Red, white and blue challenge

Its time for another challenge over at S J Crafts and this is a very topical one, perfect for scrapping all those Jubilee photos.  All you have to do is create something that includes red, white and blue - easy peasy!  

My layout for this challenge is something different for me.  I usually squidge everything up with lots of layers but because there is a lot going in the photos and that Union Flag paper, I felt I needed a bit of space between the elements.  

This challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to scrap some recent pictures from one of our more recent trips to Beaulieu.  They have a new exhibition there this year called "50 Years of Bond" celebrating 50 years of the films by displaying 50 iconic vehicles including a cello case and a crocodile shaped submarine!  The crocodile is a favourite of the children, as is all the fantastic footage of amazing car chases.  

My own favourites are the Austin Martin Vanquish and the Aston Martin DBS that you can see under the title there.  Its the car from Casino Royale that flipped 7 3/4 times making it a world record breaker.  I've never been a Bond fan really but after seeing these awesome vehicles I just might have to become one!

So do you think you can come up with a papercraft project involving red, white and blue?  If you can, please do upload it to the S J Crafts website and you could be in with a shot at the prize.  The closing date is 18th July at 1pm.  Have fun!

Bye for now!


  1. What a great take on the theme! I watched my first ever Bond film a couple of weeks ago, so I can see where you are coming from. An exhibition like this might just persuade me to watch a few more! Clever page.

  2. Great LO Lisa-Jane!

  3. A really great layout and the exhibition sounds well worth a visit x

  4. What a great double page spread and I think you've just come up with my son's birhday treat for next month. Thankyou xx

  5. i can see the attraction...shame Daniel Craig wasn't there. Fab layout Lisa-Jane x

  6. Great double-page layout, I like the repeated tags.

    Hubby wants to visit Beaulieu, I'm not sure how much I'll enjoy it but he should get to choose sometimes, right?! x
