Challenge #2 It's all relative.

Our family has always thought Mum looks like the queen.
The only one who can't see the resemblance is her.
Though she is 7 years older she is very similar in hairstyle,dress and general appearance.
 In this photo of her 21st(in 1939),I think she looks particularly regal.
I downloaded a picture of the queen and cut around it.I added pearl flourishes and embellishments and used Mum's favourite colour-blue.

(Yes, the ribbon and lace does run downhill! It was based on a sketch that did that.
I tried several times to stitch without the shadow on the left but those fabric brads are too high to flatten it any further.)

 I've included 2 more photos of Mum below so you can see it is not "a one off"All she needed on that picnic rug was a corgi to make it complete.

Terrific job with the challenge Julene! I agree, your mom has a great resemblance to the queen. I love how you fancied up the page with the scalloped border and pearls!

Wow - she really does look like the queen! Your layout has a nice regal touch too with the pearls and scallops and that background paper with the little starts/asterisks.

They truly do resemble each other! Nice little touch with the crown over her head, and I really was entertained by the other two photos in your post & the comment about the corgi, lol! Very sparkly page to play on QE's photo.

The crown over her head is the perfect touch for this fun layout. You know what a fan of QE I am!
