Because I knew that this month would be crazy busy with two weeks of Vacation Bible School, a trip to New Brunswick and other summer activities, I decided to get creative right away. Unfortunately, I procrastinated about doing the actual blog post and my laptop decided that it needed a visit to the repair shop and took my camera card along with it. LOL So, here I am using my hubby's laptop, my son's SD card has been formatted for my camera and I'm good to go. I guess I just need the incentive of an 11th hour deadline to get my butt in gear!
This is the photo of the journal page that made me so happy.
In a world of coffee drinkers, I am a lover of tea. Hot, iced, chai, sweet, black, green ... you get the idea. I love waking up in the morning knowing that my husband has a freshly steeped pot of tea waiting for me! I cut a teapot and teacup from my "Once Upon a Princess" cricut cartridge to use as a stencil and went from there.
I used a butterfly stencil cut from the "Paper Lace 2" cartridge for the background and played with polka dots for the dishware.
The quote by Kakuzo Okakura is one that I found on the internet and I loved it! Did you know that someone wrote "The Book Of Tea"? I'm totally intrigued, and will be looking for a copy!
There is a sponsor for this challenge, and I don't want to forget to thank them. It's May Arts ... a ribbon company that has beautiful products.
Thanks for looking at my pictures. I'll try to be a better blogger!
