September is almost here...

Sorry... but it's true! Only a few days to go and September will be upon us...back to school and looking towards autumn! I'm hoping that we have some good weather as we have a holiday booked in a couple of weeks, Devon in the rain with a large doggy is not a lot of fun! 
Any way over Catch the Bug it's new release day and this week's 'September ' image is perfect for a calendar, so I made a little flip- over desk-top calendar. 
The base of the calendar is made from recycled chip board (from packaging ) and covered with wood effect DP. I used my (rarely touched) Bind It All to attach the pages. The red gingham panel is there to stick the actual calendar on- when I can get one, was told they won't be in stock until the end of the month. 
The September page features this week's new release, Kidz Sitter Girl Book and Book Stack
I have made a couple of other pages but it's still a work in progress!
Thanks for visiting
Enjoy the rest of August!

This just brilliant Chris, such a super design and a really great image, brilliant make.
Grandson arrived home from holiday 6am this morning and they are gutted that they have only a week left before they go back to school, it really does seem to have flown by this year, or is just an age thing with me that everything is flying by these days.

Love your kid sitting on a stack of books, you colored it all so nicely. What a beautiful back to school page. You are very talented. Thanks for sharing that talent at Moving along with the Times.

This is such a fun and creative page using the September stamp. I am so not ready for summer to be over, because after that is chilly weather.....
