The Bo'ness Fair

The Bo'ness Fair is the best day of the year in our town, Its a hard question to answer Whats better Christmas or the Fair? if you come from Bo'ness.  You dont even need to live here as all relitives from far and wide all come home for the Bo'ness Fair at some time.  If your kid is lucky enough to get a leading role in the Fair, you can be guarenteed viistor from America, Australia and all over.
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.

This is one of the cards for a lady in waiting.
Its is a princess from the clip art fairy

This one for a flowergirl.  Because I have hundreds to make, I need to keep them simple.
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
Alot of work for that family lol, but they also have a little brother who is at nursery and not old enough to be in the fair  but didnt want to leave him out!
So, lol they also asked me to a card for the little brother and he has been given the role as Chief Arch Builder pmsl and here he is x pmsl
Ther are lots of things on you tube for the fair but this is the link to the official website, I was on a couple of days ago to have a look and there is a new 2 part documentry on it for the 100th fair, , I laughed and cried all the way through it as everyone from Bo'ness does, tears to the eyes every fair when you hear the first band at 6am, wakening up the queen,  and the fact I knew nearly every one in it lol, here is the link, you should take a look, it is really an amazing day just scrole down to 100th Fair Queen. I would love to hear any comments you have.  Love Donna x

Hotch potch of things

This card I made for my hairdressers grand kids to give her. She is actually a VERY younge looking granny lol.  Its an easel card done in blue and lemon, not colours I use very often but loved using them, so fresh and cheery looking,  The topper of the lady is kanban I think, bought ages ago and lay in a folder ever since.
The 2 little skating girls represent wee Abbie & Chloe and the paper is on that one of the very talented ladies on the forum made and very kindly shared with us, Val I think- thank you x-.Theres a little bit of sparkle in the way of my all time favourite glamour dust, and there we go !

Fairy in the flowers

This little beauty is a new set I got from The clip art fairy I totally love it.
Its an interactive set and some new shape toppers I bought as well.
Isnt it cool the way the flowers stand up on the base of the easel card.
I like to really personalise all my cards so I made a smaller version of the shaper to act as a card stop and added the flowers further forward so I can still close the card in the traditional way.
The flowers lay flat to send and pop back up when released.
The card is an 8x8 easel, lots of glamour dust all done, hope you like it, Donna x
