Monthly Calendar Journal for July

As many of you know by now, Kate Crane of the Kathryn Wheel, hosts a monthly calendar journal challenge. I have been doing this for exactly a year now as I started in July 2010. It is great fun and I highly recommend it. You can find out more on Kate's blog here Sorry the picture is so bright, really in reality the colour is much nicer. Please click anywhere on the picture to see the detail. Background and squares were all created with acrylic paints and various stamps, mainly Tim Holtz.

  24. I'm in awe of those butterflies and the flowers behind the days of the week. This must be butterfly month and you must really enjoy stamping. I'm enjoying just looking at all the detail , including the hearts in between the days of the week.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
