GB Girls

This is my final marathon page, with the focus on the British runners. We originally had three, but Mara Yamauchi pulled out before the pack reached us.  We did see Freya Murray and Claire Hallissey who finished 44th and 57th respectively.

I used this month's sketch from Creative Craft World as the basis for my page. It makes a nice change from arranging my photos side-by-side. I added extra paper panels behind the photos, and used up some ancient rub-on stitching. The Portobello Road papers came with four union flag die-cuts, so I used one on the right as the background for my title and journalling. 

Cardstock - Papermania Kraft Basics
Paper - Papermania Portobello Road, MME Wild Asparagus
Letters - American Crafts Thickers, Papermania Alphaminis
Ink - Ink It Up! 
Eyelet Brads - Pebbles
Rub-On Stitching - Papermania
Thread - Anchor
