March Calendar Challenge

So over on The Kathryn Wheel blog it's already time to upload March's pages. Haven't had a blog long enough to have linked Feb and Jan's pages :-( but will include them on this post.

The challenge is to keep a note everyday of either what you did or where you went leaving a unique look at 2012. The plan is to upload to Kate's blog at the start of the month but as I've only just worked out how to do this it's a little late lol

This month I've used Stampasaurus spray inks, creative workshop templates, acyrlic paints, sakura white gelly roll pen, black sharpie, authentique and my mind's eye paper, forest moss distress ink and the most fantabulous Octopode Factory stamp "March Hare"

I think he just sums up March perfectly, that half sleep recovering from Winter look that most of us get on a Sunday morning lol

So here are my completed Feb pages.

All filled in!! OK truth be known I did forget a couple of days and had to go back later, but I still remembered the important bits lol
On this layout used a lot of ditress inks, acyrlic paint, bitty grunge stamps from Tim Holtz, Alphabet stamps from Studio G, "Just a note.." from Anita's, Swallow from Stampotique and random hearts, flowers and cow stamps that I've had so long I have no idea where they originated from! To finish the paper I used pastel crayons to ground the date squares and coloured in the "Cheshire Cat" from the Octopode Factory with promarkers.

And finally January;

Here I used a lot of blue acrylic paints, snowflake stamps, glimmer mists, doodling and a freebie stamp from Polksdoodles, I forget now which magazine it came with. This one I was much better at remembering to fill in!! Am now going to attempt to link to other blogs! (fingers crossed) :-)


  1. LOVE your journaling and well done you ... side by side pictures definitely worked :0) They do over run slightly on your border ... but you definitely need to know ... its not you ... its me ... the side by side html is only set up for a two column blog ... not three columns like what you have got :0)
