Tea Time!  Check out this adorable layout by Nana Susan.  She used the Once Upon a Princess cartridge, papers from My Mind's Eye, ribbon from Stampin' Up, and hand-crocheted flowers.  And yes, that's my little angel sipping tea with her friends.


I have a potentially fun idea for this week's blog candy, but you've gotta let me know what you think of the idea.  Ready?  How about if I make a custom layout with a theme of your choice, and the winner gets the completed layout?  Do you like the idea?  What theme would you choose?  Examples would be: princess, baby, little girl, boy, wedding, birthday, outdoorsy, sports, animals, etc, etc. - the sky's the limit!  I think this could be a blast and can't wait to read your ideas!

I love this layout! I must have this cart! This is the perfect lo for my niece's tea party a couple of years ago! I think you should give a lo just like this, including the crochet flowers. Super cute!

Melissa said...

So very pretty! I love your blog candy idea and I would LOVE to have a Disney themed LO created by you for me!!!!

Wow! Awesome layout. There are so many themes that I would love for you to create for my scrapbooks. How to choose just one? I think I would like a baby girl layout since I just had a baby girl and now have no time to create!! Thanks so much. Take care and thanks for all of the creativity!!

your LO is so cute!

Hmm.. How about Mardi Gras!?

or For a girl, but not using pink. I have a 8yo girl who is so not girly - never played with a barbie in her life or been to a tea party! She loves dinosaurs and dragons! I would love to see ideas that are for a girl but not too boyish. Feel up to the challenge?

What a gorgeous layout. Would be perfect for my DD, she loves to play dress up and have tea parties with anyone that will play. I would love to win a custom layout. Either Princess or little boy would be great since I have one of each. Thanks for the chance.

Nana Susan you did a great job. I love the crocheted flowers. I am not talented enought to do that. Super Cute

The layouts you guys come up with are always SO amazing! Your blog is my number one go-to spot for inspiration. I have a little boy, and you've still made me want the Princess cart. ;)
I'd like to see a layout for a day in the park. That's our family's favorite place to take pictures, and I love scrapping the everyday stuff!

Adorable layout! I would love to see a layout for a petting zoo.

Sarah said...

This is such a cute layout! I am scrapping my daughter's first birthday party and have used this cartridge quite a bit on it!

I would LOVE to see you create a layout for a baby girl just starting to walk!

belinda said...

Makes me want to have a tea party...

jan farnworth said...

what a neat idea i would love a boy birthday party layout. My sons 7th birthday is next month. Also a camping one would be great to. I love all your layouts anyway.

Anniebee said...

I'm always so impressed with your layouts and now I'm a fan of Nana Susan's too. I love the papers... the soft colors are just perfect for a little girl's tea party. Love your blog candy idea. I think I would have to choose a wedding layout. My nephew is getting married this spring and I would love to make shadowboxes with your gorgeous layouts to hang on their wall. That would make an awesome gift for him and his beloved!

Wow! Your layout is beautiful!! I love your blog candy idea :) I think that I would love a pet (dog) theme lo!!

LesleyfromWI said...

This is a supe cute LO. I would love a Disney themed LO like Melissa. I have yet to scrap our photos when we were at Disney and am totally behind!

cjtatman said...

What an adorable layout, great job Nana Susan! And what a great idea for the blog candy. I would love to see one done with a sewing, gardening or baking theme. Thanks for the chance.

This is a beautiful layout! I haven't used this cart yet, but now I have some great ideas.

I'd love to have a layout with a racing theme.

debbie susee said...

I'd love to see teen boy. A lot of the cuts are very cutesy and it's a challenge to get an older, more masculine look.
I think your blog candy idea is great! Go for it.

sleigh said...

This layout is priceless; so perfect for a girls "tea party"! The papers, colors and i luv the flower punch-out with a photo in behind.
Blog candy idea is great...i would luv to have either a Vegas or Hawaii (Maui) themed layout designed by the one and only you! So many pics from these trips; would be nice if they were in my album :D

littlen said...

How about a LO for a dance recital?

Dee said...

I think it would be a BLAST and a challenge (for you). You can really demonstrate your creativity this way. Do we also get to pick the cartridge? Cuz, I would not like getting a kit for a cartridge I did not have : )

Terry said...

