Sunday Stampers Shiny!

When I saw Hels challenge for this week I just knew I had to do something for my banner that would remind me of the Olympics and all the lovely shiny medals that our Olympians have won for us - Well done team GB!
I used up some Portobello road papers and some stickers of a bus and taxi and heart flags that I had left over from the Jubilee celebrations that were glittery and shiny. Then I made two mini tags that I stamped with a Tim quote, 'It's not who you are that holds you back it's who you think you are not' and 'Be an Olympian - live the life you've imagined'. Two saying I hope you will agree are apt. We can all be the equivalent of an Olympian if we work on something that we love doing.I added a row of shiny gold medals and stamped Congratulations onto shiny silver card.

Two little flags to wave and a glittery F and finally a little I love London 2012 sticker on the bottom. It has been quite a year for us Brits, which is lovely in all the economic gloom. Five more banners to go! Hopefully it will be up in the craftroom soon! Have a  lovely week everyone. x

  2. Great way to celebrate the Olympics . Fabulous images and layout. You will have to photograph the whole banner when it's fixed together. Tracy x
