Teapot Tuesday

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone! 
 It's been a busy summer full of excitement at our house! 

A Day to celebrate

A week of intense play

 A 16th Birthday Celebration

College Orientation

Plus several shopping trips for the new school year and countless chauffering opportunities for teen get-togethers has made for a dazzling summer!

As our summer nears the end with school daze less than two weeks away, I took a little time out from all the dazzle to refresh my soul with a little art.   I played along with Teapot Tuesdays and this week's Featured Stamper challenges at Splitcoaststampers. 

My teapot and cups were made with Brilliant Red Brusho then die cut and placed on a background I created with an Elegant Writer pen. To show off the pretty Brusho cups and teapot I cut away the solid handles and spout on the white decorative layers.   The "Decorative Tea Time" dies add fun texture to the tea set so I am adding this to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is to Add Texture!
