It's Monday...again!

Yes, it's Monday again but not Mojo Monday...I'm saving last week's sketch..


I managed another graduation LO this weekend in between the Olympics and F1....




I used Little Yellow Bicycle "Love Letters" papers, chipboard stickers, ribbon and brad...then added some stitching (with beads) a handmade, stitched flower (the felt was free with Simply Homemade magazine) plus flowers from Manor House, Maya road and Prima. A TH token finishes it off..I used "E" (for excellence).


We had a great time on Friday evening...we had a mini street party and watched the opening ceremony outside on a big screen with some neighbours.
I loved it! 
Especially the Industrial Revolution bit, where I was pleased to see Kenneth Branagh as Brunel, complete with cigar..I hate the airbrushing of History that seems compulsory these days.
I also managed to miss Paul McCartney which was a bonus from comments I've read!!

Great LO, very extravagant and worthy of the occasion. The Olympic Opening Ceremony was great, loved the Queen. Paul McCartney reminded me of an inebriated pensioner imitating Paul McCartney....Hugs, Valerie

p.s: I just told Virginia about this over at hers but wonder if you'd like it too. Just saw it at Sian's blog. A free class with prompts for stitching on LO's: http://fromhighinthesky.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/a-sneak-for-stitching-on-paper.html

Great LO, love the colour combo.

One of my Canadian blogging buddies living in USA said that their tv presenter thought Branagh was President Abraham Lincoln!!
