Something Different....


........ever get in the mood to try a lil something different......well I thought I would!! I searched around for some new challenge sites, (wowee, have you seen how many there are now?!) I happened upon The Shabby Tea-room and fell in love!! Beautiful photograph challenges, beautiful DT entries....just heaven!
So...when my hubby brought us breakfast in this cute lil bag this morning I thought I'd start there....I used some K&Co papers, Prima bling and flower centre, a crocheted flower, a scrap of ribbon, a few pearls and a few Making Memories sparkly letters and hey presto....this is how I ended up!
I need more practice at the vintage look, but I sure can admire in the meantime!! bx

I think you've done a great job with the vintage look, and I love that you've done some recycling here. Love the colors and the bling with the crocheted flower. Beautiful way to do your sentiment, too. So glad you found us at the Tea Room. Hope you come play again.
