Deployment Calendar Countdown

So I decided to make a deployment calendar countdown, even though its technically a "count-up". 

This is my first crafty project I have done in...in a long time, so bear with me. Also, I'm trying to get all artsy with my camera. I'm such a LOSERRRRR :)

What you will need:

- Scrapooking paper (I got two kinds, solid and patterns)
- scissors
- single-hole punch
- stickers (lots of 'em!)
- glue
not picture:
- fasteners
- monthly calendars  (I printed mine off of iCal)

I then, sketched out an idea...
a VERY faint idea of what I wanted to make.

Next stage is the cutting, pasting and putting together:

Finally, la pièce de résistance...

the Deployment Calendar Countdown.
