TCP Tuesday 214: You Blow Me Away!

I can vividly remember watching the 1984 Summer Olympics and there began my love of The Games! It probably had something to do with my secret crush on gymnast, Mitch Gaylord, but who can forget Mary Lou Retton, Greg Louganis and Carl Lewis?! My brothers and I would record our favorite events on VHS tapes and watch them again and again. The dream was alive and is alive for the upcoming Olympics in London kicking off next month. In honor of that, I took this week's TCP Tuesday challenge "You Blow Me Away" and went Olympic with it, because everything about the Olympic Games blows me away!

Our USA biking bunny is from Wheel Love, all pimped out with star studded wheels to show his pride. I originally saw the red telephone box at the online Silhouette store and set out to make one of my own using the CutUps Window die. I ended up with a hybrid phone booth using both the CutUps Window die layered on the Silhouette phone booth base because I wanted that rounded top. I just couldn't resist adding a Buckingham Palace-type gate, so I again went to the Sihouette store and chose this fence.

Here's a closer look at the embossed crown at the top of the phone box and Good Luck sentiment which are both from Simply Said. The USA postage uses CutUps Stamp Trio in combination with Babydoll Alphabet and 2012 and star stamps from Build A Bingo. One of the required elements for the challenge is to use either the CutUps Cloud or Pinwheel die, and since I couldn't decide which to choose,  I used them both!

I thought the flower pot that comes with the CutUps Window die would act perfectly patriotic as a holder for the mini pinwheel and stars. The heart and star stamps are from Admit One.

I hope you've enjoyed my tribute to our 2012 Olympic Team competing in London this summer and find time to cheer them as well! Be sure to stop over at Susan's blog for complete TCP Tuesday details, and then you all have a great week! Go USA!
