CSI Challenge # 22 'Reluctant Royal'

Hello and happy Jubilee weekend to all of you in the Commonwealth :0) a bloody shame that it is cold and wet here in England!!

As soon as I saw the challenge this week at CSI I had to take part! I have been meaning to return for ages but life always gets in the way and something happens to put the kybosh on it :0(

So, seeing as how we are celebrating our Queen's 60 years on the throne, an idea that CSI are embracing, it was only right that I do a layout using their fabulous Coordinates and photo booth app photos of DGD at her nursery Jubilee party :0) Why reluctant? Because DGD was not sure that a red cloak was suitable attire for a girl 'are you sure that the Queen has a red cloak Mamma? I think red is for Kings'....!!!!!

I used my makeshift corrugated cardboard stamp for the background and Tattered Angels Chalkboard mist

one of the lovely bits on the Coordinates sheet :0)

Pink Paislee banner, Prima fabric letters (misted) Cosmo's Tiny Type letters

Pink Paislee music stamp - journaling card is tucked in behind the paper strip
The Case File that has inspired it all

So glad to be back....I have missed you CSI!!

Thanks for popping in,
