A Note from Amy
This layout about my niece at her very first tea party, was created using a color palette I pulled from the tea cup embellishment that I used on the page. I knew I wanted to use this embellishment the moment that I saw it and it was such a statement piece that I decided to build my entire page around it. I chose a template that would allow me to introduce a lot of different colors in an interesting way and I was lucky to find most of the patterned papers I used in one kit. I mixed these colors with large does of black in white to help the colors pop and to tie in my black and white photos.

Hi there sweet girl and thanks for the invite to tea time. You were the perfect hostess until you knocked over the tea set with those adorable little feet. But not to worry, that will be our little secret.

September Fun Fact
I'm finally reclaiming my studio space in our basement and am currently in the process of organizing and redecorating! It feels so great to start over fresh in new space...don't you agree?!
