want to come to my Tea Party?

SPOILER ALERT FOR MY FRIENDS IN THE BOTTLE CAP SWAP!! MY BOTTLE CAPS ARE POSTED BELOW...


Calling all Princesses !!!

I am having a tea party this weekend at Pink Pineapple Scrapbooks. I am working on making some petite fours from a recipe I found. Yes, we all know I do not cook, let alone bake, but this is supposed to be easy. Ha! we will see how it goes! There will be lots of other goodies and surprises as well!

Here is the info:

Join Elena and Chelsea, a real princess, along with other Scrapbook Royalty for a fun craft, storybook reading, and a Royal Tea all in the name of charity. Each participant will receive a goody bag, fairy fly by gift and a chance to win a beautiful raffle basket.



Both Mommy and Daughter will create a unique heart or crown wall hanging using wonderful Flora Craft foam cut outs.
Supplies to bring: Just your scissors and a smile, we will provide lots of beautiful embellishments and ribbon for you to choose from

The cost is $35 for two people. ($20 for an additional person)



This does not have to be mommy daugther, grab a partner and join me for the fun!!!




This is just a sample of what you can make. You will be able to create your fun to reflect your own Royal Style!


And here are my bottle caps for a swap I am doing with some altered art goddesses! I am trying to do a ton of swaps. I find that they make me use my stuff I already have and really challange me creativly! Plus I love seeing other artist's interpretations of the challange!

So Sally gave me some squashed bottle caps and for the purple ones, I filled them crystal lacquer added the beads around the edge and with Floracraft Diamond Dust that I colored with alcohol ink. I Then I added some baubles and a word and voila! Altered bottle caps! the other ones I did a little differently, i actually inked the bottle cap itself, all over so when I filled it with the diamond dust, it took on the color of the alcohol ink. It was fun to play and experiment!

Hi Elena! Thank you for your oh so sweet comments on my blog. I have been a long time fan of yours but a bit of blurker ( a blog lurker, coming in under the radar).

The next time you come to the Rose Bowl flea market, give me a shout! I live less than a mile away. What fun it would be to go with a talent like you! I would be sure to find things I might not see without your talented eye for things.

And, I wanted to say, if you ever have anything going on in my neck of the woods, be sure to let me know. I'm a sure thing for attending or helping in whatever capacity you need. I do windows, prepare food, sweep floors, whatever!

I'll be back and not so quiet. Always enjoy a visit here!
