tea for two...

I haven't had the opportunity to play over at CPS for a couple weeks. I was actually pleased to see the clean & simple sketch that they have up for CPS141.

It seemed to work perfectly for my project..

I have a TON of nugget tins...a TON...

I'm trying to come up with some clever ways to alter them...

Oh man, I do have to thank Savitri again for her fabbie bow tut...Isn't the Winter Wishes image just beautiful...it was $1...can you believe it? It is the Studio G line..I found mine at Paper Zone. The white swiss dot paper is Bazzill, the kraft is Speckletone.

Aha....now do you understand my title for today? I filled the tin with Trader Joe's Pomegranate White Tea Bags...I put a divider card in there to keep the tea bags nice & tidy:) It is actually a lovely surprise to open up the tin, the tea is wonderfully fragrant...mmm....tea for two.


Thanks for stoppin' by...
