April Calendar

So a few posts ago I mentioned I went to a scrapbook store when we had our taxes done. While I was there they had these cute little calendar cases, and mini calendars made up that were just adorable! I computer generated the calendar, added a little chocolate bunny clip art under Easter Day, and printed it on light yellow cardstock. I punched out the bottom lavendar portion and stamped Happy Easter using my stamp a ma jig. I colored my focal image with copic markers, punched it out with my circle punch, and layered it with the scallop circle that I pierced. I wanted to add some ribbon so I used the stay put bow to attach some tiny lavendar ribbon. This was a fun project to make. The completed calendar measures about 2 1/8 x 3 1/2. I will have to start thinking about May!

Thanks for stopping by!
