March Calendar Challenge

Well, I am rather late with posting my calendar for this month, but I couldn't do it before today. I am not happy with it, as I have stuck the days on all wonky. I didn't intend to put them in straight rows, but neither did I intend them to be all at different angles! And my glue stick didn't help. I bought a no-name one from the local supermarket, and it was not only no-name, but no-stick, no-use and no-good. On Monday I will buy a decent one!

I painted the background in blues and greens, to give me some spring feelings, and did some stamping and embossing and some doodling before putting on the days. Next week I will be back home, and hopefully able to cut and stick straight again! I am linking up to the *Kathryn Wheel*




Okay, that's all for today. Have a good Sunday, take care, and thanks for dropping in!
