DAILY CALENDAR CHALLENGE #179 – JUNE 28, 2013

It’s amazing what a good night’s sleep can do to increase your mental awareness! I answered all my questions about the last three challenges of 30-Days Of Creativity, I figured out how to fold a frog (but not inflate it), I solved all of today’s puzzles but just looking at them and I FEEL GOOD!

#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – FROGDSCF0285This was a very complicated fold, and while it is not perfect … it does look like a FROG.DSCF0289

However, as you can see, I did not inflate my frog by blowing up his … er … his frog bottom. I person could get lip warts that way!

#2 THE MENSA PUZZLE CALENDAR – THE NAME’S THE SAMEDSCF0287FANTASTIC! I was able to discover all of the LAST NAMES in one clue! But I have to confess that I have no trouble in reading backwards. And in name #4, as soon as I looked at it I saw Anne and the third clue name and automatically knew the answer.

#3 THE PAGE-A-DAY PUZZLE CALENDAR – COVER STORYDSCF0286Again, at first glance I swiftly knew the titles of both books and their relationship! Now all I have to do is figure out what I did or ate to have such a great night’s sleep!

And as a bonus, here’s the runner-up photo in this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge:  Companionable

#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – STAND-UP LETTER FOLD
On Project Runway the designers often get the chance to design the print of the fabric with which they will be working. So I designed my own Renee-wrap folding paper for this challenge.DSC07273

And after following the eight simple folding techniques we produce the following easel-backed end result.

It’s easy, once you know where to place your key photo on the to print page. Also the the printed page should be placed with the images upside down and the blank side facing up when you begin the folding process. Just follow these simple photo steps to help you with the folding instruction on the calendar page…
