Scones & Tea

Hello my "Shabby" friends....
Today at the "Tearoom" Rebecca is our hostess and she has chosen the
photo below for inspiration and asked us to do a project with the
"Pleasures of Reading"

I am not much of a TV watcher, but I do LOVE to read.
I recently finished a series of 16 books by Robyn Carr...
Yes, I love to read fiction, and if they are a good writer you can certainly
learn a lot....
But, I have to admit this challenge had me stumped as what to create!
I thought of "back to school", but I have been doing those projects
and really wasn't ready to create

Then it hit me!! 
A recipe book (sort of)...I also LOVE recipe books and have lots of them....
I have a nice Marianne Die that just so happens to be a "book".....
Being our sponsor this week is the lovely "Paper Sweeties"....
I went with an open book of Tea and Scones recipe book!!
Perfect for the addition of the "Sweet Cuts-Tea For Two Bundle"
I used all Melissa Frances papers and love how soft and pretty my card is.
I printed a Scone Recipe  in word, then  lined up my die to cut it out.
The edge of my book, I rubbed Viva Inca Gold on.

I also made 2 of the bigger Roses, which you can't see well in the picture
and speaking of my pictures, it was a gloomy, dark picture taking day......

Visit "The Shabby Tea Room" and see all the other beautiful projects the
"Shabby Girls" have for you...join in the challenge with us!!

I have 2 other DT posts today...sometimes it just works that way!
Take a peek....
I am guest designing at "Craft and Smash"
and also have an awesome Halloween project for "Crafty Secrets"

Entering the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks .... Something New (tea pot die) Something Old (MF papers)
I have had these Melissa papers for a long time and they are almost all gone now...sigh!!
Crafty Girls .... Anything Goes

LOVE the book die! Sweet, sweet card! You rose to the challenge beautifully. If I had a nickel for every time you make me want a die, I'd be a rich woman. And I'd need those nickels to help me pay for the dies!
