The Shabby Tea Room #195
It feels good to be back. We were out of town most of last week visiting my son at college. The motel had the worst WiFi ever. Luckily I had scheduled a couple of posts for while I was gone. I could barely look at anything and I certainly could not leave comments on anything, which I really enjoy doing.
Anyway, my first project back; The Shabby Tea Room Challenge.
Here is the inspiration photo:
There is kind of a lot going on in the photo.
I saw gold, pink, black, a touch of silver and sheet music.
They asked us to include a tag.
So I made this tag:
It is hard to see but the paper is a subtle gold.
First I stamped the sheet music:
then embossed the wreath and bow from an Avery Elle set:
Embossed the sentiments in gold.
Painted some small SC wooden stars with my silver Krylon pen,
a pretty pink and silver bow and we are good to go:
Funnily, when I looked at the photo again after I was done, I noticed the blue.
It hadn't even registered before.
My son goes to college in Flagstaff at Northern Arizona University, NAU. He got a job down there and couldn't come home for Thanksgiving. We have hosted Thanksgiving, about 15-20 people, for the last 27 years. We had to let everyone down a little (I hope).
So we drove down to Flagstaff (11 solid hours of driving), stayed 3 days and drove home.
It was all worth it to see my son.
We took a drive to Sedona on Friday.
All of the touristy shops kind of turn me off, but it is so gorgeous there.
Here is a photo of my 3 guys (DH & sons) there:
