August already and a brilliant day out!

I actually had this ready in plenty of time to blog(really, last week!) but then - no time to blog! 
Not that I'm complaining, I'm having a great time with my grandchildren! Yesterday we went to the Lakeland Motor Museum with my two grandsons - really good value for money - lots to see, an excellent kids activity book that really kept them focused(and gave us a chance to look at the exhibits)and to top it all a lovely cafe!
So to what I popped on here for

hoping for a warm August I used a freebie Craft Stamper stamp from ages ago! Distress inks - Ripe Persimmon and Barn Door with a touch of Paint Dabber - Copper.
Here's my completed July pages
A busy month, a hot month, a lovely month!
Thanks for looking, Chris

What a lovely July page! It really captures the mood of summer! I love the little birdhouse, the little birds and the lovely dappled background. Loving the colour combo on the August one too. Julie Ann x

what beautiful pages the colours are stunning and two of my most favourite distress inks at the moment.
Lovely to hear that you all had a great day out I think there should be a site where parents can comment on places they have taken children to rate them so other parents can get ideas of where to go

Your calendar pages are stunning. I love the flowers that don't seem to mind the hot winds of August. It's hot here, too, so I can empathize. Love the bench you got to sit on in July.
