Jubilee party scrapbook layout

One of our favourite things about events like the Diamond Jubilee Street Party is the chance to get together with our friends & neighbours!

We love the mini union jack bunting, held in place with brads, and her egg & spoon race brings back fond memories of school sports days! Thanks for joining the party Ifa x
