Tea for Two

Our new challenge at ShopPumpkinSpice is “Coffee/Cocoa/Tea”.   I decided to make a 6x6 scrapbook page of my daughter, Liz, and I having high tea when we were on vacation.   


2013-01-22 PSS Tea Time Layout WM


My daughter was so cute!  All morning she was very excited about “going to tea.”  Then, when we were getting ready, she asked me “What do people do at tea?”   I explained to her that you drink tea, have little sandwiches and sweets and talk.   When get were seated in the tea room, I swear her bottom barely touched the cushions before she said “So, Mom, what do you want to talk about?”    We ended up having a really nice time together and she still talks about what kind of tea she is going to try when we go back. 


I included a little pull out with some information on that day.  I’m terrible at journaling on my scrapbook pages.  I decided that I wasn’t going to stress about journaling.  If I have to journal, I would never get any scrapbook pages done.

I know it is a little hard to read, but the stamp in the corner reads “You & Me the perfect blend”, which I thought was perfect for the day.

Don’t forget to link up your “Coffee/Cocoa/Tea” creation HERE for the third ShopPumpkinSpice challenge.    You can also see the challenge details there.


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!   Have a cup of coffee/cocoa/tea and stay warm!
