Royal wedding hat challenge
Ivette Cardoso's entry for the Royal wedding hat challenge -- what fun!

I definitely planned to stay home and watch the Royal Wedding all day. Then out of curiosity, I looked up the local watching parties in my area, and found one in a quaint club near where I live, where prizes will be awarded to those wearing the best royal wedding guest attire. Well, I just couldn't go without a proper hat, so one trip to Walmart and 2 hours later, I finished this creation out of a straw beach hat, which I painted and embellished with a large pin, flowers and colorful feathers. This hat has a special surprise. See all that long, blonde hair? It's part of the hat! My real hair is blonde, but it's a lot shorter. Best wishes to William and Kate!
