Much excitement today - we're having a Street Party! Swapped one half of the family with another - daughter and her brood went home yesterday and now my son and his will be coming to join in the Jubilee party today - our bunting is up! Hubby was out at the crack of dawn to put the gazebo up. Road is partly closed, one of the cars moved to make way for gazebo and so we have wheels in case we need them parked outside the "zone".
A couple of months back, volunteers were sought to help with making the Street Party happen. I volunteered to do the name badges so this is the Name Badge Station.
I hastily had to make a Union Jack page this morning to pretty up my table. It was decided that the easiest way was to use sticky labels for the badges, but I couldn't just do plain labels - so there had to be some stamping somewhere!
I used the crown from Clearly from You , the balloon from Crazy for Cupcakes and the tiny cupcakes from Itty Bitty Bits stamp sets. The inks I used were River Rock, Real Red and Pacific Point.
We got some official coming to open it at 2.00 pm, so better get my togs on. Been here 12 years, and still haven't spoken to half the neighbours - it's just so lovely to get together on an occasion like this and say "hello" !!
