Celebrate the Nations

The Allsorts challenge this week is perfect for a Londoner like myself. London is gearing up at full speed for the Olympics. We were in Trafalgar Square on Saturday where the 'countdown the days' clock is proudly displayed. The London Evening Standard Newspaper is full of the Olympics and showcases British Athletes every few days. Callum and I have tickets for the Seated Volleyball in September. I have seen this on T.V and the athletes are truly amazing moving around the court using only their arms.

So today I am sharing my tribute to the Olympics-the August page of a 2012 calendar:

I printed out the logo and the silhouette of the London Background and cut them out, punched the rings using a 'martha stewart' punch-colours of the rings and how they are positioned is correct. It seemed a bit bare so I added the Bakers twine to give it some texture.

 And there you have tribute to the Olympics from a proud Londoner!!

Have a happy Monday


  1. What a wonderful take on our theme Sandie.

    And well done on getting some tickets for the volleyball, I've heard so many people saying they didn't manage to get anything.

    One of my sons is a volunteer and assigned to the Tai quan do team as he was the junior UK champion when he was at Uni. As you can guess he's pretty excited about it.

    Thank you so much for joinin in our Celebration of Nations theme at Allsorts this week adn good luck.
