April Calendar

When I worked on the layers of this month, I was feeling heavy and overwhelmed with winter's reoccurring weight. I wanted light, I wanted spring and it's glorious bright sunny colors, and I needed simple and open spaces. This is what sprung from me. It's not my favorite, but there are some things about it I really like...so, here it is. April, please remember to bring us sun and warmth and some daffodils and blue skies and bunnies.



Gosh, I do love buttons...
Happy April everyone.

Ooh this is really different - I love it! The burttons are a really unusual touch and they look fab. Also loving your background and the hand drawn shapes for each day. Well done for keeping up with the challenge so far :-)
