PCS High Tea Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Crafters Sampler High Tea Blog Hop. Orange Blossom Tearoom is the title for March's Paper Crafters Sampler, and the exclusive template for this teapot is included in the issue. You may have arrived here from Gisela's blog. Don't you love her take on the teapot?

For my teapot, I wanted to go with a Delft Blue (Delft Blauw) flair. Delft Blue is blue and white pottery created in the 16th century in Delft, The Netherlands.

I love how this monochromatic look came out!

Stamps: Simply Soft (hostess); Paper: Pacific Point, Very Vanilla; Ink: Marina Mist, Pacific Point; Accessories: Pearl Jewels, Marina Mist satin ribbon, Pacific Point button, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Bird builder punch, Circle punches, Boho Blossom punch, Blender Pen, Sponges.

Make sure you visit all the design team members' blogs for fabulous ideas! As a "thank you", each design team member will randomly pick a winner to receive the Orange Blossom Tearoom issue for FREE! To enter, leave a comment on our hop posts by Friday. And join in the fun of making your own teapot!

Next up along the hop is our fearless leader, Melanie. She always has fabulous creations! If you get lost, head over to Paper Crafters Sampler's website for the hop participants' links (left-hand margin).
