BBTB: Hot Stuff - Coffee/Tea Challenge

Hi all!

What a whirlwind week we had in Canada with my Cricut buddies!  I think we packed 3 trips into 1.  It will take a lot more than a 2 page layout to scrap all of our adventures.  In the meantime I have a layout today of a previous get together with me, Catherine and Ann for the BBTB Challenge - Coffee/Tea:

We met up in Baltimore at a paper crafters get together.  Afterwards we headed back to my house.  Cat had pinpointed every cupcake shop on our route AND set up reservation for tea!  Here is a closer look at each page.

This little cupcake is from a Cricut cartridge - I glammed it up with some glittery Stickles on the icing.

This little tea cup also came from a Cricut cartridge.  I used Liquid Pearls to enhance the steam swirl.

I made the title using Make The Cut (MTC).  It's so easy to add the fonts, a few cuts like the teapot and cupcake and then give it a shadow.  This little cuppie also got some glammed up icing.

The stacked cups are from Little Scraps of Heaven - she has fantastic SVGs.  I also used several stamps on these pages - old stamps I've had forever from Pink Cat Studio.  I colored them using my Polychromos Colored Pencils.

The stamp set came with an adorable border which was perfect along the bottom of my journaling.

I hope you can join our challenge!  Head over to BBTB and see the rest of the amazing projects by the other Design Team members!

And now a few pics from our recent adventure last week:

We adored Ava!

Boat time!

They loved the fishing each morning!

We spent the first 4 days at the lake staying in Cat & Bart's trailer - 6 adults and 2 small kids in a small 2 bedroom/1 bath trailer and there wasn't a single bump along the way.  Speaks volumes about what an amazing friendship we all have - us girls AND the hubbies too!
