Diamond Jubilee

Hi Everyone. How is your week going so far?

This year is the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and although I am not particularly a Royalist,
we will with the rest of the UK celebrate. On 5th June we get a National day's holiday.
Lots of things are planned across the UK including lots of street parties.

When I saw the challenge over at My Creative Time was to use a frame,I knew what my theme would be for it. I wanted to make a shadow box frame which will be part of our decorations.

Can you see the embossed postage stamp on the (recycled - old cricut cart packaging) acetate?


Art Philosophy - frames and base cut at 5"
DP - Tim Holtz - Kraft Resist
Background stamps and embossing - Papermania Urban Stamps - Portobello Road
Papermania postal embossing folders and Union Jack Button
4th of July twine
Build a Banner Kit & TeenyTag Greetings -My Creative Time
Key charm(which in my mind reminds me of a sceptre!..Yes,I have a vivid imagination! lol)
from my craft stash
Acetate recycled from packaging
Lots of ink and 3d foam

I am entering this over at My Creative Time - Throwback Thursday -use a cricut frame.
Little Scrap Pieces - Use a bow.
 FCCB - Save The Earth Cricut Crawl.
