A Wee Christmas Planner

The theme today at As You Like It Challenge is to case your favourite designer.  I can't remember if I picked this theme or not now, but either way, I found it really hard just to decide who was my favourite designer.   I have well over 100 blogs that I follow regularly in my 'inspiration' reading list, many who I've followed for several years because I love their style and they never fail to amaze me with their creativity.

Selecting just one for today's project was nearly impossible, and took me just as long as making the actual project, but after a lot of pondering, Dena Concienne is the person I've chosen to case.  I think what snagged it was a Christmas Planner that she made recently, which was something that I wanted to make as soon as I saw it.

However it was not just the planner that I love about Dena's work;  her colouring is something I've also admired for a long time, and I've watched her watercolour painting video several times to try to improve my DI painting.

The planner that I've made is not watercoloured, but it does follow her layout and design.  So today's project is a Christmas Planner, inspired by Dena.  Thanks hun.

Wow Annette, This Planner is adorable, what a lot of work, it is delightful.
The green and white papers used are lovely, inside it looks fab, what a great idea, I am always using bits of paper for my lists so this would be so useful.
