Royal Tea Bridal Shower Blog Hop

Good morning and happy Thursday!  Welcome to the Royal Tea Bridal Shower Blog Hop hosted by the amazing and talented Ellen at Card Monkey.  If you are coming from Brynn at Flair And Frills, then you are right on track.  If you are coming across my blog and would like to hop along, please start over with Ellen.

In honor of the royal wedding taking place tomorrow, what better way than to have a blog hop all about tea, tea party, bridal shower, etc..  I'm heading towards the end of the hop and I hope you're all enjoying yourselves.

I know some Italians that have two events for a wedding before the wedding.  One is a bridal shower and one is a tea.  The tea is a little more intimate than a bridal shower and is literally a tea party.  I decided for this hop I would create a teapot along with a tea bag holder.  Enjoy!
Tea pot came from Creations With Ar, it's called Tea Time Card And Box Set
Tea box came from My Time Made Easy, it's called Tea Tab Box
Paper is DCWV Lemon Flower Stack
Yellow Rose of Texas Starburst Spray from Lindy Stamp Gang
Flowers are Prima and Recollections
Trims are from A Treasures Nest

Here are 2 other pictures....

I really wanted to keep it simple because I absolutely love that paper and didn't want to take away from it.

For the blog candy.....
One lucky hopper will be selected via for a $20.00 gift card to your choice of Michaels, Joanns or Hobby Lobby.  To win, simply leave a comment and a way for me to reach you.  I will announce the winner on Monday, May 2nd.

Thank you so much for hopping/stopping by.  A huge thank you to Ellen at Card Monkey for letting me be a hop stop.

Have a great day and your next stop is the fabulous Elaine at Expressions By Elaine.

Nikki! I ♥♥♥ your teapot ... isn't it amazing that we used the same file from Creations by AR, and our "take" can be so different!? LOVE YOURS!!! And the teabox, ooh-la-la! I actually should make one of those for a gift for my Bestie.

...and it's MY PLEASURE to have you participate in "my" Hop (it's actually Prince William's hop, but we won't tell him, ehhh)... ANY TIME!

Thank you for being a special part of today's Hop with me!
