365 day calendar

Oh I'm getting later and later with this and we're only just over half way through the year.
Still we have had great weather the last couple of days in Scotland so the family have been making the most of it and spending time on our local beach and in the sea, brrrr!

Now for July I have to admit hand on my heart that this has been a bit of a rush job,
with no crop this month to play at and plenty of other things on the horizon,
not to mention the kids at home....
it so interrupts my crafting time!  LOL.
I may have to go back to it at a later date and tweak it!
Anyway here it is:

I have used:
Papers from Making Memories Kids collection SAM.
Triangle punch from Woodware.
Stamps from Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Urban Grunge & Lost and Found.
Ink from Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Silver, Turquoise blue and Artic blue.

Now the reason for the bunting is that our local village has it's annual gala this month and it lasts for over a week with manner of events planned.
It really is a super week of entertainment for the school holidays....
all we need now is the weather to match!

I have also finished June,
which I love how it has turned out.
I hate to admit this but it is my favourite so far.

You can see what I used to make it in my earlier June post.

Why not pop on over to Kathryn's blog, who has organised this calender journalling and have a wee lookie at everyone else's would not believe how different they all are.

Finally I am finishing on a wee bit of sad news,
yesterday I lost the last of my grandparents who died at the grand old age of 94.
RIP Grandma, I know you're in a better place.  xxx
