good-bye august...


saying goodbye to august is so many things. it's the beginning of school, which to me is really the real new year. it's the closing of the pool, the cooler weather. the reality that the year is slowly creeping to it's end. it's getting back to a routine. it's getting all those wonderful summer memories wrapped up in your mind as well as your memory books. it's planning for next years get-aways. it's focusing on home and making it a welcome place for all the upcoming holidays and celebrations. it's also time to bake when the weather cools down. so...i will be back to post the cupcake of the new little love.
meanwhile, loved doing this august calendar wrap up. what a month!!! this was inspired by kimmithylaine. she designs for a million memories. she wrote up a little tutorial on their board as she has made several of these calendars. great little way to use up some scraps as well as just have a month at a glance. i am going to add this to my repertoire on a monthly basis.

hope to be back later...have a beautiful day.
