Just Neutrals at "The Shabby Tea Room"

Here we are in November and we have had our first SNOW...ugh!!
At least I got some enjoyment working on my project for
This week, using the inspiration photo below, we were asked to
make a project using only Neutral colors, cream, white, black, brown, and/or gold.

Our sponsors this week are Paper Temptress and Paper Sweeties.

I used some gorgeous papers from Paper Temptress.

From Paper Sweeties I used the sentiment from the adorable set "Give Thanks"

Now I have to say this is not at all what I had in mind to do, 
but sometimes life has a way of throwing you off balance.
So all I am saying "due to a technical difficulty"...
I had to completely "rethink" my project as we were leaving on Friday
and would not be back until after this posted.
However, all that being said, I LOVE how this turned out...
so maybe this was "meant to be"!!

The background paper is a new pad I received a few weeks ago
called Faith from Authentique ,
I love this paper so much I am ordering a second one this week!!
The die used was one when a group of us got together and one of the girls
brought in boxes of things she had purchased in duplicate.
I bought a ton of her stuff and this was one of the items....
a Spellbinders die called Lattice Motifs.
I could hardly wait to use it, and when cut on that gorgeous Quartz Metallic paper is stunning!!
I used an Impression Obsession small leaf die and another die from Marianne.

I encourage you to head on over to "The Shabby Tea Room" and see what the other
"Shabby Girls" have to offer you.
I want to welcome Tracey Kelly back on to the team.

I just have to give this one a big WOW and a deep sigh, Diane. I love anything lattice and this die is particularly beautiful. Love how you cut the leaves from gold to go with those beautiful neutral-colored flowers. I'm seeing a lot of Authentique papers lately and they all look pretty fabulous. I never see it at our local paper craft store where I like to shop, so I'll probably have to go online for it. I'm sure I'll go overboard. Paper is my weakness.
