This fortnight we want to see you bear it all so bears in all shapes, sizes colours and hues are the order of the day.
I used a quick card and paper from the Boys to Men CD to create a scrapbook page about a Teddy Bears picnic some of us participated in. It all started when we found some old photos of us on a 'George Harrison' tour of Liverpool to mark his birthday. It had been pouring down in teh morning and whilst we waited for the tour bus we took refuge in the Beatles story and they had just taken a delivery of Beatle Bears so we all bought one of course the George Bears were very popular considering it was mainly George fans assembled and we took photos of the Bears at various landmarks in Liverpool which were related in some way to George. when we came across the photos we were remembering all the fun we had with our bears and our tour guide from that day Jackie Spencer came up with teh idea of the Teddy Bears picnic. We all met at Sefton Park Palm House a building that George donated money to restore to its former glory. So here we are with our bears on the day.
I included a copy of the lyrics to 'Teddy Bears' Picnic' and that's where I took the title from.
Behind the picture of Jackie I have used the lovely Teddy Bear weave paper from the family picnic folder - I also included one of the quick cards from the same folder to show the Teddy's setting off on their picnic or they could be going home as 'tired little teddy bears'
