March and April Throwback

I am getting into these "then and now" throwback calendars.  I can't believe that my style has changed quite a bit!
2011 calendar is on left and 2014 is on right.

Whoa!  Big change at first glance!  Yep, you guessed it; 2011 is St Patrick's Day themed and 2014 is spring themed.  Similarities are they both have stamped/colored images and minimum bling.  Other than the themes, the other difference is 2011 has torn edges and 2014 has straight with ribbon border.  My one word for 2011 is SCATTERED and for 2014 is SUBDUED.
And moving on to April:

In April, both sets are Easter themed; but, 2011 has bunnies and 2014 is more religious.  Other differences are one has a larger colored image and other has a smaller stamped image, one has rhinestone swirl and the other has a few pearls, and 2011 has a torn border and 2014 has straight edge with border.  They both have the same paper and almost the same placement.  My one word for 2011 is FLASHY and for 2014 is RESTRAINED.
Looking at this on the computer, I think I should have used something other than the glitter tape on the 2014 calendar.  What's done is done.  Mental note made.
Up for tomorrow is May and June.
Hope you have a creative day!
