Who dares wins

I was a bit stumped when I saw this week's Lasting Memories challenge... the theme is Favourite Game Show.   Ummmm???  Truth is, I'm not much into television game shows.  Even when we had a television (we don't, anymore) I never watched game shows. 

I was still determined to create a layout for this theme - and I really did find it a challenge!  So, I turned to my search engine and started browsing for Australian television game shows.  I eventually settled on Who Dares Wins and "borrowed" the title and theme for my layout.  The theme of that show was to 'dare' contestants to do various crazy stunts.

This is my layout:

The photograph is me, climbing the mast of a tall ship in Sydney Harbour. The black background is the underside of the Sydney Harbour Bridge; the photograph was taken just as we were passing under the bridge.  I have quite a number of photographs of the climb, which I will be scrapping over the next few weeks (which also explains my lack of journalling on this layout - the story will actually be told over a number of layouts).

I'm entering this layout at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Seeing Stars.  I was going to make a pennant shaped banner but I thought stars would be more fun; punching was also a quick and easy way to put some scraps to good use.  A little bit of penwork just inside the shape to add definition, and... done.
