Tea for Two

When I got my hands on some of the gorgeous Kitchen Spice papers from Bo Bunny, I initially thought I'd use them to scrap one of my many kitchen adventures with my boys. But when I went through my photos, this one of my mum and I enjoying an afternoon tea treat at the Dorchester Hotel stood out, it seemed to fit well with the colours:

I wasn't sure how I was going to use one particular sheet with a large bold design, until I decided that certain elements cut out would make great accents, so I set to with a pair of scissors!

I raised the cut-out elements on foam pads, for a 3-D effect, and placed them overlapping the photo, which helps draw the eye to the picture.

I added my title using vinyl Thickers, some of the lovely velvet scalloped ribbon from American Crafts, some mini sunflowers, and finished off with a touch of sparkle with some Stickles glitter glue and Kaiser gems.

Another cuppa, anyone?

Very Nice layering there! cutting out elements from papers is a great way to use really bold patterned papers. Thanks for sharing your lovely layout and I will hopefully have a relevant "tea" related announcement to make shortly on my own blog!