This is an adorable layout...love the colors and papers!!

What a fun idea for blog candy...would love a wedding theme to use for pics from my three children's weddings...Paris in Vegas; beach at sunset and a victorian mansion..how's that for a challenge? :o)

Kristie Maynard said...

Adorable layout!
I love your idea of a custom layout! I think I would want a "girls night out" layout. I'm pretty tame, night out is scrapping or book club, not out partying or drinking or anything. I think that would be a fun layout to whip up!
Thanks!

Here's an idea: Pick a winner and then let them choose a theme. These ideas are so varied, and yet I can see how some of these would be very desirable for some people but others would have no uses for them. And something very specific would probably mean more to the winner than something generic, although everything you do is gorgeous. Just a thought.

Mary Jean said...

what a cute layout!! OK...this would be a easy choice for me! If I were lucky enough to win I would ask for a layout that I could use for my dogs! I have 6 golden retrievers and would love to see what you would come up with!

Beebeebabs said...

Very nice layout tfs!!!

RAP said...

I love the idea of you making a layout in the theme of the winners choice. It would just be so hard to choose what theme!

Meshell said...

This layout is precious. If I was to win the blog candy, I would love a layout with pics of my mother. She passed away almost 16 yrs. ago when my kids were little (daughter 6, son 4) and I'm having a really hard time doing anything with her pics. I want something special and I would never be able to do them justice like you would. Thanks for the chance.

Angela said...

What a fun tea party and beautiful layout. I think I would like a layout for my family dog. I take alot of pics of her. She is old, mean, grouchy and stinky (and has a long list of nicknames)--- just part of the family.

Carol L said...

What a beautiful layout! Nana Susan did a wonderful job and that tea party looks like so much fun! I would love a layout for a boy/toddler. I have a little boy and it's so hard to come out with something for Him (I always go for the pink) lol. I hope you have a wonderful blessed day :0).

Hugs, Carol L.

Beautiful girly layout! I love the papers too. I think having a custom lo designed is a great prize and would love to have it!

cardchick's world said...

Beautiful LO...and the sweet little ones make it gorgeous!!!

Faye said...

The "teapot" layout is absolutely fantastic. Your idea of a special lay-out is a great idea. I would personally love a spread that would cover the love I have for my husband of nearly 43 years. He is the love of my life & whatever design I would come up with certainly would not match the creativity you have.

I love your layouts and am always inspired by your use of different patterns together. I would love a layout with trains but anything for little boys would be great!

Maquel said...

What a great layout!!! So pretty and girly! Perfect for my toddler princess!!!
And GREAT idea for blog candy!!! What a lucky duck the winner will be!! (I hope it's me!) I would choose a layout with a "zoo" theme (a recent trip) or a summer/swimming layout! ooooh, so exciting!!

Goody Bag Diva said...

What about a safari theme? That one really has me stumped!

JennyKozar said...

Adorable! I love the idea of your blog candy being a layout. I would love one of each of your suggestions - LOL. Seriously - I have so many pictures I need to get onto pages that any of these I would probably have pictures for.
Thanks!

I love the lo! If I got to choose a lo for you to create, I'd love to see a wedding one or a heritage lo. Ya know, pretty much anything you created would be awesome!

Lovely layout and those hand crochet flowers are beautiful...

cowbelleru said...

Emily and friends look like they had a lot of fun. How about a day at the beach kite flying.

Love this LO. I would like to see you do something with the Campin' Critters layout. What a great boy scout cart.

Miss Dhilly said...

Your layout is beautiful as always! I would love to have you create a Disney layout for me so I could use it for our recent pictures from our trip! Such a great idea!

What a great LO! I love the paper too.

Monique. I love th blog candy idea. I would love to have themed layout that has to do with girls! (I have 6 grandaughters!)

Patricia said...

Wow! What a fabulous offer. Let's see I could use a layout for the aquarium, the park, a best friends where the bf are dogs, Disney, Thomas the Train...my list never ends. If you can't tell, all of the above for a very, very active boy.

You have loads of both talent and imagination and have out together a simple fab design team. Congrats!

My name is Suzanne said...

I would love for you to personally create a Community Christian Preschool layout for when Steven graduates this coming May... LOL... Fine, Nana Susan can help you with the personalization then ;p

Donna said...

