It's Friday Night......


.... and I am livin' it up! Nope, not even close. I'm hanging with my sweet - but has terrible taste in movies - daughter watching Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure. I had to escape all the pink bling and bad acting so here I am. Livy is beside me and keeps muttering things like " Ah, I looooove that dress" or "I'm so getting a dog like that when I'm a teenager." I don't think she even noticed that I picked up my laptop.
So, quickly, I've made a calendar. Started out based on an idea I saw once in PaperCrafts or maybe Scrapbooks Etc magazine using an old CD case. All the CD cases that I have are too thin so I switched up the design.
This is the front.



Then it opens up, the same way a card would, and becomes a calendar. The first side is very simple and has only a clothes pin to hold the month sheet, and the back has a pocket to hold the rest of the months.





All the stickers and papers are from "Fly A Kite" by October Afternoon. I bought the kit for $30 at a scrapbooking store and I've gotten so much use out of it.
For these challenges -

Thanks for looking,
Farrah

Well, I'm not swinging from any chandeliers, either (we had Snow White on earlier--hee hee). But I'm so glad I saw your post. Holy cow, Farrah. You are AMAZING! Love the front, love the calendar pages, and I love the whole idea.
