Wedding Day

Yesterday, at school we marked the occasion of the Royal Wedding with a garden party. The highlight of the party was when one of the teachers, wearing her wedding dress, appeared on the balcony with her husband. They were married last summer and Anna was delighted to have another opportunity to put on her lovely dress. They wore William and Kate masks and there was no convincing some of the younger boys that they really hadn’t seen a princess!a royal wave

Today, Jan and I cropped at Jendenink. We watched the wedding on TV there and I scrapped some of the photos from yesterday.

Tag Making at Jendenink


5 Last Thursday Jan, Sarah and I spent a happy day crafting at Jendenink in Fareham. Jen showed us how to make these gorgeous Tim Holtz-style tags. We got very messy, not usually my thing, but the results were well worth it. If you’d like more details about what we did and how we did it, pop over to Sarah’s blog.

Thanks for visiting.
