Hi there! Is is seriously Thursday already!?! I am going to be a happy, happy mom when this month is over, so trust me when I tell you that the X off countdown is on at our house for the end of April. I'm the PTA president for my three kids' Elementary School and our BIG HUGE Annual Carnival is next week... so my nights have been spent making organizational charts, preparing baskets for silent auctions, ordering prizes and food, figuring out games and activities... and the list goes on. While I wish there was a magic snap button to push me past next week, I'll rely on my TE Calendar to show me how many days of torture left until I can de-stress again! :)
Today is our TE Monthly Calendar challenge and as always, I use my FRAME YOUR IMAGINATION STAND to share my monthly calendar. There are lots of fabulous of calendar products available HERE at Taylored Expressions....and we'd love you to play along...Taylor's blog has all the info!
For my April calendar page, I worked with the oh so cute FAITH IN BLOOM set, which is part of the Embracing Grace line at Taylored Expressions. I started by stamping the flowers in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers. I then cut it out with the scallop Spellbinders die and added a circle behind it for a frame. I used some ribbon from an old Project Pantry kit and added some BUTTONS, attaching everything with Foam Tape.
Here is a close up and you can also see I added a couple of Multi-color Twinkles for a little splash of shiny! :)
