March Calendar

Hi Everyone, Happy Friday, this is Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room for my turn to design. Thank you for dropping by. Thank you Sheila for having me again.
I've had Designer's Calendar for so long and have not used it yet, I was wracking my brain on what to make and decided that I would make a calendar.
I went by my house calendar to mark special dates, isn't it funny how all calendars have different things with the exception of the major holidays?

Here is the frame.

On March 4th there is a new moon, I also added a handmade crocheted flower that I got from a sweet blogger's grandmother, isn't it so cute, (she did a wonderful job on them), I also added a button with twine.

the 9th is Ash Wednesday

the 12th, the Girls Scouts were founded in 1912 so I cut out a circle and put brown dots to resemble a chocolate chip cookie

the 13th, we change the clocks, spring ahead, YAY

the 17th is St. Patrick's Day

the 19th is a full moon so I added a clear stone

I cut out the phrase in dark green and white, then glimmer misted it lime green and just added a little ribbon
the green flower started off as a cream colored die cut, I first sprayed it with water to make it pliable, then patted it with a paper towel so it was just damp, used a stylus to roll it up into the flower, glued the bottom and sprayed it with glimmer mist, then glued a pearl in the middle, isn't it pretty? When it dries, it's stiff and almost resembles the feel of wood. I also added little gems, self adhesive heart stickers and a button to the calendar.

Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your visits and comments ;) Thank you again Sheila.
