I am thoroughly enjoying how independent Isabella is becoming - particularly when she shows more "grown up" traits. Her new love is tea! Rooibos, obviously! This she gets from me, because I can easily drink 4 cups within the hour (only, I despise Rooibos - I'd much rather have an extra strong cup of English Breakfast).
Anyway, she was very 'chuffed' yesterday when she had her Very Own Teapot - all to herself. I shot of quite a few pics of her drinking her tea, adding (way too much!) sugar and "mixing" it.
When I got home and downloaded them, I realised that they would work perfectly with the latest sketch over at Scrap Your Story. I love the fact that I could choose 3 of my favourite shots from the tea-drinking sequence. Isn't it a lovely sketch?
I came up with the idea of the title - and then whilst scrimmaging through my ever-growing paper stash, I "found" my BoBunny range (which I'd been setting aside for a 'special occasion' - I still don't know why I bother doing that!). Anyway, amongst this collection were plenty of teacups and on the sticker sheet, was a little saying "you're just my cuppa tea". WELL. If the pics and the paper were not a match made in proverbial!?!
Here is what I did with the sketch:
And here are some additional close up shots.
Fussy cut tea cup tower, adhered with foam squares for dimension
Handmade flower (rough cut circles and heat gun used to curl the edges). Little missy wanted her nails painted red for the day (it WAS a special occasion, after all!) and then I had to stick little flowers to each nail!
This image shows the dimension of the tea cup tower.
