Who doesn't love a good scallop? This calendar's simple design allows for the scalloped frame to be the main attraction.

Ok so, I took your suggestions and created this new option A. Part of me couldn't let go of the bar so I added it back but just thinner with a bolder font. Yay? Still nay?

Ok, here is option B with you gals' suggestions. I don't know why but I kind of miss the black bar. I am having trouble finding a typeface that I like with the Northwest that the month is in. I tried the polka dots all the way down but I didn't love it.

I found the black bar kind of distracting - I love how Option B puts the focus on the photo!

I like option b, but I would give some more air between the photo and the month. maybe the photo is too large now or the calendar gets smaller? you are pretty wide to the edges of the page.

I did do a kelly green and dusty blue version. I can upload that later when I get home. There was something about the black + white that was just more sophisticated to me.

I like the frame and dots, but I think the black bar is too heavy and competes with the frame and the type inside is very hard to read. I'd opt for no bar and a simpler typeface for the days of the week, maybe abbreviate them. also thinking the dots could continue behind the whole piece since they're so light. just my two cents.

very sweet! I agree on the black bar - I think it detracts from the image above. You may even be able to make the photo a tiny bit larger and scoot the calendar itself down?

I agree with the other comments, the black bar is pulling my attention away from the photo.