Nana Susan - this is adorable! My granddaughter just attended her first tea party at a wonderful tea parlor with her American Doll. The girls all had their dolls and sipped tea and ate crumpets, just like English Young Ladies would! This would be the ideal layout for that event!
I'd better get to work! Love the idea for a custom layout for blog candy, and I'd select the "Tea Party" one by Nana Susan!
Blessings, Donna

Vickie said...

Nana Susan you have done it again!!!! This is an absolutely adorable LO. TFS. I think the blog candy idea for this week is great. If I win I'd like a disney themed LO

Beary Crafty said...

You certainly inspire me to do a better job at crafting! Yes, I love the idea...I am a big HS football mom so I would love to see a football layout :)

THe Tea Party Layout is beautiful. YOu and your team have wonderful ideas. My idea for a layout would be a camping layout. I have so many camping pic and not enough ideas. I would love for you to create one.

Congrats, Nana Susan. This is such a cute layout for a girls' tea party. I have no girls, so this is so cute to look at it - lots of girly and frilly things and colors.

I love the blog candy idea and would love a l/o with Mickey, Goofy, Donald, Pluto, etc. maybe playing some musical instruments. Nothing too girly, though, since I have a son so no princesses. My son is going with the Senior Showband in his school (Pre-K to 8th grade)to Disney in May to compete at Festival Disney and he is only in 5th grade!!!! He's only halfway through his second year of clarinet and loves it. He is very good at it too. Not sure if you have the Quarter Note cartridge (I don't yet), but that has some great musical images along with the Disney Mickey & Friends cartridge. Hope I win cause I love your work!!!!!

What a beautiful layout; my Granddaughter just hosted a Tea Party for the family a few weeks ago, with the new tea set she got as a house warming present. I love your idea for blog candy this week; and I agree with the other suggestions of picking a winner first and letting them choose a layout. But, if I were to make a suggestion in advance, it would be a beach layout - that's what I'm working on right now and I could always use some inspiration from you! :)

Great layout! I hope I win a layout created by you!

C Stephens said...

I think your idea is fabulous Monique and the tea party layout is wonderful. I have a teenage boy so I don't get to do these kind of cute layouts. I love it! And if I were lucky enough to be chosen I would love either a general teenage boy layout or a teenage boy baseball layout. Have a fantastic day! camvdstephens at yahoo.com

Gorgeous layout! Love the crocheted flowers.

I love this layout. Reminds me of the tea party I had for my little girl about 17 years ago!! We went to Italy and Greece this past year for a 25th anniversary and my album would be perfect with a layout done by you!

Cindy said...

Love your layouts and would be blown away if I won anything you made. Great idea for blog candy. My grand-daughter is only 9 weeks old, but can't wait for tea parties. While I wait for tea party days, maybe something for a little girls 1st year. Thanks for always sharing ideas with us. Cindy

ScrappyChick said...

Your idea for blog candy is just awesome. Could you do a combo layout...like boy and girl. Just wondering...or maybe vacation (beach theme). Thank you for offering such a wonderful prize!

JANLYNN said...

Makes me wish I had a little girl to scrap for. I have two wild and wooley through and through boy grandchildren,4 and 6. to win a layout designed by you would be a dream come true.

Amber said...

What a beautiful layout. Aren't little girls just too precious.

kim.mom said...

I'm frantically working on an Eagle Scout scrapbook so I'd love to see some Scouting layouts!!!

kristyscraps said...

I love this layout! Since I have three little boys, it makes me long for that future granddaughter! I've always had a fantasy of having a big lavish tea party with all of my friends where we all put on our wedding dresses or other fancy dresses--it would only be us ladies in attendance so we wouldn't need to worry about buttoning them up in the back...this layout would be cute for my fantasy tea party!

Barb said...

Love the tea party layout, especially the crocheted flowers!!!!!

I would love to see a layout for dance recitals. My 5 year old granddaugher will be in her 2nd recital this year and my 2 daughters were in recitals for 10 years.

Michele's Scrapy Creations said...

Love your layout! Make me want to go out and get the complete tea party set for my little girl. lol

Love your blog candy idea--way too many ideas for me to pick. lol
