    Here are August and September calendr pages. The August page has a picture ofour  Mr. Mooch. I used the Carolina Script from Creative Fabrica for the letter S and for the rest  of the letters I used the Harrington font I have on my computer. Thank you Carole for the tip to add a softened and feathered image to the extra space, I had fun with that on both the July and and August page.

    For the September page I used a picture of our Cinnamon. Both cats have crossed the Rainbow bridge a few years ago, but they will always be in our heart. I used the Carolina font again for the letter S and finished with the Black Chancery which  I have on my computer. The Autumn leaves are from Digital Scrapbook. I have not had time yet to start the cover page, am working on the next few pages. After that I will start on the cover.

    Thanks Carole for the advice on the red color. I toned it down a bit to pick up the the color of the flowers better. Here is my updated June Calendar page. Do I need to tone it down some more?

    The end of the challenge, but not the end to updating all my pages.  Here is my cover.

    Thank you Cassel!  This challenge was fun and challenging.

    Amazing work, everybody!

    I’m way behind; just starting Day 3. I probably knew and forgot that you could double click on a text layer to open up the text tool. I love re-finding Tips & Tricks! Thanks, Carole.

    Ann, you should almost send that overview to the producers of the show. Who knows if they would be interested in doing something like that?

    Carole: There are official HBO Downton Abbey calendars available. I had one myself last year. This is totally unofficial with “fan-fiction” included. I got most of my material from the DA fan pages on Facebook.

    I think I have everything now. I did some extras too.

    Here are my covers. The green cover is a template I found in my stash…but don’t know where I got it.

    I did two pages for February. I decided to use a flower theme but I love the photo of the cardinal…there’s a heart on the branch…perfect for February. Cardinal photo taken in Kentucky. Flower photo (I don’t know what it is called) taken in Tennessee.

    Another Virginia photo. I love all azaleas. My first job was selling azaleas on the side of the road. My parents ran a small Mom and Pop nursery from our backyard. Over the years I made enough $$$ to pay for my high school senior trip and my first year of college.

    Another month with 2 pages. I thought the turkey photo very appropriate for a Virginia Thanksgiving. Photo taken in my back yard. The Blue-eyed Grass is a new one for me. It is a wild flower and was growing in my yard this summer. I dug some of it and have it in pots, hoping it will survive the winter and I can plant it in the spring. We have had a couple of light frosts so I have it protected.

    The Tennessee photos were taken at  the Gaylord Opryland hotel (resort and convention center). They decorate inside and out for Christmas. Friends and I traveled to Tennessee just to see the decorations. We were not disappointed. We spent hours walking the lobby (huge) and taking photos and then went outdoors to walk around all the outdoor decorations. The lobby has a river running thru it that contains water from all the famous rivers from all parts of the US, and from some rivers from parts of the world. I would loved to have stayed there but it was $300+ per room. It is open to the public so while we did not stay there, we sure did enjoy the gardens. If you get a chance to see it…do.

    Here is my October 2022 page. Only 2 more to go and the cover. The Picture is from a Halloween graphic I found on Google some time ago.  As I was working on it, Natasha wanted to be included. So, why not, I thought let’s see what we can do. Then I used another picture of her to place in the extra space on the left. Instead of the rectangle, I used the eclipse feathered a bit and adjusted brightness and contrast. I used the Carolina font again for the letter O and BellMT for the rest.

    Thank you Pirkko. A friend of mine painted Mr. Mooch from a picture I had taken of him. He always loved to be photographed and would pose for me.

    There is so much work done by everybody and by far to much to comment individual, but it is again a great succes this calendar challenge. Well done to all!

    For me it’s all coming together now and here are the first pages of two calendars, I’m working parallel now because some of the embellishments are the same.

    The first 3 are for the calendar of my village Etten-Leur with embellishments fitting for the photo or the time of the year. I make a birthday calendar with the same photos and backgrounds but with lines to write the birthdays on. I’ll do those when all the rest is finished, because that’s easy to make.

    The second 2 are of the wild flowers I have often featured here in other projects. That calendar will go to Switzerland. To those of you who understand German, I know that I should have used capitals in my text, but in Switzerland they are neglecting that themselves, so I feel free to do the same. March will follow later.

    Here are my calendar pages for November and December 2022. I also updated my May page by changing the graphic in the extra space on the left. I am working on my cover page and should have that ready by tomorrow. I am sorry I am a bit late, but things have been very busy at work which does not give me a lot of time to play with PSP. Everyone has done such a wonderful job creating these calendars and I love looking at all the pages.. Thank you Carole for making all this possible for us.
