New Design Team!

Hello Ladies! Welcome to my new adventure! I have just become a member of Just a Few Friends (JAFF).

Since most of you know Elsa with Just a Few Designs http://www.justafewdesigns.blogspot.com and KimiBee.I would like to take this time to announce that they along with Elsa's daughter Krystal have created a new design team! Most of their followers, including myself, have been wishing and waiting for this to happen for quite some time! I just never expected to be asked to join so I am overwhelmed and honored! Along with these ladies, myself and Linda have become JUST A FEW FRIENDS (JAFF)!!!

What we intend to do is create projects on a regular basis...sometimes monthly, sometimes more! You are invited to come along and join us for some fun projects, great company and some prizes along the way! For prize entries you must follow each blog and comment on each lady's project to be entered!

So come on in and stay for a visit with us.

Starting with Elsa at http://justafewdesigns.blogspot.com/

Krystal http://www.krystalsnight.blogspot.com/

Kimi http://uniquescrappiness.blogspot.com/

Enjoy! If you have come from Kimi's blog to mine then please go forward to Linda's at http://simpleandsassycreations.blogspot.com

For my first project we were asked to create something relating to teacups, saucers or teapots...Since I collect them I was more than a little excited! For my project I have created this Teddy Bear Tea Party...in a Box! I created the box by recycling a First Aid Bandage box and covering with Butterfly Gardens paper line from Pink Paislee. The miniature tea set was a gift from my daughter when she was about 11 years old...she is now 25! The teddy bears were a set I used for a Christmas scene display every year for Christmas, except for this one!




A WORD OF ADVICE!!!! If you are recycling a box...trust me... it is easier to take the box apart and cover it, then put it back together! MUCH EASIER!


This is what it looks like set up but the following pictures show how they fit into the box.
