10- Oh Canada

This week was Canada . Our first truly BIG country. It was time to use the map poster I bought on a whim from urban outfitters.

Ok so it was too big for the card lets use it was the book page.

Next oooo red shiny paper lets cut out a maple leaf type shape. Ahhh tool big. Book page.

Ok let's google a moose. Let's copy moose on vellum. Love the moose. Let's stick in in the book.

Ok what next. Ah a cute little Canadian Mountie. Copy colour errrr stick in the book.

Errrrr isn't this a postcard challenge.

Ok let's stick ribbon to a post card to look like mountains. Fab idea. Shite in practice.

Today (Saturday ) we cleared out the pantry as it needs decorating. And kind a box of old photos.

I would never say I've been to Canada if people asked me but I have ok it was only to an airport for a couple of hours but I've been to the loo and had a drink in Gander and I have a phot to prove I was there. Well it was going I the bin pile as it was only of the airport but I decided to rescue it. Stick it to a post card and add a badly drawn on maple leaf. Et voila!

love the little bits of Canada. Drawing of the Moose is so adorable and love how the red leaf meanders in two places. I was at the '67 World Expo in Montreal. I was 8 mo. pregnant. It was amazing.
