April Journal Page

April 2011
(Click on a butterfly to see the details!)

When I posted my completed March calendar, you knew that the April post wouldn't be very far behind. You tell that I'm anticipating warmer weather and sunshine by my color choices on this month's spread.

Ohhhh . . . and if you hadn't noticed, my April contains an extra day. I started April 1st on a Thursday -- not Friday. Ooops!!! I think I'm trying to get back all of the extra hours we've lost from moving the clocks ahead a few weeks ago. Since this little square is glued down well, I'll have to be inventive with an artistic solution. Wish me luck!

May your day be blessed with luck and sunshine!

Credits: Thanks to Tumble Fish Studio-Etsy for the cat, mushroom and heart, to Dover Publications for the butterflies and bird, and to Land of Nod the little girl, her hat, the jeweled flowers. Winged puppy in a cup and flowers from Pringle Hill Studio. Days of the week were snipped from an old calendar.

Yes - I can see the spring has sprung out of your heart and onto the page Terri! And what fun to read you March calendar - I felt a bit awkward though - like I was snooping :0)
Hope you are ok after the ultrasound!

Terri - I'm sue you will resolve the extra square predicament in a wonderfully artistic fashion. I've gone a little off track this month too. I staggered my squares and still put the days of the week linear across the top! Being digi I can soon remove them though.
Stunning beautiful page as always Terri and here's to warmer weather.

I noticed the extra day, and was going to tell you, but you saw it yourself already :D

For some reason, I thought I had already seen this spread, but obviously I had not. I was surprised when I saw that you had an extra day. Sounds like what I did the first month, only mine was a full week. I'm sure your already have the perfect solution for the problem. It will be fun to see what you do at the end of the month.
