwest. One of these terrific friends use to live here in MN. These images are of the calendar I made for her. She's now living in North Carolina, so I thought I would send her a bit of place she use to call home.
I like the paper that came with this calendar kit, especially the ppr for December. Its really pretty in person. This picture was taken near Ladysmith, WI where my husband's hunting cabin is located. There was a heavy snow storm during one of the last few seasons. This shot was taken as the sun was coming up thru snow-laden pine trees. Really like the image. The poinsettia is from Michael's. It was originally white and I used pink tone chalk to give it a blush. TFL!
