Lotus and Frog inspired upcoming week in my Filofax Apex Personal Green and Filofax A5 Chameleon Black

Lotus is my favourite flower! I just love the way it looks; the gorgeous flower itself, the beautifully shaped leaves and  the buds. I also I admire it's unique nature of floating on water and blossoming in a muddy pond. This unique characteristic (blooming beautifully even in the muddy pond water) is purely the reason why The Lotus flower tops the list of flowers offered to God in the Hindu religion. I have always been amazed at this divine flower that God has created! Lotus is found in many ponds in India and probably that is why it is the national flower of India. Born in a Indian Hindu Brahmin family, I have seen my parents offer this beautiful flower to God while worshipping. Since I was a little girl, I used to admire the beautiful lotus buds that my father used to bring home for festive season worship as offering to God. I still remember the lovely drawings of the Lotus flower that my mother used to draw; she still does I believe :)

So this upcoming week, I am using my Filofax Apex Personal Green and Filofax A5 Chameleon Black; both decorated using the Lotus and Frog theme. I absolutely love the Filofax Chameleon planner. This was my first Filofax. I own quite a few now.  But this Chameleon was, still is and will always remain my favourite! It is a beautifully designed leather Filofax planner. I really fail to understand the reason why it has been discontinued. As for the non-leather Filofax Apex in Green and Pink, I bought this one solely because of the colour, that once again reminds me of the Lotus Flower.

 Here are a few photos

I made all the paper clips that you see in all these pictures. 
My first ever attempt at Felt Crafting. I quite like the way they turned out.

A pond full of beautiful lotus blossoms cannot be complete without frogs. So, I added these cute little frogs :)
