Taylored Expressions Calendar Challenge March

Hi Everybody,

Welcome to the monthly Taylored Expressions Calendar Challenge - where every month members of the design team feature different ways to use all the awesome calendar products in the TE store! This challenge is open to everyone and if you play along - you could win some amazing prizes from Taylored Expressions! 

This month I chose to use Moka April with my Perpetual Occasions Calendar which is perfect for keeping track of monthly anniversaries or birthdays! Decorating the whole calendar is also a great gift to give to someone - it is one calendar product that stays the same year to year and will make organizing birthday gifts, sending out cards much easier. I love Moka April's sweet little bunny ears - and paper pieced her dress and then cut her out.

 I stamped the clouds in the background using the Clouds Border Edge die. The clouds were stamped using Bahama Blue ink not only for Moka April's background but also for  sentiment is from the Spring Cottage stamp set and I die cut the easter eggs using the newly released A Trisket A Tasket die from Taylored Expressions.

Here is a picture of the whole calendar page - I continued sponging the clouds on the whole page and then at the bottom of the page, I added some flowers from the Faith in Bloom stamp set
