August Colour Combo Blog

Welcome fellow bloggers to the August Colour Combo Blog Hop organised by Amy.


If you have arrived here from here you are in the right place


This month I have taken a photo from my recent holiday to Spain, and show AJ's and my tired feet- hence the title of my page. The main background paper is from Pebbles May Bouquet Collection (Patio), Other papers from the Cafe Mediterranean range from DCWV, Treaure These Memories card from the Tres Elegant 4x6 Pad by WRMK, Adhesive stones in Sunshine colours from Papermania, and other embellishments from the August Kit from the Make and Create Shop.

Please hop over to Stephanie to continue this blog hop

I have added the links to all this months participants below and I look forward to seeing you in September for the next blog hop

Hope you have a lovely day in whatever part of the world you are

Love Lesley

As promised, some holiday pictures from our holiday to La Mata in Spain, that we took in July. We had a lovely relaxing time and La Mata is a charming, little town by the sea, with a beautiful beach and restful parkland. Not too touristy which is to my liking, and I'm so lucky that AJ's family own an apartment here.






























Hope you have a good day

Hope to speak to you very soon

My craft space project

As a scrapbooker and card maker, I'm terribly disorganised and I am finding it increasingly hard to get motivated to scrap or make cards because I can't seem to find what I need when I want it. My craft space at the moment is in the dining room with all stash in various bags, boxes and tins. There is absolutely no organisation to anything and I really can't say what I have. I sometimes open up a bag to discover something I had bought months or even years ago - like yesterday I found some gorgeous cat stamps from Penny Black that I purchased on my honeymoon two years ago.

This disorganisation is stunting my creativity and thus, I have decided "Enough is Enough!". It is time to get organised and create a permanent space to use solely for craft,

I am fortunate enough to have two spare bedrooms - one for AJ's stuff and the other allocated for all my stuff. However, my room has become a dumping ground. From clothes to an old television. The room is actually a fairly…

Time flies

Can't believe it is August already. What happened to July? It appears to have disappeared in front of my eyes.

Apart from our holiday, July hasn't been a particular good month for me. Nothing major, but still not fun.

I applied for a internal job vacancy, and didn't get. So I'm still being made redundant in November which is seriously worrying me now that it is only four months away.

Our washing machine finally blew up - a few days after coming back from holiday when we've just spent our money so we have had to get another one

A trip I was looking forward to was cancelled. and I've done absolutely no scrap pages or cards or anything craft related.


I'm hoping August is a better month for me. Got a trip to Kew Gardens to look forward to and a party towards the end of the month. I actually created a scrap book page this evening, so will photograph and put on blog soon, so already I've broken my scrapbook hiatus.

Good evening from Pickle Land

Hope to speak to you …
