A royal visit

This weekend Pixie Hill was bombarded with family. On Saturday we had a big fat meal for a belated birthday celebration for Nan Whit (aka my granny).

Whenever my gran comes for a visit the call goes out "Are you ready for the Queen's arrival?" or "Has the red carpet been rolled out?" We thought it might be a fitting theme for the evenings celebrations and so each of us contributed something to her royal highness. A robe from Auntie Liz, a sceptre from my mum, white gloves from Auntie Kath, and I contributed a paper crown. Here she is in all her glory...

And a better look at the papery crown made with Graphic 45 papers, May Arts ribbons, faux flowers and old buttons. See the complete material list at the bottom.
