Fun with Thomas

I'm a member of several scrapbooking groups on Facebook, and one of the ladies in the UK group For the Love of Pretty Paper recently shared a new Spelling Bee challenge that she'd found at Scrapbook Challenges.

The challenge is to create a page incorporating elements for each letter of your home town, so everyone's challenge will be slightly different. The place where I live has 15 letters, but although you can limit this to any 10  I decided to use my postal town which is Grays, so my challenge is to use glitter, rub-ons, arrows, yellow and sequins.

I've been going through a mini clearout of my stash, and I've had a piece of Thomas the Tank Engine paper lurking there for years. I bought it for a specific set of photos, but I just hadn't got round to making the page. In the spirit of 'Use It or Lose It' I decided to just get it done.

I used glitter thickers for the title, a yellow mat for one of the photos and all the elements appear in the two embellishment clusters.
