August.....

I don't want to rush summer away, but it seems that once August hits the days get little by little shorter, then the kids head back to school. Yuck...I think I will just enjoy the days we have left of our wonderful summer. Say hello to August.....I just love this little Tilda looking over her shoulder at the butterfly. I coloured her with copics and used some new papers from K& Company. My blogging friends Monique, Danni, Kathryn, Julie, Tangil and Lisa have even joined in with this calendar page fun!




I have not posted at all this summer due to lots of outdoor activities. I apologize, but will resumer back to regular posting soon!

  27. This is beautiful Christine. The colours are gorgeous and I love the layout. I'm glad you're having a good summer. We've had a few days of hot weather here - long may it last. When do the schools in Canada start again? It's not until September here so we have another 4 1/2 weeks to go!!
