    I am preparing ahead of time LOs for a month-in-review for 2014. Love this example Shelly J has done. I may use this as my basic sketch for the year. I can see where it would be easy to add embellishments appropriate to each month. Thanks for showing us this. I now have it pinned to a Pinterest board (love that Pinterest) for reference.
