Calendar for a non crafting friend

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all warm, dry and well...hugs
I tried uploading these yesterday but Blogger decided he didn't want to co-operate. This is my second attempt today cuz I have just pressed a wrong button and deleted it all. Talk about "senior moments"  LOL.
I made this calendar for a friend who doesn't know anything about crafting, she is an avid genealogist who sits for many hours a day transcribing parish records before they deteriorate any more and are lost forever.
Without more ado, here are the first 4 pages. The calendar is A4.

The saga continues, I just published without the pics, whatever next LOL.
I created the pages in MS Publisher using one of the templates, and added my own photographs. Each photograph was taken in the month it represents. 
I have to scan the rest of the pages in to save them as jpegs. My Publisher software is so ancient (2000) it doesn't allow me to save as jpegs and the original pages are far too large to upload (nearly 20 megabutes each) !

This is beautiful Jackie... your friend will treasure it and what a great way to use your photos!!

Those crocuses were early in February last year... but the poor plants don't know what to do when! We had daff leaves poking through the soil last month here!! Think they're now sorry they bothered... hehe!
