Around the world with Sir Stampalot

 Good Morning! It's the first of December and that can only mean one thing...time for another Sir Stampalot Challenge! This month we are looking for your creations that reflect travelling around the world. Here is my creation. I have gone for a Central American theme with a Kokopelli figure (KK Originals) stamped in stamp 'n' bond and rubbed over with gilding flakes (Crafty Notions). The background was made by stamping a leaf (Hero Arts) in versamark and brushing over with Blonde Moments pearl pigments in gold, copper and green. Now I've told you what I did, I'd better tell you what the prize is. Feast your eyes on this...
Impressive, eh? Wish I could enter myself!
So, If you want to be in with a chance of winning this fabulous prize, Make us something  that will take us off on a journey around the world (what a lovely thought!) Before you do though, pop over to the Sir Stampalot Challenge blog and get some inspiration from my mega talented teamies. Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. You will have to forgive me if I am absent from Blog land this week. It is Panto week at school. By the time you read this we will have done one Dress rehearsal and one evening performance with 4 more performances to go (one morning, two matinees and another evening). I may be face down asleep in my dinner on Friday, but I will have earned some serious retail therapy at Sir Stampalot's Ultimate Rubber stamping Demo day on Saturday, weather permitting! I need to shop, so come on snow, give us a break!
Update: No performances of our panto today, as although school was open there were lots of children off, including some of the main characters. We had a snowman building competition just before home time!
