CHA Week Post 3

Hello again!  Are you impressed by my posting three days in a row?  I am.  :)  Well...welcome to day 3 of my CHA week postings.  Here is a new project I made for CHA, once again using the Collecting Moments collection from Fancy Pants Designs.

This time I altered a wooden date display.

Here are several pictures:

Ok, before I get lots of comments about this...I know it is not the 21st today.  I took these pictures before mailing my projects off and I just didn't get pictures of the right day.  :)  

In order to have the right numbers for all dates, my first block has the numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and my second block has the numbers 0, 1, 2, 7, 8, 9 (the 9 can be turned upside down to make the 6).  

There is a block for each month that can be rotated to the front of the display.  

The envelope on the back holds the rest of the numbers for the year part.  

I really like how it turned out.  Aren't those little clothes pins the cutest?  

Well thanks for stopping by today!  Would love to hear what you think of this.  :)  And come back tomorrow for another new project featuring another new collection from Fancy Pants Designs.  

Have a fantastic day!

I love this idea and I wouldn't have even noticed the date, too busy looking at the gorgeous papers.
