Default SBVC141 - March Month of Holidays

This is the first Wednesday of the month so I thought we could have fun with bizarre and crazy holidays of March. Did you know that today is Old Stuff Day? How about March is National Frozen Food month? I guess we should all hide on March 20th because it is Extraterrestrial Abductions Day! My favorite is March 16th though because not is it Everything You Do Is Right Day but it’s also my birthday – those two just fit together so well! LOL!

Ok, so I have listed these bizarre and crazy holidays below and the challenge for this week is to use one of them for your page inspiration.

For my sample page, I used March 30th – Take a Walk in the Park Day. I was able to do another page of our field trip to The Hermitage which is Andrew Jackson’s home. While it’s not exactly a park, it is sort of like one and it was very springy and pretty.

Month:
•Irish American Month
•Music in Our Schools Month
•National Craft Month
•National Frozen Food Month
•National Irish American Heritage Month- designated by Congress in 1995.
•National Nutrition Month

12 Girl Scouts Day
12 Plant a Flower Day
13 Ear Muff Day
13 Jewel Day
14 Learn about Butterflies Day
14 National Potato Chip Day
14 National Pi Day- Why today? Because today is 3.14, the value of Pi.

This is one of my favorite kinds of challenges. It's hard NOT to find at least one day for scrapping inspiration. Thanks, Michele!
