Our flights to Armenia are all booked! We even got some decidedly non-stupid-o'-clock times. And of all the GOLD teams, ours was the first to be booked. It turns out that there was a little competition between each GOLD team leader to get their team's details in first, and Team Armenia were totally in there! We were therefore dutifully awarded a prize: a little jacket for our team mascot to wear. To help keep her warm in the 45 degree HEAT!!!!
I should point out that our team mascot is a bear and therefore perfectly happy to submit to such treatment.
I went for lots of cool, calming colours with this page, and the red/white/blue airmail theme seemed to fit the subject. I LOVE the airmail twine too, and the Jenni Bowlin Alphabet stencil helped add a bit of focus and interest to the background.
Thought I'd try something a bit new for the journalling, although the jury's out as to whether I adore it or am underwhelmed by it. We'll see.
And now, I shall return to the scrapbooking. I helped out of a school Duke of Edinburgh expedition this weekend and as a consequence, my face is a giant, sunburned blister. At this point, if my face doesn't fall off, it will be a bonus. I am walking lesson as to the dangers of ignoring suncream. Pointed this out to my students today.
In my defense, I did pack lots of waterproofs and warm clothes after hearing a somewhat dubious weather forecast. But not a drop of rain did we have - just relentless sunny times and no shade. Hence the burning. I also don't think it is fair that I should both be sunburned and have to wake up with a film of ice over my tent that fell through the tentflap first thing in the morning when I peeked out to check the students were still there. One or the other, ice, or sunburn, but both?
That's probably enough about the weather, but I am NEVER going anywhere without suncream again.
P.S. The photo is obviously, not us in a plane, but the best shot I got of the Red Arrows flying in formation years ago. They kept moving and wouldn't stay in the camera frame, and I took it back in the day when I had a compact digital camera that took the photo about 4 seconds after you clicked the shutter. Good times :D
