I thought this was such a fantastic idea, I didnt buy a calendar this year which has been frustrating, I have my diary but this allows you to see the whole month mapped out.
I decided to do a photo collage for the background, as I had all these doubles.
I also used the transluscent paper idea (suggested by Katia, in her original). I used white vellum which I had from my scrapbooking colelction. I think the vellum worked really well as you can still see the photos behind.
Hope you like =D
