Valentines Calendar!!!

Hello everyone,
I know I've been doing a lot of Valentines projects but I just can't help myself!  I LOVE all the colors  LOL!! I also want to thank everyone that stopped by my sister’s blog to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and decided to follow her blog!!!  She was so surprise and appreciated all your comments!!!  Today I have a frame that I purchased at the dollar store  and decided to make a calendar that I can change the months and redecorate the frame which I know I will have a lot of fun!!  The calendar has February's Month since Valentines is around the corner.  I'm working on making the rest of the months.  The embellishments that I made have Velcro on the back for easy removing or adding I hope you ladies like it. I should of put another mat behind the Vanilla card stock to give it more of a border, but I had already glued it down:(   I had a blast making it and excited to show it to you all.  Thank you for stopping by and enjoy!!!Entering the Thursday Throwback & Flaunt it Fridays Challenges.

  6. so pretty! i like how you can change out the decor for the months. Very nice. Does Stampin Up have circle punches? I bought the one they sell at Michaels (the big bulky ones) and it doesnt even cut all of the way through. I have to use my xacto knife to finish the job lol. Let me know when you get a chance :)
