August and still waiting!!!

Soooo....another month flies by and we are still waiting on our buyer's solicitor. We are practically in our flat, spending our days here, doing little jobs that we thought we would do after we moved in(a plus?)The phone is here so I'm reduced to using my mobile phone at home - no long evening chats:( The computer is here and worst of all most of my crafting stuff is here(in boxes) waiting for shelves to go up(maybe tomorrow) However I have kept up with my 366/12 calendar journal (want to know more?) see Kate's blog here
Using what I could find here is my August page
Using my NeocoloursII and Lindsay Mason's 'I dreamed of Castles' and 'Hoist the Flags' sets from my "to go" journal bag that I take away with me to the caravan and an old road map I have set the scene for a break we are taking this month with our grandchildren......a little bit of sea and scenery,and castles!
Here is my completed July page - a mixture of emotions throughout the month as you can see!
Hope to be back to normal soon. Thanks for looking, Chris

Two very creative pages love the use of the map for journal squares that is so clever. Enjoy your break with the grandchildren. xx

You will be dreaming of your own castle...being all signed and sealed and in it without and more solicitor's delays causing you a headache. It can't be long now. Your pages are fantastic!! Have fun and fingers and toes crossed.

Sue said...

That last comment does not make sense...should be ''without any more solicitor's delays''...

Well done you for managing to keep up with your journal, despite all your current upheaval. Super pages again. Hope next month you are creating from your new place :)

For someone who can't access her stash your making beautiful pages, wow!
Have a happy month with shelves and everything in place!

Hope those shelves are up now! I've had a reorganise in my craft room and have been thinking of you in yours!
