Let's Hear It For The Fab Four and A Card Almost Revealed

Last week's challenge on UKScrappers, set by the Norty Crew, was to use

* A Beatles song title - 10pts
** Either black & white or Red,white & blue - 10pts
***Ribbon, a tree or a weaving technique - 10pts

I've used a photo that was taken about 20 years ago. I had taken the son of one of my cousin's to meet up with a child my youngest sister was looking after. We decided to take them to a local park and they kept running off ahead of us, hence the title. The journalling reads "No matter how many times we shouted it, you'd still run off ignoring us!"

So, the challenge:
* I've used 2 songs 'Wait' and 'Slow Down'
** Colour combination was easy as both boys were wearing red, white and blue
*** Nearly forgot the ribbon, so added some around 2 sides of the photo

I reckon that's all parts of the challenge met, so full points for me for my team Ruby Snippers and my house Gold Eyelets. The title was designed on my ROBO, cut 4 times out of 100gsm paper and stuck in layers.

I nearly forgot, I made a card a few weeks ago for a friend of mine and had hidden the sentiment in the corner. I said I'd reveal once she'd received it. Well, she had her birthday yesterday and the card arrived on time which is a miracle for me this year!! But, I can't show you the card in it's entirity as I only saved the hidden version of it!! What am I like???? lol  So, you know who you are HAPPY BIRTHDAY FOR YESTERDAY. I hope you had a fantastic day. 

Thanks for looking,
Take care, love and hugs,
