Diamond Jubilee - Tag Tuesday

Hi everyone,

Hope everyone has been enjoying the Diamond Jubilee celebrations over the long weekend. Pity about the weather. I'm afraid I chickened out and stayed inside and watched all the celebrations on the T.V. Very nice they were too. The river pageant was amazing and the Queen proved she was made of stern stuff standing all that time on the royal barge and I  felt so sorry for the soggy singers in the Royal College of Music Chamber Choir. I read in the paper the next day  that they  were checked over afterwards for hypothermia. Congratulations to them for still putting on a good show.

The Queens Diamond Jubilee concert was a triumph too. I thought it was so funny when Alfie Boe performed his rendition of  Elvis'  'It's now or Never'. I rolled about with laughter. Lastly, was the service at St. Paul's Cathedral.  It was great to see the crowds come out to celebrate.

This weeks tag for Tag Tuesday is to commemorate The Queens Diamond Jubilee.

The union flag was made up of organza and muslin and attached to heavy interfacing with bondaweb. I then aged the tag with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and attached a crown from a pack of card making embellishments. The dates were printed onto cotton fabric with photo transfer paper and aged with Distress Ink. I then punched a hole and set an eyelet with my trusty crop-a-dile.

Hope you like this weeks tag. Just to let you know , I won't be joining in next week's theme for Tag Tuesday which is 'Camping'  because I have some other projects I want to work on but I plan to be back with the next weeks challenge which,  if my memory serves me right, is 'Green'.

Bye for now x


  1. I like the aged look of this tag. Shame you can't 'carry on camping' but will be looking forward to seeing what you do for 'Green' :0)
