Welcome to The Just Add Ink – Just Add Crowns Blog Hop.
Since 1917, the Sovereign has sent congratulatory messages to people celebrating notable birthdays and anniversaries.
Cards are sent to those celebrating their 100th and 105th birthday and every year thereafter, and to those celebrating their diamond wedding (60th), 65th, 70th wedding anniversaries and every year thereafter.
For many people, receiving a congratulatory card from The Queen to mark a significant birthday or wedding anniversary is a very special part of their celebrations. Delivery of congratulatory messages is arranged by the Anniversaries Office at Buckingham Palace.
The Queen’s congratulatory messages consist of a card containing a personalised message. The card comes in a special envelope, which is delivered through the normal postal channels.
At Just Add Ink this week, we are Celebrating the milestone of 100 Challenges. I don’t think we will be getting a Card from the Queen – however instead we have a Just Add Crowns Blog Hop for you.
For this Challenge I decided to put together a Scrapbooking Page. My inspiration actually came from Sarah’s Fifth Birthday Cake. It was all Pink with a Tiara on the top. The Tiara had flashy lights and fluffy feathers round it.
I also used one of Sarah’s Head Bands for inspiration. The band had broken and I’d asked Sarah if I could use it – I thought I could preserve it for her……. but I was not allowed!! So I had to make a paper copy of it. Funny though – after I had finished, I showed Sarah and she said…..”Ohhh I said you could use it”!!
