U is for Uniform

Hello there, it's Horace here with you today to show you my page which I created for the Alpha Challenge over at The Craft Barn. The chosen letter this fortnight is U.
At first we thought we only had one letter with which to create our page, due to using a miniature French/English dictionary, along with our inadvertent theme of using only words that translate the same in both languages, so after a short discussion with Podgy,

we agreed I should take a turn at the desk. I decided that my word, Uniform, called for some camouflage type splats, this was great fun, until I looked at the wall and realised I had also camouflaged that, cue some desperate rubbing at the wall before Wilbear noticed!!!

Once I'd cleaned the wall, and the desk, I stopped to inspect my page....ooh splatty!

I found an old Jolees boutique army uniform sticker, and along with some Dylusions stamps and poetic license, I created this

Can you see my army frog? Well of course you can't he's camouflaged!!

Note the manipulation of the army uniform arm to enable Sergeant Frogman to point to the word and definition, which, by some miracle I managed to leave relatively unsplattered.

This was such a lot of fun to create, oh, if you like challenges, why not take a look at ours, which is literary based. You don't have to read the chosen book, as we provide quotes for inspiration. Take a look at ourJune challenge if you like. We'd love for you to join in.
With love from the bears
