A Tea Party

I was recently invited to join a Moley swap.  This would be my first swap of this kind. The moley we are using in this swap is an according style Moleskin journal and are 3.5 x 5.5.  My group has eight participating artists including myself.  Each one of us picked their own personal theme and each of the eight artist will add a layout featuring that theme.  The interpretation of that theme is left up to the artist with some guidance from the owner of the Moley.  My theme is Tea Party.  I picked this theme because I love my tea.  But more importantly, during the recent Hurricane Irene, we lost all power and because of that all our appliances including the stove.  My husband knowing how much I love tea stood outside on the porch and made me my cup of tea on the grill.  Just loved that! My guidelines were hopefully simple in that I didn't care who was having the tea party including aliens or animals, just that it not be an inanimate object like dolls and bears.  I've seen so many of those, that I just didn't want them included in my journal.  Before my journal went on its journey, I decorated the cover, the inside cover and the first three pages of the according pages.  Here's to the start of my moley's journey!

Great theme for a swap! I'm a big tea lover too. It must be black tea though, like Assam. Mmmmm...
