Scrapbook Remix 5- The Olympics in quadrants

Scrapbook Remix is a Shimelle online class inspiring us to use our patterned papers
One of Shimelle's prompts included using quadrants......this was the perfect opportunity to use up some of my red and blue 'Brit' papers.......making a London 2012 Olympic page was a must for my 2012 album.....I'm not a sports lover.....and had decided I had little interest in the Olympics.....until it started......and then DD1 and myself got quite carried away with enthusiasm......and spent 2 weeks almost glued to the TV!!!!!!
And I thought London did a great job.
So I've ended up with a very patriotic 'over the top' page.......I've no idea why that big glittery alphabet was in my stash......or even how long it had been there.......but it seemed the perfect opportunity to use it!
The photos came from the official London 2012 website.....well worth a look.

You've chosen some great images that really sum up the whole event Jacky. We loved every minute too and I am so not a sports fan!

London did a great job - and so did you! I love the tilted quadrants. And all your layers/embellishments.

Love your LO!! I want to do a mini album of 2012 as it was such a great year for our country. I'll need to use mini photos as they are all taken off the TV but must get some of the "London" papers etc..
