Desk Calendar

I saw this adorable idea on a Zutter Blog Hop and just had to make my own! This is the inspiration:


 

And here is my version:

I painted the frame (previously green) with a paint sample that I had in my stash. The calendar sheets and month stamps are from Papertrey Ink. The flowers are Prima and were sprayed with Glimmer Mist. All of the paper is from my scrap drawers, and the embellishments are from my stash. Most of them I have had for years and never used.

Currently the calendar is adhered to the frame with velcro, but I do not want to tear off the previous months so I am trying to figure out another way to attach the spiral to the frame. Any suggestions? Here are a couple more pages...

This is super cute! Good job! I'll keep an eye out for something else you could use to attach your calendar.
