Shabby Tea Room #120 / Ribbon Reel #31- Tea Party
So much for the lazy days of summer. I have been so busy lately and there has been very little "me" time. My son is going to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico so we are trying to get him geared up with everything he needs to "live off the land". He has been officially dubbed "trip photographer" so I expect I will have lots to scrap when he gets back. I am going to miss him so much!!
I am still working with our 5 month old puppy - she has lost two of her canines this week - so hopefully there is an end in sight to her teething. She is a bundle of enery and requires a lot of attention!
I've had some fantastic news to report - I am having my first work published in the upcoming PaperCrafts Holiday Cards & More: Volume 7 on sale August 25. As if that wasn't fantastic enough I made the cover - it will feature three designs including one from Chan Vuong!
I used the color combination from The Shabby Tea Room challenge, and the photo from The Ribbon Reel as inspiration for the card I made today. I love the photo of the three girls having a tea party! Isn't that the sweetest? I took the colors from their feathery hats to color my tea service and tried to keep the papers and trims more fun (like the striped twill) for the little ladies, and less elegant and formal.
My daughter used to love dressing up in one of her Disney princess outfits, floppy hats and feather boa's and make us all sit down for a civilized tea party - even though some times it was just kool aid in our tea cups! She is all grown up now in college, but she still loves apple tea in a cup with a saucer with a few sugar cubes on the side! Ooohhhh and we can't forget a plate of sweets now can we?
Thanks for having a peek! Have a beautiful day!
