It hasn't felt much like there's any summer left up here this week - and a majority of this week was nothing but rain. We did, however, get out to the Saskatoon Exhibition on the weekend!
Thankfully the weather cooperated as we enjoyed a beautifully sunny day
The boys were a bit more adventurous with rides having been at Disneyland this year
When at the fair, Candy Apples are a must
One of the only pictures i got of all four of us on the Ferris Wheel/Gondala which i tried very hard not to be squirmy about - as i'm not a big fan of heights
Artoo really loved the small ferris wheel and the caterpillar rollarcoaster.
Look at that face!!
We had a really great day - enjoying the rides and the fairground snacks and the booths filled with 'as seen on tv' devices that you don't really need, but you can't help but watch the demonstrations thinking: "hmm....mayyybe?"
don't worry, we didn't buy any... ;)
Weekly Challenge #280: "Rio Olympics!"
Have you all been watching the Olympics? Sadly, i haven't been - but this is mainly because i don't have TV! (Don't worry, i still have Netflix) But i have been watching the replays and the clips and reading the articles!!
This week i received a text from my fellow Saskatonian CZT Margaret Bremner, suggesting the olympic be the theme of this week's challenge - and i thought HECK YES!
Something really cool for me is seeing that one of the players for Team Canada's Men's Volleyball is a kid i used to babysit when i lived in BC! #2 Gord Perrin (and also his brother and two sisters) were my little charges for many a summer back in the Creston Valley! It's been exciting to see him in action, their match against the USA team was actually one of the only bits of the Olympics i've been able to watch in real time.
GO Gord GO!!
|i used a zentangle apprentice tile for mine tile this week, because i wanted a bit more space to work in|
So here's my tile for this week's challenge! I read that the 5 olympic rings symbolize the continents Africa, Asia, America, Europe, and Oceania
I added a laurel crown of Flux, and then tangled the background using Gold, Silver, and Bronze Sakura Gelly roll metallic pens.
This week let the Olympics inspire you!
