April Calendar Girls' Blog Hop

Welcome to our April Calendar Girls' Blog Hop. Its absolutely amazing when you do a google search the interesting facts you may find. Such a find is special and unique occasions throughout the year!!! These unique holidays are our inspiration. As Neil Sedaka sang in his song "Calendar Girls" - "April, you're the Easter bunny when you smile". Yes, I know that Easter came early this year, in March actually, but Neil Sedaka sings with April as the Easter Bunny ...... can't blame the lyrics!!

The hop starts with the beautiful and very talented Kimberly at http://scrappingrookie.blogspot.com. The entire line-up is available just in case you get bogged down with all the holidaze and craziness!!!!

For my first day I chose National Peanut Butter and Jelly day ;0)

I used the Lite Fast Food Cartridge with a few alterations to create the sandwich and jars. all the papers are from my scrap file Trying to use up some of my scraps.
For my second day I chose Draw a picture of a bird day and this is my crude attempt (LOL) at drawing a picture of an Owl One of my 2  favorite birds.

I also was trying to create a shape card for National Pretzel Day (One of my all time favorite foods) Well the shape card fizzled and I am left with the topper also cut from the Fast Food Cartridge.


The Stamping Chef is our wonderful sponsor for today's blog hop and has designed two of the images that have been used in today's hop. She is offering 3 of her wonderful designs, winner's choice to one lucky blog hopper that responds on each of the Calendar Girls along with her facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/TSCRecipes/, commenting that you hopped with the Calendar Girls.

Lynne will be going through her stash and sending one lucky winner a surprise package to someone that remarks and gives bloggie love on each of the participants.

Your next stop along the way of the calendar is Vicky . Thanks for stopping by and mark your calendar again next month to see what Holidays to Celebrate on May 11, 2013, for the next Calendar Girls Blog Hop!
Hope you are enjoying the hop and getting lost of great ideas!!
Big Blog Hugs, Janet
