Compendium of Curiosities 2: Challenge 9



Linda challenges us to do a pocket watch by Tim Holtz Idea-ology. I used Portobello Road
 6" x 6" paper, cutting out the Union Jack from the cover and Portobello buttons. I also used Idea-ology crown and chain. I typed out the words "2012" and "Olympics". For more information go to Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities 2 page 35.
Thanks to Simon Says for sponsoring this challenge.



All the shops are selling these gold medals made of chocolate, and I'm sending them to my daughter who is away at university. Lets hope we win many real gold medals this summer.
