AN OLYMPIC TRIBUTE



OUR Track Club went to EUGENE Oregon for a Track meet back in April . We were able to live & breath the life of TRACK TOWN USA . While we were there, we spent some time honouring STEVE PREFONTAINE "PRE " an Olympic Legend from Oregon . Here is my "PRE " tribute chair that will be at our Track Fundraiser on Saturday . In celebration of the upcoming Olympics in London, we wish every athlete success in the Summer Olympic !!

I love how you used the sticky letters. I have never tried those. Thanks for linking up to Hot Fun in the Summertime. Have a wonderful week.

Kelley said...

Hello
You will need to get the letters off fairly quickly or they are difficult to get off . Have a great night , Kelley
