2013 Calendar

I'm going to show you my 'birthday' calendar today...well, some of it, as it's not yet finished! I saw the photo frame/holder in Ikea ages ago, and thought that it might make a good calendar...and when I looked closely at the display one, and saw that it had pockets for 12 photos...I just had to get one! The base is perspex, and the little pockets for the photos/months are flexible plastic...the 'windows' are 6x4, so it's a good size too. I'm going to use this to keep track of all of the birthdays I need to send a card - I've circled the dates, and keep a list in my diary with the names on...I made a little one last year, and it worked really well! I'm using all Penny Black images, a whole mixture of papers, and a calendar tab by Anita's. Here's the first installment:

 Image - 'Bubbly' 
Papers - 'Hippity Hoppity' (We R Memory Keepers), 'Madison' (Penny Black) & Unkown (Heidi Grace)
Dies - Nesties Circles & Stars

Image - 'Every Which Way'
Papers - '72 & Sunny' (We R Memory Keepers) & Unkown (Heidi Grace)
Die - 'Puffy Clouds' (Memory Box)

Image - 'Bunny Friends'
Papers - 'Hippty Hoppity' & '72 & Sunny' (We R Memory Keepers)

Hi Helen
I have this Ikea frame. I have had it along time now, and I bought a pack of postcards at the same time (mountains, trees, water etc) and I have them in it. Everytime I polish the fireplace (not as often as I shud!!) I change the photo, they are lovely.
I love what you have done with it, the calender idea is great.
