THE perpetual calendar...(lots of photos!)

As promised, I am sharing with you the awesome perpetual calendar I made this past weekend at the Julie Jane Paper Company. The pictures truly don't do the calendar justice. The wood is a cherry wood, but with the black backdrop for the photo, you really can't tell. (Sorry). The instructor had everything pre-cut and ready to go. The only thing I had to worry about was which patterned paper did I want on this particular month or this particular day. LOL! Decisions, decisions!

(This is the back of the calendar - where you store the extra months & days that aren't being used - clever, huh!)

(The month & dates are double-sided. Here is a view of both sides).

I had fun making this calendar. The ribbon, paper flowers & buttons really make the calendar home-spunny (if that is even a word!). You'll see that to the left of the actual date, there is a 4x6 pattern paper. (See, the very first photo). This is where you can put any picture or collage of photos. Like I said before, decisions decisions, because I still haven't decided on which picture to put there!

Hope you have a Terrific Tuesday! I'll be back tomorrow with more to share. In the meantime, head on over to Digi Kitty & take the Monday Challenge!
