A Tea Party, Fun Gifts, and Disneyland

I have been meaning to write a post all week but was either too busy or too tired to.  In the past two weeks my family and I have gone to Disneyland 30+ hours with my cousin and her family that are visiting so when I was home this week I did not want to do anything but relax.  :)  My body and especially my feet are still recovering from all the walking and fun.  I will share a few pictures of my fun times there after I share some crafty stuff with you.  Today I will be sharing with you what I made and gave to the friends that I had a tea party with last month at A Cup of Tea in Oahu.  I made purses using a die cut I believe from Tonic and I embossed the front and back panels of the purse to make it look like a designer purse. I made the purses in colors that coordinate with the hat pin cushion that I purchased.

I took pictures with each friend with what they made. Under each picture is a close up of what the friend made.

Here is Dori and I.

Here is Fran and I.

Here is DeAnna and I.

Here is Brenda and I.  I am sorry I am having a hard time downloading a the close up picture of what Brenda made for me.

Robyn has joined us at tea for the past few years, but since she moved to another state she was not able to this year.  Although she was not able to join us she surprised us with a gift. 

Thanks again Robyn for your awesome gift.  We all missed you but we know that you were with us in spirit. Before we enjoyed our delicious teas, scones, sandwiches, and desserts,
we made a toast. 

It is always lots of fun getting together for tea each year with friends and talking story.  As promised before I end my post here are two pictures from Disneyland.  Here is a picture of Benson and I with my cousin and her hubby.

Here is a picture of the beautiful scenery we see on one of my favorite rides "Radiator Springs."

Thanks for stopping by! Have a fun and relaxing weekend!

    1. Thanks for continuing to take time to visit my blog. It is always more fun to swap with people when you are able to put a face to them. I am glad that you enjoyed the photos. I hope that you had a wonderful weekend. Have a great week!

  2. So glad you had an awesome time on Oahu with your friends. You all exchanged some really nice and crafty creations in your swap. As always, the food looks yummy.
