Tanda Stamps Challenge - Walk like an Egyptian

The Tanda Teaser today is called 'Walk like an EGYPTIAN'. We want to see cards with an 'Egyptian' theme!

I had this Joanna Sheen Egyptian Adventure CD rom for my birthday and used some of the excellent images from it to make this decoupage card. I love the colours and have always been fascinated by Ancient Egypt. Hope you like my card.

Farnborough Airshow Airbus 380

The airshow is over for another 2 years but these fab pictures were taken from the local park where we had a lovely picnic and watched the planes take off. Great fun. The Airbus is huge but very graceful. An awesome sight. The airshow is well worth a visit. A bit expensive but excellent for those aircraft enthusiasts.

Farnborough Air Show Red Arrows

I love Farnborough Air Show. I live 4 miles from the airfield and work right next to it. I love the excitement and the noise. The Red Arrows fly right above my house, really low down in formation. This was taken with my mobile!! Not bad eh? I think it's great. We're going to the local park on Sunday with a picnic to watch the show from the hill overlooking the airfield. FANTASTIC. Hope the weather is good.

Sarah Kay Challenge

*Week 2* A Little Sketchy

Please make your work using the Sketch as your guide. You can rotate the sketch & even resize the elements if you would like to, but do not move the elements around,
As long as we can still see the original sketch layout and can be easily recognised then that is fine!

Hope you like my entry.
