This is my celebratory contribution to the 100th zendala template from Erin at www.thebrightowl.blogspot.com. I haven't done every zendala, but pretty close, and many I've used several times. I love playing with the templates. Sometimes Erin adds in a twist, and she was subtle about this one - encouraging us to celebrate. So with Easter coming up next weekend, I decided that this template was great for easter eggs, and jelly beans in a sort of basket. I had intended to do something more with the 5 Copada-like things on the outside, but they weren't speaking to me so I left them as is… Happy Easter everyone, and happy spring!

This week's Zentangle Challenge from Laura at www.iamthedivaczt.blogspot.ca is to use a spiral as our string. Challenging! I used Michelle Beauchamp's spiral guide to do the string for the second tile. Love it, and want to play around with her way of doing it a bit more! I started both of these tiles while waiting in the hospital for a family member's minor procedure. Hospitals are stressful, and I can't think of a better way to change focus, keep relatively calm, and pass the time while waiting there! Thanks again Laura for another wonderful challenge!

My entry for this week's Zendala Dare from Erin at www.thebrightowl.blogspot.com. I'm down with a cold after spending a fabulous week in Cuba, but really wanted to participate in this week's Dare. Why is it that I often get sick after a week in the sun? Could it be coming back to colder weather? Or maybe airport germs? Oh well. So I decided to keep it simple, and to choose tangles that are in my comfort zone. I think it needs a bit of something else… maybe colour? I'm going to leave it as it is because I don't have the energy right now to carry on, but maybe I'll look at it again tomorrow.
