August Kit - Lazy Summer Afternoons


What is it about August? It's always been such a "just there" month for me. Kind of bittersweet actually. I live for the summer, love hot weather -- it just feels so carefree. And August has always signaled "the end" for me. So I really struggled with what to add to the kit. I pictured just lounging back by the pool or lake and taking in the last beautiful days of summer. But I couldn't really come up with any elements that fit that mood, so I went with more "standard" elements instead. In the end -- I probably should change the name of the kit! LOL!

Included in this kit are:
5 bold colorful papers, good for both boys and girls
4 striped papers
3 large polka dot papers -- all polka dots have pretty intense textures, which you can see in a few of them on the preview
Papers are in download one.

Download 2 holds the elements.
12 "glitter" words -- I don't know that they're exactly glitter, but that was the only description I could think of!
5 inked edge tabs (thanks, Atomic Cupcake)
5 chipboard frame clusters -- these range from 3 to 6 photo spaces in 5 different colors
1 Word Art in 5 colors

I hope you enjoy it!

Thank you so much. I have just recently decided to go ahead and take advantage of the wonderful set of freebies you have offered. I think I may make personal calenders for my family and I think this is the best I have found. No one else that I know of also gives you a kit to use for that month....fabulous.

I did my download earlier, but had problems and IE gave me that fabulous screen. So I have returned to leave a little love as I say again thanks for this awesome and spiritual inclined calendar planner. Love the photo templates and the biblical verses that definitely enhances each month's layout. Leavin LUV! XOXOXO

I love the colors and textures you have in this kit. I just figured out that there were all these lovely kits to go with your calendar templates and I've been downloading those since March! How unobservant is that?! Thank you so much.
