It August

It's been several weeks since I last blogged. Life, or lack of it, has got in the way but I now hope to find the inspiration to make an entry at least once a week. Do you think it will happen?

Thursday 1st August - Sale at the church - Went fairly well but not many people in, we did have a lot of 'new' stuff this week which always helps.

Friday 2nd August - a super day - I felt that I was to get off the bus early and go to TK Max, that prompt didn't let me down, I was there the right day and picked up a set of American Craft Knock out punches something I've been admiring and fancied having for quite a while.  I also got a 12x12 pad of Amy Tangerine Yes Please papers  (like these but single sided 48 sheets of 24 patterns)
That was a good start to the day. I then went into town and Carole's Craft have re-opened but in a far better location in the Brunel Centre hopefully they will be able to get more customers there.
Met up with Neil for a coffee and a chat, and just walking down afterwards to catch the bus I met a friend who brought me home in her car. Ended the day with a play with my new craft material and did this page from my trip up to see Helen and family
Helen and I in Leeds for a bit of Mother & Daughter time without the children. (really enjoyable too)

City Break

Saturday 3rd August - an easy day - a trip to ASDA along the lane and the lane didn't disappoint, the sun was warm and the butterflies were abound

Yes, August came quick this year didn't it. I too have been able to spot some great American Crafts finds at TJ Maxx. I'm especially excited that since they now manufacture for Studio Calico, I've seen some of those goodies too. Great layout - I really like that eye-catching title font.

I know you can do it! Lovely post today - your outing looks like such fun.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
