August 365 pages

I'm late this month, but at least I've still got them done! I haven't done September's pages yet - I started them, but messed up so until I get home tomorrow, there's nothing to show there.

Somehow, I managed to do two entries for the 8th! I shall blame it on having a niece staying as it couldn't possibly be my fault.

And I didn't have to get the grumpy dog stamp out this month - it won't last.

Finally, I've got one of those bargain finds that make others seethe! I've never ever before discovered anything bargain wise (maybe because I don't get out much to rummage), but while Lynne took my nieces to get bank accounts, I went into a charity shop to have a look round. My aim was to find a book with good pictures in for me to cut out for journalling, but I saw this display case thingy and thought it could do with a bit of tarting up. I've used the universal crafting size guage:

and look how much it was:

I'm not sure when I'll get round to doing something with it or what I'll put on it, but it was too good to miss!

your pages are fantastic Kaz. LOL at your universal crafting size gauge! The little inkspot is perfect for giving us the idea of the dimensions! I can think of a million and one things I would like to do with this little unit-well done on such a good bargain.
Thank you so much for your lovely comment about my little stamp,
Love Sarita xx

Oh wow! what a fabby bargain that shelving thingie was - no wonder you snapped it up. Can't wait to see it tarted up!
Your pages look wonderful - but then, they always do

Fab journal pages, love the zingy colours. Maybe the grumpy dog could put in an appearance regardless? Just put a cross over him if he wasn't really needed, perhaps? Great bargain find there, well done!
