Three Peaks Challenge!

This weekend, today in fact, four of my wonderful friends are taking on the Three Peaks Challenge. The challenge consists of climbing (and descending) three mountains, in three countries, in 24 hours. They'll probably be somewhere on mountain two by the time this is posted! It's an immensely tough physical and mental challenge where you have to battle sleep deprivation along with the changing elements. I definitely do not have the fitness levels required to join them on this adventure, so am getting involved in my own way - good luck nails!

As the challenge starts in Scotland at Ben Nevis, then moves into England at Scarfell Pike, and finally onto Wales to tackle Snowden, I chose to include the flags of each country in my design. Scotland and England are pretty simple, but Wales was a nightmare. A dragon, seriously, I thought flags were supposed to be minimalistic!!

I added the pink nails and ribbon to highlight the charity that all this is in aid of - Breast Cancer Haven, 'the only national charity that provides free, one-to-one, personal emotional and physical support and therapies to improve the lives of everyone affected by breast cancer'. Please donate to this brilliant cause and support the girls via their fundraising page here.
