Calendar Time!

Marci by Stampotique originals
Bunting by Dylusions

Woohoo! I'm still on top of this challenge (just!). Are you?! I didn't get round to showing June as a work in progress, but I didn't want you to think I was getting behind or anything like that.

June was quite a month for us here in the UK as we threw ourselves into celebrations for the Queen's Jubilee, not to mention the Olympic Torch doing the rounds around the whole of the country. I have honestly never seen so much bunting everywhere and I love it, so a bit of bunting had to feature on my page.

I turned 'Marci' into the Queen (and I'm sure Her Royal Highness would be just delighted about that!) and before you tell me, I  KNOW she isn't just the Queen of England, but I found this quote in a vintage nursery rhyme book, so it's a bit of artistic licence! 


And finally I added the words of the National Anthem along the bunting ......



I'm so sorry if I didn't get round to visiting your calendar on your blog this month. Life has been a bit hectic to say the least round here, but I will try harder this month. Hope you are all still enjoying this challenge - remember we are over half way now! Link up below with your completed June and/or your July ready-to-go:

  1. Your calendar page is wonderful...beautiful colours. I can say I am more up to date than I have been the last two months but still not up to date. :-)

  3. I'm having a bit of a problem with my blog and my ISP at the moment. I was thrilled I was able to get on long enough to post my calendar pages.

    Yours are so, so colorful and beautiful. I wish I had your talent. Your pages always look so polished.

  12. your pages are always so bright, cheerful, full of interest and beautiful. I wish I could do something so well!!! thanks for hosting this challenge. I'm even going to do my own calendar book next year instead of having my hubby buy one. I would have never thought to do it if not for this challenge. I hope to continue with this too though.
