April Showers calender page

     Sorry I haven't been around much lately.  Been feeling pretty rotten.  Getting old stinks!  LOL  I've managed to do a little bit of crafting although I haven't felt much like it.
     Today I'm sharing my April calendar page.  I didn't add too many embellishments to this one.  Just let the main image be the focal point.

     I've used "Splash" from Mo's Digital Pencil and merged it with Make It Crafty's "Crooked Picket Fence" and parts of "Daffodil Dell".  For the sky I used chalk to make the clouds and if you look closely you can see my Glossy Accents rain drops.
     Here's my stinky inside photo of the page in the stand.

     Hope you're having a great day and didn't get too many April Fool's jokes pulled on you.
     Be blessed!

Paper--My Mind's Eye "Stella Rose--Gertie", Bazzill, Georgia Pacific, Copic XPress-it Blending card
Stamps--Mo's Digital Pencil "Splash", Make It Crafty "Daffodil Dell" and "Crooked Picket Fence"
Ink--Copics, Sakura white gel pen, Frayed Burlap Distress ink
Tools--EK Success Deco Corner punch
Miscellaneous--Studio Calico wooden birds, Glossy Accents, Inkadinkado Blending chalks, Michaels rhinestones

Why must acquiring wisdom come with such a trade off? LOL We age and get wiser and then we start falling apart. It makes getting around to tell everyone how smart we are now, SO much more difficult! ;)
Your April showers page is beautiful Tracy. The realism of the raindrops made me smile from ear to ear.
So sorry you're feeling like crap. I continue to think and pray for you.
