Great British Blog Hop

Its day 2 of the Great British Blog Hop, huge thanks to Nikki AKA Sunshine Girl for organising

I wanted to create something that included some typically British things

What better way than a layout...It was hard to know what to include because when you sit down and actually think about it there are so many things that represent Britain or things that people associate with Britain.

So here's my layout: I apologise in advance about the brightness/colouring.

From fish and chips to hackney cabs etc, the list is endless. The one thing I had to include though was her Majesty, the Queen :)

I also made a (Post It Note) notepad using a couple of beer mats and some of my favourite papers, Paper Manias Portobello Road and Ruby Rockets Vintedge.

On the inside of the cover is an old map of London rub-on....something I've had for years!! Amazing what you find when having a sort out.

To carry on with the hop and see some more creations pop on over to the other participants blogs: next on the list is Mrs Wookie
