Changing Seasons - 7 Dots Studio April Challenge

Hello Everyone

It is a very chilly day in Johannesburg and just as I walked in the door, the rain drops began to fell! BRRR...
so a very apt page to share with you today! ;-)

I am just in the nick of time to submit this page for the 7 Dots Studio April Challenge here.

April showers bring May flowers

So this is my take on the challenge. I apologise in advance, if the photo's are not so great, because with this very dreary weather outside, the lighting was awful.

In our part of the world, May means that autumn is almost over and winter is surely on it's way! So hence the reason for the title of my page. My journalling says: Month of May 2014 - The Aloe blooms twice a year! Once at the start of Spring and then again at the start of winter.  May has come and it's a sure sign of the changing seasons!

I used the gorgeous Love is in the Air papers and an Illumination sticker, along with some of the Illumination stamps. The colouring was super for this page, and I just enhanced a little more of the orange.

I used 2 Enmarc chippies, which I crackled and aged. The blooms are BoBunny and Prima and the stencil also Prima. I have been on a mission to also use my stash and so the title is a mix mash of alpha rub-ons. The washi tape is My Minds Eye.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I really do appreciate your visits!
