Is it me or are Tuesdays coming round quicker this year? Here we are again on a Tuesday and I have another scrapbook page to share with you whilst you have a slurp of your tea. As usual I am playing along with Elizabeth and Bleubeard for T on Tuesday.
This layout shows my niece and nephew on Christmas Eve at my parent's home. The colours are not good and the second photo is more like the original. My sister and I arranged to meet there to have a bit of a get together and pressie swap. The last fews years one or more of us have been too poorly to go so it was nice to all make it there this year!
Why "Anticipation" you may be asking? Rhys and his wife were expecting their first child as its anticipated due date was approaching. Megan. Well she just likes pressies and wine! I splashed a little paint and swooshed some on the patterned paper. Then stamped with a star.
I am sharing some Dorset Tea with you in a Sophie Alport chicken mug. The tea was brought back by my neighbours in a gorgeous tin with chickens on it. My neighbour knew I would like the tin!
A close up of some of the elements on my layout. I used the TH lace die and some Snippets of paper to create a lace effect. The little piece of ribbon was cut for something else a while back so glad to be able to use it rather than lose it. The date stamp was sent to me by a very dear friend and is a Theresa Collins stamp.
I cannot believe how long ago I bought these reindeer. I think they were supposed to be table decorations but I knew they would look good as scrapbook embellishments. I was trying to pick out the reindeer in Megan's jumper.
I used some old brads and eyelets on the page. Great to use up old stash isn't it? The star stamp was a freebie with Craft Stamper. I cut the title out using my Cricut.
You can see the little word beads I used, again bought many moons ago. In fact the only new thing is the owl! It is rare to see Megan without a smile, but being a professional ballet dancer it is no surprise. Oh to be able to do what you love for a living!
Thanks for popping over. Please call by the Teahouse to meet other tea drinkers. Other beverages are available! Also feel free to join us at the Snippets Playground. New playmates are always welcome.
