 365 day calender.

Oh well, I'm late again!
Only a few days.
As you already know I am following The Kathryn Wheel calender challenge this year, you can see what everyone else is up to on Kate's blog.
It is really worth a look as there are so many different variations on the theme and some fantastic work.
Here's my attempt for this month.

For  August I wanted to get a feel for all that time we would be spending down on our local beach, by the hutties (as they're known here), relaxing with my feet in the sand!
Yer right!
Up to now the weather hasn't been great up here in the North of Scotland this month,
 but I believe the south of England is getting "summer", LOL.

Anyway I have used paper that looks like sand, sand paper and red/blue gingham all from my stash.
The alphabet stickers are from Doodlebug.
Distress ink antique linen.
Stamps from Stampendous, Anita's and Stamp it.

Maybe our summer will start when the kids go back to school in just under a fortnights time.
Whoo hoo!

And to last months now completed gala month.

I'm amazed that I've actually kept up with this challenge,
still the real challenge will be keeping up in September and October when my demo dates are in full flow running up to Christmas....ho, ho,ho...
Can't wait to see what I will be playing with this year.  :)
