The photos were taken last summer when the Queen visited Stamford as part of her Jubilee tour. I'm not a Royalist but you couldn't help but get caught up with the excitement buzzing around the town that day. Someone people reserved their spots near the barriers in the morning ready, shops including ours closed for an hour or so so we could see her, school children filed down with their schools to catch a glimpse, it was amazing and over in a matter of seconds as she drove past waving! Typically I was on the wrong side of the road so I only got a photo of her arm and her lady in waiting but never mind.
I used a sheet of Papermania Portobello Road paper and various different scraps to make up the red & blue, the white was made up from a white card stock background and doilies. I tried to make a rosette type embellishment to add in some banners as well as the larger banner to put the title on.
For my alphas I used (in order) Pebbles, American Crafts Nutmeg thickers, Echo Park, and finally Lilybee Designs for the date.
Love & hugs
