A very British Olympic Blog Hop

Good morning everyone,

What an exciting Friday - not only is it Polkadoodles challenge day, we are having a BLOG HOP in celebration of the Olympics which are due to begin later this month.  So, if you arrived here from LOU's blog you are in the right place.

In order to take part in the hop, you must enter a project over at the Polkadoodles challenge blog using a 'Red, White and Blue' theme - showing what Britain means to you.  Then 'hop' along and visit each member of our participating DT and leave them a comment on their blog.  Please remember that you must complete both parts of the challenge (a project and the hop) in order to be in with a chance of winning some fabulous prizes.

Our 'First Prize' is a copy of the new
with a second and third prize on offer of a brilliant

The design team have been busy with lots of inspirational ideas over at the Polkadoodles challenge blog and here's what I designed for the challenge ...

As I have been working on the topic of the 'Olympics' with the children at school this term, I decided to make a scrapbook page this week to record some of the facts that we found out.  It is an 8x8" layout and uses papers from the 'Britannia collection' designed by Nikky Hall.  The image is from the 'Sugar Plum Daisy' CD and is coloured with Promarkers (with a little bit of paper piecing on her t-shirt from a scrap of the union flag paper).  I added a little union flag in her hand, so she looks as if she is celebrating a win! The lettering was produced on my PC and printed onto scraps of the papers.  The five circles are meant to represent the five Olympic rings and each contain a fact about the Olympics (ancient and modern).  

Right onto the important stuff, if you have left a comment below and followed my blog you now need to pop over to 'CLAIRE P' for the next stage in the hop.  If you would like to link to the main blog hop or to this page on your own blog to help spread the word - that would be great too :)

All there is left to say it 'Good Luck' and I shall enjoy reading all your comments. Big hugz, Jan xx
