The Queen's Diamond Jubilee

I decided in a moment of madness that I would organise an Afternoon Tea party for some of our neighbours to celebrate the Jubilee and at the same time, try and raise some money for a local charity, Willen Hospice.  Those of you who know me, know that I shy away for social gatherings so it was totally out of character for me and at times I wished I'd never sent out the invitations but I had and we had about 30 people coming so I had to make the best of it.  Of course none of it would have happened without my lovely family helping all the way.

The monthly challenge on UKs was JUBILATION so I made this page showing some of the photos from our party which incidently raised £148.33!




As I have lots more pictures I would like to use I might make this into a double page.

The weekly challenge was on a similar theme - use red, white and blue, 2 or more photos and journalling so I thought I'd use these photos which I took on saturday.  We were putting up the marquee in the front when we saw this "bike" coming towards us.  It was an entry into the local carnival and won first prize.  It was awesome, 4 people sitting down and 2 dogs in a cage at the back!

I have so looked forward to seeing the photos and scrapping of your party. I think you are brilliant for doing it!
The layouts are gorgeous (as usual!). I especially love the photo grid in that white space and the bunting and teapot just sets it off. Holly is so photogenic, you spot her straight away with that lovely smile :)
