We Believe

Hi Everyone
I’ve got some posting to catch up on, I know I said I’d post the page I made for Twistedsketches on Saturday, but I never got around to it. I will! Tomorrow, promise! But for today’s post, I wanted to post my Olympic page. I waited till after the closing ceremonies to finish it up. Like all other Canadians...and American’s, I was glued to my TV watching the Hockey Finals with my family...WOW, what a game!!!!!! What a GOLD!!!! WAHOO! I am so proud of all the Canadian Athletes right now! Not only did we win the most Gold medals for a Hosting team, but we won most Gold Medals EVER! Seriously, that is so cool! I am proud to be a Canadian!!! As the theme for the Olympic here in Canada was “I Believe”, my LO was inspired by that, except I changed it to “WE believe”. I loved this Olympics; it has been my favourite to date for sure. One reason is because it just really brought everyone together, the whole country was in Olympic mood, and so patriotic! This has been the first Olympics my boys have been old enough to watch, and I loved that they watched them with me every day! The men’s hockey finals were just AMAZING to watch, I had my whole family over both games and it was great!
OK...onto the LO! I took inspiration from a sketch found HERE on Valerie Salmons blog
Paper: Bride DSP (inked red with brayer), Sending Love DSP, Night and Day (retired, but still on MDS), Gold, Basic Black, Real Red, Silver C/S, Bronze (retired).
Accessories: #2 Circle Die, Fire Rhinestone, Organza Ribbon (inked with Pacific Blue, retired), letter Thickers
You can't see on the picture the layer of the medals, the gold is popped up extra with excess rubber that comes around the stamps, the silver is with dimensionals, and the bronze is flat.

Thanks for stopping your love for Canada and leave a Canada Shout out here!
