TSF Olympic Challenge #1: 24 Hour Sprint Sketch Challenge

I am excited to be your official Two Scrapbook Friends' official Olympic Games correspondent and beginning today we will be issuing a new challenge almost every day! There will be games and prizes to be won, so I hope you will join us and play along for the next two weeks!

Our first challenge is a 24 hour Sprint Sketch Challenge. I have been busy all week teasing our friends by providing clues to help them complete their design. Everyone has exactly 24 hours to complete their design, photograph it and get it uploaded to the forum and the gallery at Two Scrapbook Friends; all by 8:00pm on Sunday, July 29. A random winner will be announced in the forum and on our blog, on Monday, July 30th.

Also, be sure you have used all the elements in the clues provided this week:

1. a larger photo (mine is 5.5 x 5.5)
2. a banner
3. hand or machine stitching
4. a little bit (or a lot) of red and white

With the rules out of the way...On your marks, get set...GO!!!!!

Here's the sketch:

Here's an example I made for inspiration. I chose this photo of my children at my hubby's birthday a few weeks ago. I chose it and the the title "So Happy Together" because at the Olympic Games many families will come together to celebrate this once in a lifetime opportunity.

I will give each person an extra entry whose design reflects a CELEBRATION of some kind. I hope you will play along and stop in to see our creations.
Until next time, keep doing what you love.
