All Year Round Blog Hop

Hello friends and welcome to your April stop on the All Year Round Blog Hop featuring the wonderful calendar set from Clear Dollar Stamps!  If you came here from Lisa's blog you are right on track.  If you are just stopping in here why don't you head on over to the Clear Dollar Stamps blog to start at the beginning?

When I first saw these calendar pages I knew I wanted to work on a 6x6 calendar using the cute images from CDS.  For April we have a cute bunny that I paired with some lovely paper from the Sweetly Smitten patterned paper pack from Sassafras.  When I do pages like this I just Google 6x6 scrapbook page layouts and choose one that fits my main image well.  The numbers at the bottom are made from kraft thickers that I just inked with a Bermuda Bay ink pad.  A little pink on the bunny with an outline in blue and tahdah!

Alright, I'm sure you want to continue on the blog hop so head on over to Jan's blog to see her cute calendar project!

Thought of the day:  I love that random memories that no matter where I am in my life they make me smile.
