Romance is in the Air- The Queens Jubilee for Happy Daze

Hi, the challenge this month for Happy Daze is 'June Bug' and we would like you to share your insect inspired pieces with us.

My Design Team creation was inspired by The Queen's Jubilee celebrations in the form of Garden Parties.

I know I shouldn't say it but really love how this Hanging has turned out.  Hope you like it as well.

There is a £15 voucher to spend in the shop for the winner.  Just use an item that is available to purchase from Happy Daze to be eligible for the Prize Draw, you can enter via the Happy Daze Blog (see my sidebar) or Facebook.

I would also like to enter this into the http://crazy4challenges.blogspot.co.uk/ where they want you to add butterflies.

Wishing you all a very happy day and hope you will come and visit the rest of the Team's amazing creations. We are off this afternoon to a Family Jubilee Garden Party, lets hope it doesn't rain.  Thank you for popping in, hugs Annette xx
