"Be Aware" Desk Calendar Freebie

Happy weekend! It's Nikki here with a hybrid printable freebie for you using Wendy's new Be Aware kit, alphas, and words arts. I love having a small calendar next to my computer, and what's better than a little bit (or a lot!) of pink and a little daily reminder to love and support all the "girls" in our lives! :)

The download includes 13 months, from Oct. 2011 through Oct. 2012. They are sized to print perfectly on 4x6 photo paper, so you can print at home or (do what I did and) send them off to a handy-dandy one-hour photo counter. Even non-digi-scrappers will likely feel comfortable with printing some basic photo-sized prints, so be sure to tell all the important women in your life to come visit this blog and download a calendar for themselves!

I wanted mine to prop up in my bent-antique-fork holder, so I simply rounded all the corners (not necessary, of course!) and adhered the prints back-to-back on gray or pink cardstock, cut to 6.25x4.25 inches. A small tabletop easel would work as well, or use the pages one month at a time tacked to a bulletin board or magnet-ed onto your 'frige. You might want to punch a hole in a corner or on one side of the prints and make a mini book, or even add photos of your favorite memorable women for a year of wonderful reminders.

And don't forget to circle some important dates... like your annual mammogram, and monthly self-checks.

Enjoy the calendar and have a wonderful weekend!
