The Shabby Tea Room is celebrating its first birthday with a party. We're to create something to celebrate the occasion, and there are lots of prizes from the Tea Room sponsors.
The Shabby Tea Room has some new features including a feature list of Shabby Girlfriends. I discovered I'm one of them because last fall I was chosen as one of Tea Time Terrific Top Three for a challenge I entered. So of course I had to celebrate!
I enlarged and printed the Shabby Tea Room logo tea pot, traced it onto cardboard and cut it out. I covered it with one of the My Mind's Eye Pretty Please Spring Papers. It's almost identical to the Shabby Tea Pot in color and design. I ran the paper through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder, just to give the pot a little extra pizzazz. Then I outlined the pot with Adirondack Metallic Pearl Paint Dabber. The My Mind's Eye paper pad also included some paper embellishments so I cut out the oval and the tag. I added Pink Paislee Enchanting alphas, and decorated them with a white Signo pen. You can't have a party without tea in the teapot, so I'm brewing up some Shabby Girlfriend Celebration tea, as stated on the teabag tag. A genuine vintage button adorns the teapot lid. I've decorated the teapot with lace and Prima flowers. I love how the squiggles look like steam coming from the spout.
Debbie's challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room Week #53 Party Time
Update: I'm one of the 12 Honorable Mentions from the 162 entries! And I won Melissa's Shabby Pocket!
Spring papers, spring flowers, I think this also qualifies for:
Vicki's challenge over at her blog The Cheerful Stamp Pad: Challenge #13 Is It Spring Yet?
because I'd ask you to sit a spell on my deck to watch the birds nesting and see the flowers blooming as we sip a spot of tea!
