**Cybercrop Challenge 2** JUBILEE BUNTING

Welcome to the start of your Saturday cybercrop as with kick off with a BUNTING challenge.

Recently the Jubilee saw an array of Union flags (or Union Jacks) on display in many homes, in shops and streets, so we challenge you to add some bunting to a project. Again our design team have some projects to share illustrating how they rose to the challenge which we hope you will play along with.

With the recent Diamond jubilee it seemed only fitting that my bunting challenge should be themed in this way. The photos were taken just before the jubilee on a visit to London to meet some dear friends from Texas. I was delighted to see all the flags and bunting everywhere in London. This is a really simple page made with a sheet of white card with a union flag design applied with distress stains mounted on a sheet of blue Bazzill. The bunting is made with left over photo printing paper and the whole page is then finished by adding journaling and doodling, some Prima 'Say it in crystals' and white 'Jewellery box' Thickers.

I love adding bunting to my projects, for this challenge I decided to go off the page, and make a frame for our house. I die cut some Home Sweet Home tags and then use Crate Papers Farmhouse collection to make the backing papers (which I also stitched). I hung my bunting and added a few stickers to complete it.

Another Jubilee example, this time featuring papers by 7Gypsies Postale collection

By Mel Hand - Jubilee Street Party.
And yet another Jubilee layout! This time Mel uses a clean graphic style to document a trip to a local street party. Mel used off cuts of neutral paper and cardstock to create the bunting triangles and accented them with red white and blue decorative elements.

This challenge is open until 6pm on Sunday the 1st July 2012 so plenty of time to play along and share your bunting projects using our inlinkz tool to be in with a chance to win something in our random prize draw. First class of the day will be up at 10am with Ann and a Simple Stories project to tempt you. See you back here then.
