King For A Day

At last I've been crafting again! And here are some details from the light-hearted page I made this afternoon, showing my dear Hubby after he had finished the Brighton Marathon last month. I used a sketch from The Scrappiest for my inspiration.

You can see the 3D elements of the flags and the crown, and the brown circle tag beneath the main photo. This pulls out to reveal a second photo, shown below.

The title 'King For A Day' is a bit of fun because Hubby's surname is King, and it seemed appropriate for the layout.

Firstly, I cut out the background shape from plain blue card and then used a Versamark pad to create a watermark effect with the Hero Arts clocks stamp. I also stamped onto white card the crown, the Papermania alphabet title and the clocks once again. Then I distressed everything with Tim Holtz distress inks. The journaling card is from My Mind's Eye and the orange card that I used for the flags is from my box of scraps.
At the end of the event, the King decreed that he will enter both the London Marathon and the Brighton one next year. They will be just one week apart in 2011.
Personally, I think the King is mad!


  1. This looks great, especially the bunting.

  2. What a great LO ... perfect memory of the event .... yes I agree, he is a little mad to contemplate 2 days apart.

  3. I love it! Long Live the KIng!

  4. Ah, I'm with you Ann - he IS aking, buit he is a bit mad...on the other hand, as long as he doesn't fall into the 'emporer's new clothing' category for running clothes, he'll be OK!! Fab LO - lots of work in this one, love all the added extras.
