20 days to the Olympics!

Can you believe it?  Only 20 days to the start of the Olympics in London.  The sun is shining - Summer has finally arrived!

I spotted that A Passion for Papertrey were having a fun challenge called "Olympics" and decided to try to squeeze in an entry before the deadline.  I just got my hands on this amazing set from PTI called "Flipping Out" by Melissa J.   A friend from the US who arrived this morning very kindly brought my PTI order over with him... lots of goodies to play with - yipee!!.

I decided to play around with textures and colour and I apologize for the poor photo but the sun is so strong (yipee!) it was washing every photo out and I just didn't have time to play with it!
I added glossy accents to the top of the flip flop to make them like those trendy havaianas flip flops.

great idea for your jandals Deirdre. Hopefully the summer weather will stay and be fine for the Games. Looking forward to seeing some of the highlights.... being 12 hrs ahead, most of the good stuff will be in the middle of the night!
