Kevin Rye posted his Mini 7-segment clock in the project log forum:

I finally got in my OSH Park PCBs for my mini 7-segment clock. It’s using the DP5050 PCB layout. I used the SparkFun 7-seg display, but unfortunately, they screwed up the pinouts on the footprint and pins 10 and 12 are pin-swapped. I had to jumper the pins on the back to get the colon to work.
