Ah, day 2 of the insanity! I realized I'm going to have to finish *all* the toppers by tomorrow night so that I have enough time on Friday morning (before heading to Ron's parents') to personalize the bottom part of the calendar (birthdays etc, with photos in the squares). Since we're going to be at my mom's for Thanksgiving tomorrow, it's going to be TIGHT! I have so much to do today!
No birthdays or anything like that in July. So I used a couple photos of her daughters... I think she'll like that.

(If you're thinking of doing something similar and you don't want to reinvent the wheel,
I recommend Layer Works No. 121 which I basically copied for this project.)
