Aprils Calendar Page

Hello Ladies, Hope you are all well thank you for popping along to my blog today. I am still working my way through the pages for the calendar for work so here is April's page :) I am entering this in to a few challenges. I have made it a lovey dovey one as April is my first wedding anniversary, so excited we are going back to the hotel we whent to in Egypt for our Honeymoon, bring on March 26th thats all I can say lol

I made this page using the sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges which is shown below. Lovely and simple which is great for the calendar pages as I had found myself adding too much detail and ending up having pages sticking out too far.






Here is what I made using this sketch;




The image is of course a Greeting farm one, I love these especially this cake topper one can't wait till I can get my hands on some more - this image was sent to me in a swap ages ago.
I coloured the image using copic markers and added stickles to the dress for a bit of shimmer.
The flower and brad are from my stash, as is the red paper which I used to mount everything on.

I am also entering this into te folllowing challenges;

Incy Wincy designs - use your favourite colouring medium (I used copics)
There's magic in the air - tons of love - Edit - I didnt use the mage provided so hopefull will be back with a new entry sorry :)
Creative Belli Challenge - Sparkle - i added glitter to the dress

Hi Amanda!
Your page for April is very stylish - I think you might want to go back and check the TMITA challenge though, as to enter you would need to follow the challenge and add the image Nina provides.
