April Showers bring August Fruit

Well I am back! I had a blast this weekend..... Thanks Alex!! Things got a lot better after my Friday night slump. I ended up getting way more than I thought done.

Now for a "peep show"!
These ATC's are for the Calendar ATC Swap (click on it ...hurry there are only 2 spots left!!)on SCS . For my 2 spots this is what I came up with......


First April.......
I started out with this great idea to use my cricut and cut little bunnies with eggs. So I get all 13 bunnies cut and each bunny has 7 eggs so I cut each egg different....... when a little birdie pops up and says "you know that easter is sometimes in March right" Well there I am all oh crap.... up to my neck in eggs and bunnies.

So then I am well what April so of course I think 'April showers bring May flowers.". I had this great SU! umbrella stamp and then stitched the rain drops on (still thinking of stickeling in the drops). The ATC is silver bazzil bling paper and the calendar back ground is a mat stack with little swirls on it.



Now August.......
After looking a some great 6x6 calendar pages Alex had I got inspired.One had these little apples stamped and made into a border. I thought wow fruit would be something inexpected for this. I used the lime/orange and stamped all over white and punched them out with the small circle punch. The ATC is DCWV dark stack and behind the calendar is glossy white.

I think this was my favorite from this weekend.


Thanks for looking!
