A Tea Party

Vanessa at Fanciful Twist is having a tea party and everyone is invited. Sam and I worked this week to make a little teacup garland to celebrate. Sam picket out his favorite Mad Hatter pictures. I had a little fun with some Maya Road Tea Cups that I bought at The Crafty Scrapper. I used paper from Bo Bunny and tons of stickles. Now we have a lasting momento of a fabulous time we had in the park.
Sam composed the story to go with the teacups.
Welcome to my tea party. I'm so glad that you weren't late. If you will follow me though the rabbit hole, we will be there in two shakes of a rabbit's tail This is my garden. It is filled with the most beautiful flowers. My friends and I love to come here on sunny summer mornings to start tea parties that last all day long.
Today we are having a little jasmine tea since I am going through a little Chinese phase.
Since we are having such a delightful time, I would like to entertain you with my version of, "Twinkle, Twinkle, little bat."Thank you for coming by. I hope that you will come back soon. But, I have to run. I don't want to be late for my next party!
