Hello beautiful blog friends. Thanks for stopping by today.
Well it just dawned on me that I have forgotten to post my April and May Fairy Calendars. Oh My, that's not good. Anyway, here they are. I hope you like them.

I just love designing these calendar pages. For May I used a lot of satin ribbon and Swarovski Crystals. Can you ever have to many sparkles? Nah. I also wanted to add dimension so I printed out another image and cut out the flowers and popped them up with Stampin Dimensionals.

Calendar Recipe
Stamps: Michelle Perkett Studios digi stamp "Willow", Paper Trey Ink "Calendar Basics"
Ink: Early Espresso

I wanted to to capture Spring for April and what better way than with butterflies.
