As you can imagine the UK was gripped by London 2012 and DGD was no exception. She is now eating lots of fruit and veggies so that she can be 'big and strong to be a gymnast, synchronised swimmer and runner' for 2024!!

DD#1 and DGD came round for dinner in the garden last Monday and we ended up playing Olympics, jumping off steps, racing and discus throwing with the place mats. My favourite part of the event was when she said 'follow me and wave your flag (the place mat) and wave to the crowd' love that kid's imagination!!!

I was inspired by ScrapFit's Workout #73 'I Remember' as DGD's ability to create a game from a real life observation is something I never want to forget :0)

papers are OA 

Doily was cut on Silhouette, brads are MME

stamp is Heidi Swapp, sticker is Cosmo Cricket and letters are Prima that have been misted with Comic Shimmer

As I took the doily of the mat and scraped the waste off, some of it fell onto the page so I stuck it where it was and then Stickled it! The butterfly is a TH die
Thanks for popping in,
