A Tea Tote

Hi All, this is kinda of late in the day for me to post but won't be able to do it tomorrow, so decided to do it this afternoon.  Ever since the first release of BasicGrey, it has been my favorite.  But, there is something out there that has stolen my heart and it wouldn't take much to push it up to my all time favorite.  "Bits of Ivory"
and they are digi, I found them on  This is for my hair dresser, she is wonderful and tomorrow she is cutting my hair into a bob, she has been working on getting it to the right length for a couple of months and tomorrow is the day, lol.  So I wanted to have her Valentine done to take with me.  I did not have a lot of time to spend and started out on a different path this AM, got frustrated and decided to look at what BBT2 was up to this week.  I found this site on one of the design team members blog.  The background paper is from "Alonzo'skitchen" and the tea cup is from "Get Well Soon", I printed the tea cup out three times, then ran string from the back through a small cut slot and then adhered it right to the top of the tea title, which hangs freely, they were both perfect. 
My hair dresser is an avid tea drinker and I usually bring her my newest favorite, which right now is Zhen's Gypsy Tea "Coconut Chi" oh yuuuuuum. But I wanted it presented in a special way, so I made this little Tea Tote (easy to throw in purse or set on desk when working)  The sleeves for the tea are the artist trading card sleeves, PERFECT.  Misc. ribbon, the name plate "Spellbinders", photo corners EKSuccess and it is all ready for tomorrow.  Hugs
