The Shabby Tea Room – ‘Let’s Have Tea’ & The Friday Mashup No. 113

This week’s theme at The Shabby Tea Room is ‘Let’s Have Tea’. It is a photo inspiration challenge, and let me tell you, the photo made me want to put the kettle on and get out one of my favorite books.

Below is my interpretation of the challenge, I’d love to see what you all come up with.

Happy Crafting!


p.s. I am also submitting this entry to the Friday Mashup No. 113 ‘Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice’, because in my book there isn’t anything more girly or feminine then Tea Time. ūüôā

3 Challenges 1 Post – Well Sort Of…

So I was feeling a little behind this week and decided to go against my cardinal rule…and combine challenges. I typically like to take each challenge on it’s own, but this week has been a doozy! John had an angiogram on Friday, Ali graduated on Monday, and this weekend is the big graduation party!

Let’s just call it multitasking ūüėČ

I decided to combine the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, the color combo from Dynamic Duos and the element challenge from the Friday Mashup (which I totally missed-need to work on time management as well as multitasking).

Tada! Here is the result!

I can’t wait to see how all of you interpret these challenges, or how you too choose to multitask.

Happy Crafting!

Friday Mashup Challenge No. 108

This week at the Friday Mashup, Liliana Garcia¬†is hosting “Let’s celebrate the Grads!”. ¬†This is not only perfect timing because graduation season is approaching, but in less than 15 days my own baby girl will be graduating from high school. I can’t believe how fast time actually does fly.

The challenge guidelines this week are as follows:

1. Create a project for “Graduation”.
2. Create a project with “any kind of Embossing”.
3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with “Embossing for Graduation”.

Below is my take on the challenge, and I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy Crafting!
