Sarah's Cards Challenge. We Are Amused!

It's been a while since I last blogged but I have been busy preparing the family (and myself) for when I go into hospital for an operation on my spine next week. Making sure they have food (that my husband can make or reheat!) and getting all the kids school stuff done for next week. Phew! Us women just don't have time to be ill or incapacitated do we?
Anyway I couldn't miss out on Sarah's Cards June Challenge so I made the time to finish my page before I disappear in case I don't get a chance later.

Here is this months sketch and I have flipped it once clockwise to accommodate my photo's.
The photo's are of my girls humouring me by posing on a little throne in Norwich Castle and I even got them to wear some of the props!
I remembered that I had a Sizzix die of a crown and I was thrilled to use it for the first time in years!

The title was made from some fuzzy letter stickers that I am running out of (sad face) most of the letters are whole but I had to cut up a Q to make the U. I wanted to play on the quote from Queen Victoria 'We are not amused' as the girls are pretending to be royalty and we were thoroughly amused by Norwich Castle.

This is a picture of the top corner cluster. You will have to excuse the washed out look as the sun decided to peek out from behind the clouds for just a second as I took the photo!
Sarah's Cards always has a great challenge and fantastic prize so why not head over to her blog and check out the details of the challenge and see the DT's wonderful layout's too. Just click HERE.
