Elphine House Australia Challenge - Around We Go!

Welcome to the last challenge of 2011 from Elphine House Australia!

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas! Today the weather here is awful, we have strong winds and rain. Just miserable. Its certainly a day for crafting!

So onto the challenge. Over at EHA the challenge this time is "Around we go". We are looking for projects with circles somewhere on there. Whether it a round card, or round mats and backgrounds, circular decide. As always you can use any Elisabeth Bell image from any Company. There are hundreds of EB fans out there so pop by and join in our last challenge of the year!!
For my project i have made a circular calendar using one of my favourite images of all time..."Dasiy".  I coloured her using Distress Inks. You can buy her here at the Elphine House Australia Store.
Here she is close up.

I used My Minds Eye paper for the top circle layer and the die circles are my Marianne design die. This was a very quick make but worked out great. The ribbon and gems were from my stash and the calendar is from Hobbycraft.

I would like to enter my calendar into the following challenges also,

My Mums Craft Shop - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Tied Bows
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Thats it from me tonight. I wish you all lots of love and wishes for 2012! I do hope you can pop by and join in our challenge!
