Scrapbooking Tuesday...T is for Two Hundred and Fifty Years!

Hello There!

Tuesday is here again.  Time to share my Scrapbooking Tuesday post with my friends Bleubeard and Elizabeth at T on Tuesday HERE.  Yes, I have done a Scrapbook Layout - first one in ages! 

So here is my mug filed with Blueberry and Apple Twinings Tea. 

And my Layout...
The photo was taken in August 2010 when the firm I work for was celebrating 250 years in business!  We are the oldest Law firm in Wales.  

The VOS Celebrate card pulls out and I have included the names of all the Peeps for future reference.  I cut the text using my Cricut and the black piece is Papermania which has the corners chomped.  The paperclip is from Ikea and the ticket is Tim Holtz. 

I have a NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) on this layout - the corner stencil I bought as a result of seeing another one of Imagination Crafts and when looking at the website I could not resist this one.  I used Sweet Poppy copper embossing paste.
The hand and typewriter were stamped onto Snippets so I can take this down the Snippets Playground.  The typewriter stamp is another NBUS - I have had it ages, but not used it - oops!

If you are still looking for yours truly, here I am under the green Family sign! Appropriate really as at the time I did work in the Family Department!

And here is the typewriter stamp along with the pencils stamp.  Isn't that divine?  My buddy Kim sent me that last year after she had been to a stamp show - another NBUS.  I hadn't realised until I stamped it that there is wording on the pencils. 

So that is my layout for this week.  I am off to Tea on Tuesday, Snippets Playground and the all new, all singing NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) Challenge with my mate Darnell!   

Thanks for popping by.

Here chicky-chicky! Love the mug, especially because it has the wording around the inside.

You put a LOT into that layout. You have so much attention to detail, and is that a question mark (clip) over the word "trust?" That made me laugh. I had NO idea you worked for a law firm, and one with huge history, too.

Thank you for sharing your tea and layout with us for T this Tuesday.

Another beauty Sam. You have a talent for these! You seem to delight in fining the perfect embellishments and your books show that skill off so nicely!

Your tea is pink! And what a lovely cup! We're having so much rain around here, but I think pink fruity tea in a butterfly mug might give me hope for sunshine :)

Hi Hettie, thanks for sharing your beautiful scrapbook page today. I need to get back into scrapbooking myself. It's been a while! And I love the whole concept of NBUS - that's a new one to me but a brilliant idea, because you know we all have NBUS!!

Great Lay-out Hettie! 250 years is an amazing thing! LOVE that typewriter stamp and the corner stencil is fantastic!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Having just seen your sweet smile on the crop photos, I picked your nose immediately, Sam!!

The layout is really fabulous with those law firm symbols of typewriters, pencils, pointing fingers, and paperclips twisted about nervously. It's so fun that we share this profession! Although, if I may say, you folks all look REALLY great for being over 250 years old!!

Thank you, matey, for following, spreading the word about my NBUS Challenge, putting my button on your salad bar, and linking up your brilliant page!! I appreciate it all!! See you on the Playground. If we're lucky, there'll be a new girl to put on the Don Key!!) Hugs, Darnell

Rita said...

Wow! 250 years in business! Nice scrapbook page.
Happy T-Day! :)

Shana M said...

(Oh, and go Geocaching on your own if you have to-- there is always other Cachers out and and about!)

And hugs to Dobby!!!

Great scrap booking creativeness. A treasure to be sure.

Denise Price said...

Hi again! Thanks for your nice comment on my scrapbook page. The lighthouse that you asked about is from an Australian manufacturer called Scramatts. You can find them online. HTH!

Di said...

Hi Sam

LOVE this layout - wonderful way to capture such a historic celebration. I spotted you too!

Hugs, Di xx

Oldest law firm in Wales is quite a claim to fame - congratulations to Gabb & Co! Cracking layout too - I love the stamps you've chosen, and the copper embossing paste looks stunning! Blueberry and Apple tea sounds nice, too - but I find all fruit teas taste the same after a couple of sips!

Woot woot . . . you're one of Darnell's winners Honey. Congratulations!
