April Showers

Good morning.  Hope everyone survived Black Friday.  I didn't do any shopping at all.  I'm either giving gift cards or money, or making my gifts.  My DH and I aren't going to givie each other gifts, because I gift to each other is a vacation in Fl.   We are leaving Dec 26th or 27th and will be staying at a friends house in Okeechobee.  We are planning on staying a month if things work out.

This week over on the LASTING MEMORIES blog challenge, the challenge is "NAKED LO'S".
Now if your wondering what that means head on over to the blog site and see for yourself what that means.  Here is the link for the blog site.

I've been working on two 12x12 2013 calenders.  One will be going to my neice for her birthday. Each page has two picture mats that she will be able to take a picture of the month and just put the pictures on. I just finished with  the month of April. When I saw the challenge this week I thought all my calender pages are NAKED.  I finished this page last nite because I knew I had to get this done and shipped before her birthday which is DEC 22.  I still have to do the days and  numbers on the calender grids, but that is the easy part.

The pattern paper came from a fellow crafter. Terri sent me some paper and this was in it.  When I saw this paper I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.  Its perfect for my April page for the one calender.  I'm going to show one of two on the challenge and will have the other posted below with what I used on the other page.
The cricut cuts are from Teddy Bear Parade cartridge.  My fellow crafter Brenda  Friends Craftin' with Friends  purchased this cart for me because our Wal-mart didn't have it.  Thank you Brenda.
This cart has so many cute cuts on it. Kids  teens and even grownups ( kids at heart) like this cart.  You can use it for any and all occasions.  If you get a chance to get this cart you won't go wrong.
The raincoats on the bears is pattern paper from The Studio paper from HL.

Thanks for looking and have a great week.

Here is the page for the 2nd calender that I'm doing.
