Since I started doing cards, the first cards I made were for the Fair and each year I do hundreds, for just this one day. Its said to be the largest Childrens fair in Europe and is something you have to see.
Each school child has a part to play, and this year the Queen is from my sons school, so extra busy time!
Each child has a role to play, outfit to waer and an arch to be built. The arches can range from a few figures in the garden, to house frontages the the queens house, where the arch is as big as the house and costs thousands of pounds to build.
You will have heard me saying what a lovely person Wendy over at the clip art fairy is, well this is one of the many reasons. These little ladies come in pink and purple, and lots of dresses the kids wear are white and this would be perfect in white. So I emailed Wendy and explained and just like magic, a beautiful little White lady appeared the next day. THANK YOU Wendy, now life has become so much easier lol x
These two are for 2 little girls at my sons school and there brother is also a herold
