March Calendar pages

It's the 8th of the month and 
I've just finished my
March calendar pages as part of the 
organised by the fab Kate Crane.

It was a blessed relief to be able
to use some Spring like colours
after the drab winter months.
The image of the bird amongst the 
cherry blossom is from the wonderful
Graphics fairy
(button on left hand sidebar).
There are a few days that had better
be uneventful because there's no room
to write about them!

The 'day squares' are cut out of disposable 
place mats bought from IKEA many years ago.
Made of thick paper with petals within,
it has the look of falling blossom.
I could never quite bring myself to put them 
out for BBQ sauce to be dripped over,
but thought they were perfect for this :o)

I'll try and visit as many of the other
Calendar Girls as I can 
but you know what it's like.......
