It is Tuesday and time to share a cuppa with you at Elizabeth and Bleubeard's as well as a scrapbook page which I did on the weekend.
Now just to prove that I do own cups and saucers...
Isn't this cup and saucer just adorable? It is bone china and quintessentially British in design and make. It was part of a set which we had for a wedding present from a friend of my FIL's called Fritz. He was a very gentle and quietly spoken Austrian gentleman. I only ever met him twice and he bought us this set of cups, saucers, tea plate and cream & sugar bowl! A few years later, quite by chance, we managed to buy the teapot too in Hereford. As soon as I saw it I had to have it. It shocked Hubby yesterday to see me having my morning brew in it!
And on to my layout...
I joined a Facebook Scrapbook group and they had set a sketch. I still had some pieces of paper out from my Journal, which I have only just finished so yet to share with you, and so I just set too and used those...well it beats putting them away. Sorry I just realised the flash was on.
I could not get over the sheer size of the Colosseum when we were there. The films don't do it justice.
I cut the letters and numbers on the trusty Cricut. The little "spot" (NBUS - technique) is actually a disc from my medication that I covered in card then sanded down the edges before placing a Cavallini sticker on. The main paper is MME.
An arrow from the Tin of Shame over some Tim Holtz filmstrip held down by some VOS brads.
Here it is again without the flash. The papers are a mix of Tim Holtz, Papermania and K&Co, all pretty old.
The letters and other elements have had a brush (my finger actually) of Treasure Gold in Pewter rubbed over them. I spent a little while looking for a Romanesque quote to add in, just printed out and then stamped over with TH stamp.
And here is my little journalling card. I actually made it for my Journal but decided I needed more space on the card so discarded this one and made one with a narrower edging. However, it is just right for this project.
So off to join some friends having a Tea on Tuesday as well as the Snippets Playground, only the 12x12 piece isn't a Snippet!
Thanks for calling by. I shall pop along and see you this evening after I finish work.
