Princess Paperdolls

It's hard to believe Princess Diana will be gone for 13 years at the end of the month. I think it is one of those moments where we all knew what we were doing when the fatal moment occurred. I had fallen asleep on my husband's shoulder and after he told me of my earring impression on his skin, he told me about Diana. I did not believe him. A true lady who died so young and a life so unfinished, Princess Diana will surely not be forgotten.
I was glad to hear her final resting place would be on a small island her family owned, that way the paparazzi would leave her be.

I enjoy hearing about the growth of her two boys even though some of it is not so nice.



I found these on the Internet, they can be copied as each, Diana being printed on cardstock and the clothing printed on paper. I wished I could find some casual wear like her sweaters but I guess the more glamor outfits will stick around.




If only she could be saved, I think though.....it wasn't meant to be....

P.S. Happy special day to my sister!

Thank you very much for the birthday wishes!

I had no idea you liked Princess Diana. I cried when Brian told me she died. We had just arrived in Germany for yet another tour and were squarely set in a huge hotel in a heat wave. It was so sad.

You know, I remember all those outfits. And I remember where I was when she died.
What a pity.

Hard to think it has been that long since the world stood silent. I always loved her beautiful clothes and the last one you show here is pure England with hat and all. I was so lucky to once be outside a church in London while wedding guests were going inside. I have never seen so many hats in all my life....

It's hard to believe it's been that long. A lose of life of a very beautiful, brilliant lady. I don't think she will be forgotten.

You are so good at finding the best stuff on the internet. Yup, I remember where I was when I heard the news. It was late evening and I was just going into Shaws. Funny Skeeter mentioned her wedding as I always think of you and Nana when I think of Diana as I think she got married on either yours of Nana's birthday. With yours on the 29th and Nana's 0n the 30th, I have now forgotten which one it was on. Old age is so much fun!!!
