Tea Time with My Scrapping Sisters

Tea Time with My Sisters

As a former wedding and event planner, I love themed crops. Whether it’s for 2 or 202 guest; I love themed crops. I host monthly crops in my home and there is always a theme!! When my children were younger, I was the hostess with the mostess. From their 1st to their 21th birthdays, there was a theme. It took several weeks; even months to plan; but it was always fit for the children of royalty.  So the sisters of RSC-DPS Nashville deserve the same careful planning. Below is a two page layout  of our Tea time Crop hosted by one of our charter sisters.

This paper was given to me by Sharon James. As is, it was ugly paper. I asked her for it knowing that it was ugly with possibilities. I tore it several times and attached it to plain white paper and inked the edges.

This paper has a fabric feel and inked very well.

The "Crop Queen" tag is from Karen Foster. It was $4 bucks; which is more than I like to pay for any single embellishment. I was "saving" it for a special project...this may be that special project. I'll have to think about it some more before I take the plastic film off. Know what I mean?

I'm learning to layer elements. I'v always thought layering made a layout junkie and took away from a photo, but I'm slowing moving to the layering side.

The Scrap Zone sticker is from a Karen foster sticker set that I purchased at a store in Pigeon forge.
This was a fun layout. I choose to use a 3 corner punch to bring even more accent to the photos. I didn't want over power the pages with lemon, kiwi  and celery colors; which is why I matted some of the photos with glittery green paper. I also added blue buttons and various embellishments to also break up the lemons and celery colors

Thanks for sharing Tea Time
Be Blessed and Be a Blessing...
