Q is for Queen......

Letter Q this fortnight's chosen letter for the Alpha challenge
over at
Wow...The challenge end is in sight now!!
...and my Printers tray is brimming with Alpha goodies!
I'm amazed with myself (The procrastinating Queen!) for keeping up with this challenge, ....but soooooo determined not to miss one week of the alpha dictionary challenge.... and with only a few hours to go before the new challenge letter is announced, I had to get thinking cap on and create my 'Q' cubby...
I was inspired by the Pearly Queens of London
in their pearly button treasures!
and here is the result....

I went with the word
for this letter...So using one of the smaller cubbies this week....along with my distressed French dictionary definition, some old book paper....
I added a vintage crown adorned with pearly heart beads and a button.....and a 'Q' scrabble tile.
Sorry, if I have not been around to see your 'Q' words yet, been a busy few days here, with celebrations.....but I will try and catch up very soon
 to see what everyone else is doing with their  letter 'Q'.
 Thanks for peeking!
