Did I mention how much I love my Imagine? Just kidding, I know I say it all the time, but I do love this machine!

To make this calendar, I first printed a 12x12 sheet from the Blossom cartridge. I then went into CCR and made the calendar from Designer's calendar. The days of the week and numbers are from cricut classic font. The days are at .5" I pushed them together some to fit over the column, the numbers at .3" then filled in with black. I then put the printed paper back in the Imagine and did a print only of the calendar. I then cut the croc at 2.5" from crocs rule the tulips at 2" from walk in my garden. I added glossy accents as rain drops on and around the croc and the umbrella, I also added some to the tulips. I drew in the crocs teeth with a white gel pen the ones that cut out were way to small to work with. I got the frame from Hobby Lobby, had to trim about an 1/8" off two sides of the paper to get it to fit the frame. Sorry about the reflection on the glass. Then you can write on this with a dry erase marker. I got the idea for this from Kerry.
