April is upon us.
It's my favourite month of the year. I am biased, because my birthday falls in it. But there is so much to love! The excuse to eat loads of chocolate because Easter. The whole my-country-not-being-as-much-on-fire-any-more thing. Also did I mention chocolate?
This month's theme isn't chocolate. This month we're crafting Dreams. But maybe if I dream of chocolate I can make chocolate things and eat it all in the name
The Journal Feature ChallengeI love featuring art in my journal on a regular basis. There is so much great art around here that I find fascinating and I wish more people could see it. It's a great way to discover new artists and find inspiration. You can always browse and search for art on your own, but in my experience, is a lot more effective to search through collections curated by artists with interests similar to yours, as in their favourites or features in their journals. Besides, is also a great way to show your appreciation for artists you admire! And usually artists do appreciate the promotion when you let them know.

The Paintbucket Challenge
The idea of this challenge is to create some fancy letters using only a template with a grid on it and the Paintbucket tool to fill the grid's shapes. I got this idea from betteo who hosted the original <a href="http://fav.me/d209ypf">
