tea party

This is a custom design for a friend's tea/baby shower that will take place at the end of the month. The color of the photograph was a little difficult to adjust. The paper is a pretty salmon color (Martha Stewart) that is a little softer than the photo shows. The tea bag label is actually hanging from embroidery thread and features a little girl's dress. One done - 30-something more to go!

Speaking of Martha Stewart...I must have stood in front of her new line of products for an hour trying to figure out what I'd use for this project. I'm still considering another sheet of salmon branches that is very pretty and may help give this design a softer look... Actually I've made up my mind. I'm going to go get it now.

Can you believe this is the first time I buy patterned paper for a project? I'm the type that needs to reinvent the wheel and I can't seem to use someone else's designs. I know...weird.

Oh! Here it comes - my first complaint for the summer. It's TOO hot and it's only June!! :(
