Pin the Chameleon on the Princess......!

My darling granddaughter, Ada had her fifth birthday party yesterday, although her actual birthday isn't until Tuesday and my gorgeous daughter asked me could I make a 'Pin the Tail on the Donkey' game for the little ones to play.  

The theme of the party was Princesses and Princes and as Ada's favourite Princess is Rapunzel, I decided to have that as the theme of the game instead of an old donkey!

(Disney's) Princess Rapunzel's best friend up in that tower is a chameleon, who is in a lot of the pics with her, so I thought he could be 'pinned' on the princess.

It would have been a lot less traumatic and finished off a lot better if I hadn't completely forgotten about my promise to make this until the night before the party...!  A bit of a rush, you could say....   LOL!

It's a BIG piece of illustration board (probably 3ft x 2 ft) and the surface just soaked up my ink so, as I didn't want to waste my Copics, I resorted to copier inks and paintbrushes.  A bit rough but I quite like that about it!

Anyway, Ada loved it and that's all that matters to me...!
