July and August calendar pages

I happened to notice that Kate had her July pages finished and on her blog. I have completed my July calendar, and have also started my August pages. So, count me as "still here," Kate.


For July decorations, I considered Patriotism. However, many monthly calendar visitors are from countries other than the US, so that's when I decided July was the month many people take vacations.


On the left side, I used a couple of magazine images that included a suitcase and a compass.


For the right side, I found some images that looked like they would be fun places to visit, including a carousel with horses that I love so much.


And finally, I went back to using a pre-made calendar page for August. Those little squares work so well! So hop on over to The Kathryn Wheel, say hi to Kate and check out all the other monthly calendar entries, too. I'm on my way to let her know I'm still in this with just five months to go in 2011.

Love the vibrant red on your July pages. Can you believe there are only 5 months left to this year?
I've enjoyed sticking with this challenge - I've got a great record of my daily doings since Jan 2010! Also met some lovely bloggy people :D

Interesting background in your book wonder what kind of book it is. Lovely idea to use pre-made calendar pages for August.

Love what you are doing. It will be fun to look back at what we were doing a year from now. Sorry you had trouble getting on my blog. I shall have to check that out.

So you cut the squares out of an acutal calandar? That sounds much less time consuming than cutting scraps of paper down to size. I might need to try that one.

I'm impressed that you and the rest of the group have kept up your pages. I usually start calendar/journal things with a big bang in January and peter out about May.
