366 Journal July. No Olympic Torch!


Nice and early with my 366 Journal :-) I'm not too happy with the colour scheme for July but decided to leave it.  I used Ecoline inks and salt (if you want more info about these and how best to use them check out this blog http://stampingmathilda.blogspot.co.uk/2007/02/ecoline-and-stamping.html; while you're there have a look round her blog, she does fantastic stuff) For more about the 366 challenge pop over to Kate's and find out.
On Monday I watched the Olympic Torch passing from Dewsbury on it's way to Wakefield.  I managed to get quite close to the carrier (sorry don't know who it was even though I've looked online as several people carry it through each town) I had to stoop and squeeze between people and got a really good close-up.
This is the picture, no, really! - it's just that she happens to be behind this lady who walked past just as the shutter on my phone camera went off unfortunately it's a slow shutter speed
 :-(
Then I tried again and got the policeman.






Some of the crowd lining the street.

EDITED: Oops the eagle-eyed amongst you may notice I've got the dates wrong :-/ I have amended them now.

Ha ha! I love your photo of the Olympic torch!! Actually the police on bikes made our day when we went to see the torch, we even got a high five!
Oops! Here I am sneaking in at last minute for the calendar challenge! Well, it’s still July isn’t it?! I love your pages - even the colour scheme for July. I haven't used my Ecoline inks for ages - I'll have to dig them out again.
Well done for keeping up so far!
