Turning the Page August 2018

Tomorrow we turn the page on our calendars to a new month.

I make calendars each year and I've been sporadic about sharing them with you so
I thought I'd set up a regular post on the last day of each month "Turning the Page".

I hope you enjoy these posts.

Here's our August page.

By the way, the calendars are clipped together and can be displayed on an easel
or hung on a push pin or magnetic hook.  We all have a different way to display them.

Happy August!

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Beautiful thistle and butterfly Bonnie. I need to get that thistle image. :) I haven't been to Serendipity before, so I know I'll have fun looking around and most likely will have a few of their stamps soon, because of you! :) xx
