The Divas are excited and ready to get back into another year of FUN challenges! We hope that you are ready as well!

*Welcome to the first Saturday Spotlight challenge of the 2010 NEW YEAR!*

For this week's challenge.....

The Spotlight Divas would like to challenge you to go CRAZY with calendars! Whether you decided to make a coaster calendar, a calendar notebook, an easel card with a miniature calendar, tear up your old 2009 calendar for some collage background pieces or get out your calendar stamps/images and just use one month for inspiration....we would love to see you get into the calendar craze with us! Don't have a calendar? Here's a link you can use to print off any or all months of 2010: Click Here! (Check out the Spotlight Diva inspiration on the blog!)

My calendar project is made to be mounted on a 4" x 4" chipboard coaster (2010 coaster calendar template by Cat HERE). I hosted a swap on SplitCoastStampers where we created a 2009 House Mouse version and was very sad to see the last month of it, so I decided to continue the project for 2010.

Not only does it qualify for the Calendar Craze challenge, but also fits the bill for these challenges:

**Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge #12: New Beginnings. Babies and puppies are definitely new beginnings, and celebrating the New Year is my favorite way to clear the slate and start with a fresh New Year. This image is actually free, available for download to all of the Digital Pencil group members on Papercraft Planet.

**Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #26, a fun sketch, perfect for framing Baby Bella and Bronte.

**Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #34, a wonderful oval element for the calendar and the prima converted into snowflakes for the winter theme.

For our Spotlight sponsor this week we have...
