Scrapbook Tuesday...Tea on Tuesday...T is for CwTch!

Hello there!

We have another bootiful day here in South Wales with temperatures very warm and sticky.  I spent a few hours this morning at the hospital where it was too hot in that waiting room.  Never mind ey!

Today is Tuesday and today I have a scrapbook layout to share with you along with my cuppa.  It is Elizabeth and Bleubeard's Tea on Tuesday today too.  I now have good 'ole Glengettie!  Our local Waitrose hasn't had any for a week or so and I had to revert to some alternative tea but yesterday Hubby managed to snaffle some Glengettie.  Phew!  The last stuff was not good!

It has been a little while since I have shared a scrapbook page mainly as I have been doing some sewing as well as making a journal for our upcoming trip later this year.  I will share that with you just as soon as I finish it.  I decided after spending most of Saturday at my friend's playing with the journal that I could have a change and do a layout...

I just love this photo.  It is my nephew and his wife and their lovely little boy...my first Great-Nephew who was born earlier this year.  The photo was taken by my nephew's other God Mother who is a photographer and when he shared it on Facebook I just couldn't resist downloading it.  

Here is my cup and some close ups of the elements on my page.  The papers are a mix of Kaisercraft (one of my favourites), Cordinations, K&Co and some Snippets.  Snippets being the tag above the photo, the rosette, the tag to the right of the photo and the tag behind the photo.  The creamy piece at the bottom of the photo with the sentiment on is the last of a well used and well loved K&Co pad.  Doubt I will be able to replace that one!
That rosette has been sat in my Tin of Shame for a little while.  I wanted to pick some of the yellow in the paper so I masked the photo with some, a yellow button and the rosette.    The written sentiment was typed and printed on my puter.
I used a mix of Tim Holtz and Hero Arts stamps and Brushed Corduroy DI.  You may just see two small pins in the tag and the buttons are from a mix of pots.  I just rummaged through until I found what I wanted.  The brad is ancient too and I no longer remember where it came from.
That Love is ancient but yet NBUS. 

So there you have it.  I text this layout over to my nephew and got a thumbs up, so I know he approves. Now I am going to link up with Tea on Tuesday and the Snippets Playground.  Feel free to join us with your cuppa or snippets.  Thank you for calling by.

I've never hear of Glengettie. I googled it and see it's aimed at the Welsh tea drinker. Thx for introducing me to a new tea :)

Thanks for sharing your beautiful layout to highlight the photo of your GN. So much detail and love went into it for sure!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Not being a scrapbooker, I can sit back and admire and appreciate all that went into this LO. The colors went well together, the designs were gorgeous, the overall design was SO well balanced, and that photo really completed the page. I was very impressed.

I also had not heard of the tea before, but I'm glad you found some you liked. That's how I am with my French Roast coffee.

Thanks for sharing the scrapbook page AND your new (to you) tea with us for T this Tuesday.

Such a beautiful and warm photograph and the layout you created, is as special as the actual photograph.
We had a very sticky night last night, slightly cooler this evening.

You created a very interesting scrapbook layout. I don't do that sort of thing but can appreciate the talent you have for it.


Rita said...

I had never heard of Glengettie tea...so I googled it. Amazon sells it here and says it's made in Wales. Interesting! Anyways, I love that photo of them all!! And the page you made with it is just perfect.
Happy T-Day! :)

Lovely page and even more beautiful photo! I enjoy your scrap book pages.

Karen Petitt said...

I am reasonably sure I have some of the papers you have used on the front of this, waiting in the never ending pile of papers to be used up!
It's a really beautiful photograph and I think you have made a really stunning layout - love it! Karen xx

lisa said...

What a gorgeous photo, no wonder you had to scrap it. Love the LO, those papers are yum.
It's a nightmare when you can't get you favourite tea isn't it. I've had to cut down the amount I drink so the bags last ages now!!!!
Hope you are enjoying this fantastic weather.
Hugs Lisax

Gorgeous!!! Love that wonderful background paper and love this whole layout.
The twine wrapped round and tied looks great and good for you to manage to work in the yellow...
The matting is perfect with this yellow rosette.

PS Love that you call it the tin of shame! lol

Debs Willis said...

I can see why you liked that photo so much, it's lovely. Great scrapbook page, really like the way you've mixed the colours so well, including the shameful rosette lol!
