Calendar Into Artwork!

I've been holding on to this calendar for a few years because I love the pictures in it. I wanted to keep them and use them in frames somehow. I've been wanting to redo the wall at the bottom of our stairs in the living room and here's what I came up with. What do you think? Sorry the pics are not that great I was using the digital one and it was dark. xoxo

                                            Before...
My pup Mia is inspecting the calendar and she approves

          I bought my frames at Michael's a 2-pack was $7!

I separated the picture from the calendar part.
                                             One down! 5 to go.
Mapping out the proportions with newspaper...
After! So colorful now :)

That's a wonderful idea! I too recycle calenders and diary art works. And your pup is adorable.

The wall looks great after the new addition.
