Mad Tea Party Pages

It's an ABC challenge on Heart 2 Heart Blog this week. Make "Anything But a Card"!!? No problem, I love creating all sorts of projects that are not cards. However, being that it's National Scrapbooking Month I've made a promise to myself to get some scrapbooking done!

You may remember these pages I posted awhile back from my daughter's Mad Tea Party. These pages showcased the results of all our guests with their mad hatter hats. I still needed to scrap the photo's from the party.

So here is the companion page that will proceed the other one once it goes in my album. It shows some pics of the decorations, food, tea, guests, and fun! I used some great new products, stamps and some of my favorite techniques.

Here is a close up of the left page. Instead of creating new embellishments I used the tags I made for the party.

Here is what the tags looked like at the party~

Why double your work? I knew I saved these for a reason!!

I love the eclectic irresistible chipboard and dot alphabet!

and the right side~

I made these simple lanterns to decorate the party and wanted to capture them for the page also. I was unable to incorporate them on the page like the tags, but our new little lantern stamp worked perfectly.

Amy, This is sooo cool. I just love when our stamps match an event perfectly to make the perfect scrapbook pages. Or... we can make our events match our stamps. I do that more often than not. Great job.! Thanks for sharing with us at H2H

Hi Amy, I just found your blog from the ctmh BB's and am so glad I did...I love your work! I just added you to my Reader :) I love this lantern idea. I bought the set because I love it but haven't done a lot with it yet. I'm going to try this!
