Are any of your layers parented to anything?
Why do you have Transform and Basic 3D effects applied (and what layer are they applied to)? Usually it'd make more sense to just work with the transformation values rather than adding an effect to the layer. I'd remove those if I were you.
At this point I was just trying to see if I could figure out how to get the orientation/rotation back to a flat surface with the effects. They are applied to the 2D layer. Those I'll remove, but the 2D and 3D layers were parented to a null, (I removed them assuming maybe that was my issue, and I could at least start over once I got the image to lay flat again) and I also had the 2D layer parented to the 3D layer.

Is the layer you are having problems with Layer 10 [Anbel_New.png]?
If so, select the layer press the r key to reveal rotation and orientation properties for the 3D layer, or the u Key twice to reveal all modified properties of the layer. Now look for keyframes and values that are not set to their default positions (which is why I usually press the U key twice).
If orientation is fouled select orientation in the time line, right click and choose Reset.
If that does not solve your problem then we need to have a lot more information.
I was actually able to figure it out. Once I reset the orientation, it still defaulted to an angle. I auto oriented the layer to the camera and it defaulted to the centered flat that I was looking for. I just wish I hadn't deleted all my work before figuring that out ha.
Thanks for the help!

probably because it was parented
When you have problems with parented layers step one is to park the CTI on a frame an not move it. Step 2, remove the parenting. Step 3, fix the orientation, and the last step is to re-do the parenting.
In some specific combinations of movements, expressions, parenting and orientation you will have to dig deeper to solve orientation problems, but most of the time the remove parent, fix, add the parent, will fix the problem.
