Sunday Tea Time - Layout

I love the smell of tea bags.  You could find me in the tea aisle looking through the boxes for longer than normal.  I don't drink it as much now but I remember how comforting it was.  It was the first thing I reached for when I had a cold.

This week my color inspiration comes from Color Me Scrappy.  I don't think I would have used these colors together on my own.  I didn't realize how much of my stash fit the color profile.  The twist was to incorporate the work NEW - N for new scrapbooking supplies (I used Basic Gray papers) E- the number eight stamp I used in my layout background (to the far left of the photo).  W - for wood veneer shapes I don't get to use very often.

My sketch came from Sketchabilities.

I am also linking to Lasting Moments challenge #186 "it's the little things that matter most."  In my case it's true.  I always look forward to having quiet time to reflect.

  5. I am a huge 'tea' fan too, so I understand loitering in the tea aisle. You can often find me looking longingly at beautiful tea sets, and dreaming of a life where I could enjoy high tea every day, LOL! (My drink of choice at the moment is lemon tea, but it changes all the time - I fluctuate between tea and coffee...) Anyway - the purpose for my visit is to let you know how much I LOVE your layout! Beautiful, fresh colours, just the right amount of whimsy, and the background remind me of tea-tags :)

  6. Soooooooo love this layout! Modern, fresh but oh so elegant too! Fantastic!
