Hi there,
Today's post is for my Monthly Calendar Challenge for April. 
The theme for April is Easter.
I totally enjoyed creating these calendar's and I love the finished projects.  The first one is themed on the spiritual significance of Easter. I wanted to create a soft and elegant design.

I have decided to try a different Link system, it actually shows a picture of your calendar, and works much the same as Mr. Linky. 
Thanks for taking a peek, let me know if you like them.  If you like the calendars and would like to have a go, I would love for you to join in my monthly challenge. You can find the details here.
