Summer months....

We have had some unusually cooler air and drier air the last couple of days.  That can only mean the heat will be extreme in the near future.  But I am enjoying it while it's here!

Speaking of hot weather, here are the really summer months for my generic calendar set. 

July, August and September are up next.  July's pages are attempt #2 at the month.  The first set I did, I just hated and tore them up!  I get so frustrated sometimes!  Love the way this attempt turned out.  In August's pages, I used the DIY enamel dots I made at the beginning of June.  Came together perfectly!

Here they are:

I had wanted to create a pennant banner for one of the months and it looks perfect with August!  It was a little tricky.  And, it was my first time using my Copics in a while.  I had to print out two sheets of images because of my shaking hands. 

Next post will be October and November.  On to make a Throwback calendar.  It will look like a calendar I made a few years ago.  Should be easy enough.

Have a creative day!
