Lets Make a Date

It's the end of January already. Can you believe it?
It's also Thursday.  That means it's time for a new Dare To Be Sassy Thursday Challenge (#214) at Sassy Studio Designs.  This week the challenge is "Make your image Pop" (Use pop dots to "pop" your image up).  This was a pretty easy challenge for me since I usually use foam squares to "pop" up my images.  So I thought I'd make something other than a card this time.

I made a desk calender.

Stuff I Used:
Image-Powder Puff Sassy digital image by Sassy Studio Designs
Colored with Copics
Skin-E00, E11
Lips-R20, R22
Eyes-B21, B24
Hair-E41, E43, E44
Uniform/shoes-Y13, Y15, C3, C5, C7, W1, W3
Cardstock-Recollections Jewel pack and black
Background-Computer generated
Calender-Computer generated
I've included the calenders as PDFs for your use.  Download January thru June here  and July thru December here  Each month will be 4" wide x 3 1/2" high.  I printed the calenders on cardstock. Then I cut out each month. (1/4" margin on each side and 1/2" margin at the top)  I used PVA adhesive to join the months at the top.
I popped up my image on homemade black foam squares.  Since I pop up all my images, I make my own colored foam squares.  I use Foamies sheets and cut it into 2 1/4" strips.  Then run it through my 2 1/2" XYRON twice. (once on each side)

Hopefully you'll create something and join us this week.

Thanx for looking and please comment.
