Where did you get that hat?

This was me on Royal Wedding Day yesterday.  In a rather silly but fun top hat with a blue veil.  I would like to say I made it (I'm sure I could!) but no, it was brought from a shop locally.

This is my husband wearing it!:
He's not only looking glum because of the hat, or that he wasn't quite so much into Royal Wedding as some, but rather because he hurt his leg quite badly in the Street Party's Spacehopper race!:
I've also got a shot of him at the moment that his 'horse' chucked him off, but I'll spare him that embarassment. 

We had a fun time at my inlaw's street party (but the decorations didn't quite match the standard of the one's in my previous post, the 1977 Silver Jubilee). They had lots of races, some for the little children and some for the big!  I was in a dress so couldn't really join in.

Our sons dressed up for the part too:
(The 'pretend stamp' effect was created using Picnik)
My Congratulations and Best Wishes to the Happy Couple.  The wedding was absolutely brilliant!

Finally, a craft.
I created these notebook covers using a children's paint splatter kit,  bought cheaply at a charity shop.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend, 
Thank you for looking and for any comments,

Love your royal wedding mug!!

Thanks for the comment on my blog... in response to your question about the instax films... they are coloured films so come like that! There are 10 in a film all different colours.

I tend to buy them from ebay,

That is just an example, there are loads of different sellers on there so have a look around and see what you like!

I hope that helps
