Calendar journal - very, very late!

Well, OK! I've been away and I did make this while still at the caravan, started to fill it in then had a 'Doh!' moment when I realised I hadn't posted it or entered in the challenge at lovely Kate's blog - The Kathryn Wheel! So here, just for the record is  a started April and a finished March!!
Just a bit of distress ink and water smooshed around, a stencil made from a card that I bought on a visit to Acorn bank last week, it's a beautiful laser cut card that I coated in Glue and Seal before dabbing ink through it. The journal squares are freebie papers from a magazine from ages ago with a bit of stamping.
There's been a lot going on since we got back on Saturday evening, yesterday my youngest son had bought tickets for us and my granddaughter(we were looking after her while middle son took my grandson to a football match - his first visit to Anfield- pity it was a 0-0) result!)for the Cake and Bake show in Manchester! A little disappointing - for my son - no Paul Hollywood - he'd been and gone on Friday, but for me a great treat to see Peter Sidwell making Foccacia and savoury Eccles cakes! I do like PH but PS is imho a good all rounder!
Today I've been hunting for an outfit for a "Black and White but feel free to add a touch of colour" wedding - I've come back with a black top - not very inspiring, so may have to go to the Trafford Centre this week!
Thanks for looking, can hear the sounds of dishing up, must go!!

At least it was done! Love how you used a laser cut greetings card as a stencil - a girl after my own heart!
Good luck with the wedding outfit hunt!

The pages are so fun when the blocks are all filled in. Your backgrounds are so pretty! I would never have thought of using a laser cut greeting card for a stencil! Great inspiration!

OOOhhh savoury Eccles cakes sounds intriguing. I hope you get back to the caravan soon and that your commitments will allow.
You could maybe wear a colourful outfit with a hint of black or white. I love the idea of making your own stensils, I have been doing something simiar with found objects for my last few sessions of creating
