The challenge over at the Scrap Our Stash Challenge this month is entitled 'Star and Stripes' and I have to admit I was quite stumped for this one. Here in my wee corner of Scotland we don’t celebrate anything with the stars and stripes, however we did see lots of red, white and blue when we were on holiday in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, a month ago ... gosh, is it that long ago already!
The Diamond Jubilee celebrations were still much in evidence and I just had to take a photo of this delightful shop window.
I chose to make this layout A4 in size – approx 11” x 8” for a change. The papers used are from the Best of British Paper Collection which was issued with a copy of Crafts Beautiful magazine. The bunting was cut out one-by-one and positioned across the top. The title is the name of the shop – the photo has been cropped and matted on red cardstock.
All the embellishments came with the collection except the flowers which I made by punching out shapes, crumpling them up to distress them a little, and adding a tiny pearl to the centre.
I'm not here really ... I'm depending on Mr Blogger to schedule this post for me.
Take care all, and I'll see you when I get back :)
