************Easel Calendar**********

Hello friends,
Is it just me or are the days flying by maybe since I've been 
sooo busy with work and home, but I want this week to pass fast cause I'm super excited about the Expo this coming weekend and I get to meet some of you ladies!!! Now for my super cute easel calendar that I made with the Stampin' Up! Matchbox die.  I can't take credit for this idea, I got it from Becky Roberts  and her wonderful simply tutorial:) The Designer Paper, buttons and stickers I got for FREE from the Sale-A-Bration Promo. The mini calender you can get HERE. All I simply did was die cut the Stampin' Up! #114890 matchbox for the bottom and took a 2" X 7-5/8" strip of Certainly Celery and scored it at 2-5/8", 4-1/4 & 5-1/4 for the top as the easel and it's that simple!! I hope you enjoyed this tiny cute project.  Thank you for stopping by. ***Hugs***
