Gold

Our family have been watching and enjoying the Olympics over the last week or so and on Saturday night, Greg Rutherford from Milton Keynes won a gold medal in the long jump:)  This meant that our town would have one of its post boxes painted gold in the medalist's honour.  We thought it would be a bit of fun to go and have our pictures taken next to this box so I checked on the internet to see where it was and found we had two gold boxes!

We started to take a few pictures when suddenly, car after car pulled up with the same idea.  It's location had been on the news so everyone had the same idea.

Anyway, back to my layout.  The weekly challenge on UKs was to use a sketch, use 4 or more patterned papers and recycle a household item.   I wanted to scrap my gold post box pictures straight away and the sketch was perfect for me.

Here is a close up of the journalling.
