As I mentioned the other day, for the next couple of weeks over on the Two Scrapbook Friends Forum, we are running a series of challenges in celebration of the 2012 Olympics being held in London, England.
I am up for Challenge #7 today so I'd like to see a little patriotism........a scrapbook page or card showcasing the colours of your countries flag.
The subject can be anything at all, and if you feel a particular attraction to the colours of another countries flag instead of your own.....go for it. As long as it's obvious as to which country/flag you are representing, your entry will qualify.
For my scrapbook page, being a Brit, I am of course flying the red, white, and blue of the Union Jack so here goes.
Now I realize I'm taking a few liberties here with the light blue.......it's definitely not the royal blue of the Union Jack, but I really just wanted an excuse to use my Authentique papers, so baby blue it is!
The real question here is - How much trouble do you think I'll be in when my Dad catches sight of this posted on the Internet? The only good thing (which is not usually good) is that we do live 3000 miles apart........well out of arms reach so to speak. He is however an avid follower of my Blog so he's bound to see it sooner or later..............."Hi Dad.......love ya.........don't do anything hasty here.........remember I am your only daughter!"
As mentioned previously, papers are from the Authentique 'Fresh' line, and my stash of Washi tape came in handy again to create the bunting style banner.
I also saw this idea in a magazine a little while ago, of creating a Union Jack heart, and knew it would fit perfectly with the theme of this page.
I couldn't resist one of the postcard images on the reverse of the patterned papers, so I had to place the lovely lady just so, that she could give that look of awe and amazement! :)
Hop on over to the Forum if you get a chance, to join in with the fun. We'll be taking a break over the weekend for a much needed rest, but there are lots more challenges and games lined up for next week!
I'll be back here on Monday with..........oh I have no clue, but I'll see you then.
Have a good weekend,Jayne.x.
