a FUNNY story and a 3D project share....

So I have a funny story to share with you, a prelude to my 3D share today. 

A while back I saw this gorgeous 3D calendar online made by another Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I loved it so much that I contacted her and asked her how she made it, because I wanted to make one for myself. 

So within just a few hours Debbie had responded back to my email with instructions on how she had made hers.  

Well, it took me a while but in  late January I made mine- oh I was so very proud of my handmade calendar!  I had it proudly displayed on my computer desk for all to see.  

Then at the end of January, as I was writing my monthly newsletter, I grabbed my calendar to get the dates for my classes....and things just were not working out.  Something was wrong.  I grabbed my daytime and I was a day off in everything....what was going on??? 

Then I noticed something....like a fool I had printed and oh so carefully trimmed out each month precisely...of a 2013 calendar!  DUH!!!!!  no wonder things were not working out!!

Well I sure felt stupid!  And this calendar had been on my desk for all to see for at least two weeks!  Did I every feel stupid. 

So now  that I am over it....and have replaced the 2013 calendar with a corrected 2014 calendar, I can now share some photos with you. 
 The colored image is from the stamp set For The Birds in the annual catalog. I added a few birds.
This is the side view

And here is the back view.  I decided to use mini brads to attach my calendar, that way next year I can just change out the calendar and still use the base.
