Zip it!

Ali set a lovely challenge last week on UKS to focus on ourselves.  I had a photo on my desk waiting to be scrapped from 2012 (I'm up to June so getting there...slowly!) and it fitted the bill perfectly.

So the challenge was;

Theme - Featuring yourself or someone close to you 5 points
Using numbers, but not as a bullet point - 5 points
Using visible journalling - 10 points 
Using photographs of yourself & other events 10 points

I had such an amazing experience doing my zip wire challenge that I had to document it;

Some of the numbers I wrote about;
  • 260 meter zip wire
  • Travelling at up to 25 mph
  • £709 raised for the BSSA
  • 150 girls and leaders from Girlguiding UK too part
  • 1/2 million people in UK affected by Sjogrens
  • 9/10 sufferers are women

I used a Gossamer Blue kit (giving the last few Sarah's ones a rest while I use up my Gossamer ones now!) and added some random stitching.

And if you have not seen it before (please allow me to indulge myself if you have!) here is good old me on the zip wire....

What a brilliant thing to have done, and your page is full of energy - love the stitching and twine - seems to go with the zip wire somehow :).

Great page to document your experience. Love the camera flair and the background colour.

Fabulous. Love how you have linked the bottom left clustering with the photo by journaling between them. Sounds like a great experience. Like how you have stitched the numbers in your journaling.
