My August Page

Well, the weekend is about over. And I did not meet my goal of completing my calendar. I was only able to get 2 more pages done today.

I did my April page this morning before leaving for our dog classes. And this evening while dinner was cooking I put together my August page.

For the August page I used the current sketch for Let's Get Sketchy. I really liked this sketch, so I really wanted to get a page done before the deadline, even though I really didn't have time.

I have been dying to use the Picadilly collection from Basic Grey that I won from Scrappin'-n-Chattin' for last month's challenges. So that is what I used for this page as well as the April page.

The August page is dedicated to Lola. Her birthday was the 15th of August, just like mine. She died unexpectedly on New Year's Eve, so I wanted to create special pages for her in our calendars. The photo is a collage of a few of the photos I had of her.

I used 5 papers from the collection, so I am also entering this page into the April challenge at Scrappin'-n-Chattin' to use 5 different patterned papers on your layout.

My new goal is to get the calendar done during the week. I'm going to fold some clothes now, but when that's done, I will plan my page for tomorrow. Thanks for looking.

What a beautiful heartfelt layout. I too lost my pup in January, and the best way I knew how to tell her how much I missed her was through my scrapbooking. This layout is just gorgeous. Thanks so much for playing along with us at LGS.
