DZ Doodles DT Post - All About Storage!

Today we bring you a NEW challenge for the NEW year! The challenge we bring to you today is all about storage. Let's get organized it's a new year! So make something for your desk for example: a pencil holder, calendar, post it note holder or a notebook...anything really that you can use for storage. You can use the freebie image here or any another DZ Doodles image to enter this challenge. You have until Tuesday Jan. 18th at 12am. The winner will be posted on Thursday, Jan. 20th. Winner will win one free image of their choice from the DZ Doodles store!





Here's what I came up with.  It's a desktop calendar using the super adorable "Chloe".  Of course this one was inspired by my super cool, super fun PCP Secret Pal.  I used my prisma's to color her.  I'm still learning to shade and use multiple colors. Any advice is freely taken!  The flowers and ribbons were from one of my Swirly kits.  The papers were from that awesome paper pad by Me and My Big Ideas hubby got me for xmas.  My images were 3 X 3 1/2 so II made my calendar to fit and it turned out to be 5X7.  You could also use this for a post-it holder.  It's a great little gift for a friend.


I would like to welcome all my new followers that are here via Feline Playful, "Give a comment, Get a comment".  I've had such a great time going around and visiting all of you and seeing your wonderful blogs.  You are such talented ladies and I'm definitely looking forward to all you have to share in the coming year.  I can't wait to see what friendships blossom from this!
