A fun Pinterest project!!

Hi Everyone,
Did ya miss me?!  I have been taking a little break from posting but have been working on lots of fun little projects.  I will post them throughout the week :-)

I saw a fun "do it yourself" calendar using the paint chips from Home Depot.  I loved the look of it but decided I didn't want to rob the home improvement stores blind!!

It is so hard to get a decent picture when it is a floating frame :-/  Anyways, here is how I put it all together!

~ 16x20 Floating frame from JoAnn's (on clearance for $5!!)
~ 35  2"x2" pieces of cardstock (whatever colors you like)
~ Etch vinyl
~ 2 other vinyl colors
~ I used my silhouette for the note sections on the right and for the days of the week

I adhered the squares on the back piece of glass using acid free tape runner for my ATG gun.  I cut the Month, Don't forget,  and Live Laugh Love on my silhouette onto my etched vinyl.  The note frames on the right are also from the silhouette store and I cut them on vinyl that I bought at JoAnns.  The days of the week are made using the print and cut feature on the Silhouette and they just happened to match the colors I chose for my calendar.

I placed the top piece of glass over it and put it back in the frame.  The best part is I can write directly on the glass with whiteboard markers and change it from month to month.  I am heading to the store tomorrow for some fun marker colors!  My husband loves the calendar and has already been putting meetings on it so we all know what everyone is doing :-)

I also have to share this delicious pinterest recipe I made for lunch!!

Pizza Grilled Cheese!!

Oh my goodness!! This is absolutely delicious!!  You put some mozzarella cheese and pepperoni in between buttered bread and grill away!!  The best part is, there are lots of different combinations.  I served it up with a little side of pizza sauce and it was so yummy!!!

I love the calendar!! I have some white board vinyl that I've been waiting for the perfect project to use it for. Thanks for the inspiration! Looks like I know what I'll be doing today... off to hunt for the perfect frame!
