Tea for Two - Sketch and Product Challenge

Hi Everyone! You may or may not know, but last month was my last month as a DT member for Mandy at Limelight Papercrafts. I was sad to go, but one of the perks is that I still get to play with all those fabulous ladies.

Here is my take on the sketch - don't mind the fact that I altered it a tad and then forgot the oval shape for my sentiment. Sorry :(

Well, if you love that tea cup you can find it at Mandy's store and I'm not positive if that paper is available, but if not, there are other papers from TaDa that are available.

Which leads me into my story. When I first found Limelight, one of the paper lines that I adored was one called TaDa. I hadn't heard of it, but it was really fun and when the holidays came around I fell in love with one of their holiday lines. One of my most favorite projects of last year was that paper Christmas ornament and matching box that I made with the TaDa line and for a DT group project. You can find that -->HERE<-- along with the tutorial. Anyway, Mandy was kind enough to let me know that TaDa was hosting a contest and since I had that awesome project already done, I submitted and guess what??? Yup, I won and in turn received TaDa's entire line of paper and 6 stamps of my choice.

Fast forward and skip back to a couple of weeks ago when I was at CHA and guess who was there walking the show? Yup, I'm sure you guessed correctly again. The two fabulous ladies who created TaDa - Annette and Mary. It was incredibly cool to meet with these very innovative designers of scrapbook paper. Their line is very fresh, fun, unique, classic, all rolled into their distinct lines. TaDa will be coming out with a fall line up and I'm positive that it will be fabulous. I can't wait to see it. Annette and Mary, if you happen upon this post, you guys are awesome!

So that's it for my story. The designer paper and the teacup stamp is from TaDa, but the sentiment "tea for two" is actually from a mini Hero Arts stamp set as are the bits of bling.

Thanks for hanging in there with me and I know its early, but I have been working on sneak peeks for the next Clear Dollar release and I have to say I {heart} them all. Can't wait to show you. I also have to say that I'll be posting a *sweet* Valentines project/tutorial next Tuesday on the Clear Dollar Stamp's blog - Clearly iStamp - too.

Have a great day!
