April Photo a Day Challenge! Mission: Accomplished.

Happy uno de Mayo and yahoo! I'm happy to report that I fully completed fellow blogger fat mum slim's April photo a day challenge!  The photo-a-day challenge is something I really love doing because it inspires me to take a different look at the every day, ordinary things in my life and find beauty or creativity in them.  I also love that I am getting to document my month in photos.  I can't wait to look back on all of these pictures at the end of the year because it's going to be a great photo diary of 2012.  With that said, I encourage all of you to take on the May challenge because it has been very rewarding for me!  If you want to keep up with my photos daily, be sure to follow me on instagram by clicking here or searching for my username: TheBargainBlonde

Before I move on and let your delve into my April photos, I know in Friday's post I said I'd have an announcement on Monday aka yesterday.  Well, story of my life, but I'm still working on the post.  I don't want to just throw it together, so I promise I will be posting about it this week.  Thank you for your patience! It's a comin' ... swear on my DVRs.

OK, so now for the pictures.  These were the prompts for the month:

 ... and below are my photos!  Enjoy.
