The Royal Wedding!

Good Morning Everyone!

Today I have Royal Wedding Fever! :)

Now I think most of you know that I am a Brit who lives on the West Coast of America. I have to admit I have a soft spot for all the pageantry and ceremony of the Royals and on Friday I have my DVR set to record 16 hours of coverage of the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Maybe a little excessive (He! He!) but I do not want to miss one little bit. I am excited :)

When Princess Diana and Prince Charles tied the knot I was also on the West Coast of America, in So. Cal. and back then a group of my Brit. girlfriends and I got up at 2am to watch the coverage live and a fun little party we had too!

So, to celebrate the Royal Wedding this week I thought it would be fun to have a little pop quiz every day and on Friday the person who gets the most answers right will win this :)

"Lovely Pink Peony" by Teresa Chipperfield

This beautiful Spring photo is an 8" x 10" in a black 11" x 14" matt board that really makes the beautiful Pinks POP! (ready for framing :)

So, join the fun, here are Today's questions;

1). In What Church will Prince William and Kate Middleton get married?

2). Who will be Prince William's Best Man?

3). When did William and Kate announce their engagement?

4). What will Kate Middleton's title be when she is married?

5). What is the name of the home where Prince Charles lives?

6). Where did Prince William and Kate Middleton first meet?

Write your answers in the comment section and I will announced the winner on Friday, Please share this too! Have fun! Good Luck! :)

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

T what a clever contest/giveaway. Your photo prize is gorgeous and you have such a good eye when it comes to the final composition of your photos. The cropping of the peony is perfect and just beautiful. Wish I could grow peonies here but our soil is all sand and I doubt they would grown in our heat and humidity.
