Summer Picnic at The Shabby Tea Room

Hi there, it's time for a new challenge at
This week our theme is "Summer Picnic"
using the inspiration photo below.

Our sponsor is Dies R Us.

I made this card almost totally from my scrap bin.
It seems I have an abundance of "pink" scraps.

cutting it first on sticky back paper that I had adhered to my card stock.
Then, I did the same for each teapot, and placing each individual piece in.
kind of like a puzzle.
It was rather picky doing it this way as each piece is so small..
but the outcome is worth it I think!

I think it is the cutest little thing!

The sentiment is an Anna Griffin.
The little lady bug is Die-Versions Wee Petites Buggy.

The ribbon is labeled Christmas...hmmmm...
it works well here I think.

you just have to have this is downright GORGEOUS!!

Now why don't you pop on over to The Shabby Tea Room
and see what the other "shabby" girls
have to inspire you!
We have some new members on our DT and they are fabulous,
as well as us "oldies"....wait did I just call us!!!

So absolutely adorable, Diane! I just LOVE the teapot stack the way you did it. Such cute pink papers, and the perfect embossed white background for it all. Love the pink polka dot ladybug, too!
