Finally I have been able to upload my calendar photos for April and May. My husband (ie: the resident IT help desk) has now gone to USA for a week on business (don't worry, I gave him a shopping list for Dick Blick's hehehe). The computer is sort of up and running but it takes so much time to load everything again. At the moment I can't print or scan, but I can access the internet. I realised as I went to download the photos of my calendar pages that I couldn't because I didn't have the software reloaded on the computer. Yikes! That is enough to bring me out in a cold sweat while my husband is away!
The moral of the story is MAKE SURE YOU HAVE BACKED UP YOUR FILES ON YOUR PC. These people are playing cat and mouse with the internet security providers and none of us are safe from it.
So, I created this background with lots of colour and splashes and stamped bottle lids and sponged through stencils. In real life it is a riot of colour! I added this quirky stamp by Stampotique and then gave her a hat. I found this old quote 'ne'er cast a clout till May is out'. I have no idea what it means but it seemed appropriate! Let me know if you know what it means :-)
Edit: Thanks to Suzy and Lynne, who have informed me that 'clout' is winter clothing so the saying means keep your winter clothes on till the end of May. OOh I wouldn't dream of taking my vest off yet LOL!
Here are my April pages finished. Why didn't you tell me April only has 30 days? It's too late now! My April 31st entry will also have to appear as the 1st May LOL!!
I'm so happy to know that so many of you are still in the challenge. Right now I'm off to dunk my children in the bath but I'll be blog hopping later to see what you have been up to.
Byeee for now
