Time for Tea?

Hi all and I hope you are having a great weekend, I was very lucky to have a whole day yesterday scrapping with some of my wonderful crafty friends and I was pleased with how much I managed to achieve.
Amongst the pages I got finished was one for the current challenge over at Scrap Our Stash which is to create a layout about a guy in your life. Plus..
Stash: use 5+ brads on your layout.
I had to scrap this photo of my nephew dressed up as a teapot at a recent party, he should not have been in the costume as it was in the foyer of the hotel we were in. (I think they use it to promote their afternoon tea events!) Unfortunately after he paraded around in it all the other little children in the family wanted to have a go and I had to try and convince them that it wasn't a good idea as the hotel would not appreciate it getting damaged.

My brads (six of them) were placed in the centres of some of the patterns on the cut out shapes placed around the photo. Not only are the brads quite a few years old but the pattern paper is too so I was quite pleased with my old stash use with this page.

About Our Guys challenge at Scrap Our Stash is open until 29th June so plenty of time to have a go yourself and reduce that growing stash!

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope your weekend continues to be crafty! xx
