The April Lefton figurine came from the bakery where my Little Grama was the cake decorator. I have one for each month of the year; she used them to decorate birthday cakes. I went to work with Grama and stood on a box next to the stainless steel table where her lazy Susan for cakes was positioned. In 15 minutes she could take a cake and turn it into a work of art, roses, swirls, and her handwriting in frosted greetings on the top. Grama's cakes were beautiful creations, and we ate them!
Tags and paper craft don't require a lot of artistic ability. I can cut, glue stick and layer papers on top of cardboard sandwiched in the middle with more scrapbook paper on the back. Making a tag for each month I enjoy displaying them and then tuck each one in a box to bring out the next year.
Cutting the floral graphics from vintage greeting cards, I combined them with the little gal from Imagimeri, there's a link on my sidebar to her amazing blog and collection of graphics. Garnish with a couple of silk flowers and she sits on the shelf with her feet hanging in the breeze.
