The Shabby Tea Room #195

Hi there,
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:

 Thanks for stopping by, see you soon,
