I Love My Teapot

My layout for the Online Scrapbook Weekend From The Heart challenge.  Shimelle set the challenge by saying "create a layout with I love… or I heart… as your title. Your page design can be anything you fancy and please be encouraged to have fun with your topic. What certain something really makes you happy but you haven’t really recorded in your albums?"

One of my very first blog posts back in 2009 was about this polka dot tea pot, which I purchased from Whittards, not an expensive pot, not an antique or valuable - but I love it. I love the shape and the colour, it makes a great cup of tea and it even pours well. At the time I said it would make a good subject for a layout, so here it is over two years later!

For the layout I used:
Patterned papers - Basic Grey's Lime Rickey Collection - Boston cooler, howdy doody, tart & tiny, element stickers.
Letter stickers - Sandylion birthday alphabet, Making Memories black puffy alpha, American Crafts foam daydream, Me & My Big Ideas and Doodlebug Designs.
Rub-on's - Doodlebug Designs, Kaieser rustic elements, Urban Lily framed fill ins,Basic Grey.
Other - felt, brads, flat backed gems black pen, price tag, blossoms.

Some elements from ideas I have seen created and used by Gabrielle P

P.S. Sad to say this pot is now destined to be a flower pot as the lid went the same was as many others. My hubby has a knack of breaking them! But I now have a lime green one!
