A Day of Royal FUN!

It's here, the day we've been waiting to arrive for months!!
The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton!
The wedding ceremony is beginning over in England and our Royal Wedding Blog hop is underway with lots of beautiful creations to look at and some Royal Treats along the way!!

So, let me start if off with a card that I made for the Royal Couple.



Next is a scrapbook page that I made. This layout will hold a photo of the Royal Couple on their wedding day! I can't wait to see that DRESS!



Here are some closeups of the details...





Here's another whimsical card I made for the couple highlighting Catherine's Prince Charming!



And lastly, here is a layout of my family's Princess Catherine Elizabeth!



The Royal Treats!!
I'll be giving away two stamp sets. The first set is Peachy Keen Stamps Boy Mates Face Assortment. I used them on both of my cards.



The second set is from Emma at My Creative Time! She is letting me give away one of her "My One and Only" stamps sets. It is gorgeous and perfect for this hop! Thank you so much EMMA!!



Now, all you have to do is leave me a comment letting me know your favorite part of Will and Kate's wedding or your favorite memory of any Royal Wedding and you'll be eligible for both random drawings! Then check back on Saturday, April 30th when I announce the winners!!

Now on to the HOP!! You next stop will be over the pond to my good friend Viv!! Straighten your tiara, make sure your cup of tea is hot and prepare yourself for some beautiful creations!!

I haven't seen much of the royal wedding YET - I've only been awake about 10 minutes... but already my favorite part is waking up at 6:30 to find my 8 year old SON already up and watching the festivities since 6am. ;)

Your projects are really cute - Thanks!

I love the whimsical feel of your projects, but the first one is absolutely adorable.

I loved seeing the dress, but I really liked it when William saw her in it for the first time. That moment is always a special moment in any wedding. Watching William's wedding brought back a few memories of his parents' wedding. I wish them both the best.

Lillian Child said...

Oh my favorite part this morning was when they came onto the balcony and the look on her face when she saw the crowd and mouthed OH WOW!! And seeing that darling Prince William hold her, he was so affectionate! He treated her the way his mother wanted to be treated herself. Loved it! My other favorite memory was watching Princess Di ride in the carriage..she was so happy that day.

Tammy (P.M.S) said...

I think this is a brilliant idea for a blog hop. :) My favorite part (actually watching it again) were the little private moments (stares, whispers, comments) the two of them made to each other from start to finish of the ceremony to the ride back to The Palace to the balcony KISSES from them riding away in the Aston Martin. :)

Love the layout and cards!!!! I had to work, but did tape the entire thing, I loved her dress and when he saw her for the first time he told her she looked beautiful. I think my favorite was the kiss! When they stepped out and she said "Wow" I only wsh the kiss would have been longer!

What adorable layouts and cards. I loved it that you had a party..how cute!! My favorite part of the wedding was that William had to ask the Queen for permission to kiss Kate in public and he did it twice. Anyhow, the stamp sets are just so adorable. I don't have either one so they would be amazing to add to my other PKS. Thanks for the giveaway. Terri of www.twopinkpeas.blogspot.com Terrico3 at ameritech dot net

I finally got my computer back up and running - looks like you had a LOT of fun during the wedding. I missed the whole thing because of computer problems (gave up TV when I lost my job), but a friend taped it and she surprised me by inviting me for dinner tomorrow to watch it! So far, my favorite picture is the kiss.
