Scrapbooking ~ For Queen & Country ~ Part 1

I've started another Scrapbook, this one is for Harry. It will chart his journey, from the day he took his Oath for Queen and Country, his journey through the Army Foundation College, Harrogate & his Phase Two training, that he is currently undertaking.
 I am using the Papermania Portobello Road Collection of papers and embellishments at the moment, but also have some other papers, that I will use later on.
The MDF initials EIIR, were purchased from ebay. They came plain and I painted them with a Gold Acrylic paint. I've used these as the cover page for the Album. They were stuck straight on to a dark Blue card, with a thick white PVA craft glue.
The first three pages, are dedicated to the day that Harry took his oath. There is a double page layout with Union Jack bunting that I downloaded from the internet. I've used tiny foam pads underneath the bunting to raise them above the photographs. For the third page, I layered Pennants of the different Papers, straight on to Red card. The little embellishment, in the top right hand corner, was made by using a Quickutz die, scrap paper and some bakers twine. I then made a concertina booklet, to hold lots more pictures and press cuttings. Which was then stuck over the Pennants, keeping all the pictures together and saving a lot of space in the album.
