May Calendar Page

Stamps: Ava Flowers
Paper:  So Saffron, Pretty in Pink CS & DP
Ink:  Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Blush blossom, Lavender Lace
Accessories:  Rose Red Ribbon, Pretty in Pink Brads, Beautiful Wings Embosslet, Microsoft Excel

I was so inspired by my friend Monique's calendar page last month that I knew I wanted to join in the fun.   This is the first calendar page I've ever done.  I thought it was only fitting to put this cute little Ava with her flowers in the hope that all those April Showers we got will bring May Flowers (and a warm up).  We still have temps in the 50 degree Celsius range here in Michigan.

Here's a close up of just the calendar page. 

The calendar I used is just a Microsoft Excel calendar template.  Anyone who knows me will tell you that playing around in Excel is one of my favorite things to do.  So this calendar page is pretty much a combination of two of my favorite things.  I shaded the cells in this calendar using Stampin' Up color codes to Pretty in Pink and the numbers, text, and borders are colored Chocolate Chip.

I'm so happy to join these talented ladies for this month's calendar page inspiration.  Be sure to check out their blogs for some fabulous calendar pages:

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my calendar page.
