~ Pink Lemonade ~ The Shabby Tea Room challenge

** IMPORTANT NOTE: Yay everybody who asked for flowers! I went shopping today and found plenty of beautiful posies to share with you all (and my arm almost fell off carrying 70 packs of flowers home) ... I got enough to fill all the requests, and a few extras, so go ahead and email me if you would like some! **

Photo inspiration _66
The Shabby Tea Room this week -- some fresh and fun inspiration with this gorgeous photo. Look at that cake: simple, imperfect, and yet beautiful! and those glasses of lemonade make my mouth water. Pink lemonade tastes so much better than yellow lemonade (at least in my mind).

All right, on to my humble contribution for this week:

The fabric blossom came from Prima's Melody-Whisper collection, a new favorite of mine. I'm so glad I caved in and got the Prima blooms that day... pretty things are so worth it. at least, most of the time.

I also got some new K&Co patterned papers from the Watercolor Bouquet collection. I trimmed the florals from the Yellow Blossom paper and tucked them behind the Prima bloom. The sweet sentiment is from a Clear and Simple Stamps set, and the acrylic doily is recycled from a Prima packaging ;)


Oh! these photos were taken last week with the silly old point-and-shoot cam, but over the weekend, my KIND AND AWESOME big brother brought over one-of-his-many DSLRs and lent it to me. YAY!! (I'll have to try it out soon, because it looks like a good camera but I'm not sure) heehee ;)

Ok, I'll be back tomorrow with a fun stamping project... see you then.
