Presenting Princess Pretty Petals Tiara

Word spread throughout the land that a TIARA was to be created for Princess Pretty Petals.

All the courtiers and jewellers gathered together to make sure this was a tiara fit for Royalty.

The rarest jewels were chosen, the finest textiles from France and the finest chandelier dismantled

..........oops........ stop the flowery music, (sound of smashing glass) don't tell anyone or it'll

be " off with er ed!!"

Thank you to Hollydoodle Designs for coming up with this swap, it was a great idea and has allowed all of us taking part to escape into a land of fantasy - eat your heart out Cinderella -we are all going to the Ball:))

My daughter has a prom to attend in a couple of weeks -I offered my tiara but she said

'NO WAY' ... some Cinderella's just don't know they're born.

Go see the fun on flickr - The Crown and Tiara swap group .

Hope I got it right for you Heather.:))

Hi Ginny,
I agree with Heather - your tiara is divine!!! She is a very lucky Princess!

I love the chandelier drop on the front, twinkling like a huge diamond.

Looks like you had such fun with this project. I really MUST make time for myself to join in some swaps...

What a pretty young lady, how proud you must be.
Pebble would love a tiara (it would get covered in mud and sticky goo, but she would love it!)
Thanks for adding me to your sidebar, I'm just off now to add you too.

Oh my Ginny how absulutely wonderful is your tiara! Divine indeed! I knew you'd make something marvellous! And your daugther looks stunningly beautiful in that picture! Love it! I have to try to make a tiara too, I made two crowns so far but they look more like pope hats to me and I'm not content with them although my newphew loved them, but he's a kid and more easy to please. Hugs Carol xox
