Bertie (Charlene) is hosting the Tea-Party this week. Check it out to read Dusty's sad story with a happy ending. I'll be back later with a card - but teddy stamps being in short supply here started me thinking about photos - and then I remembered this little 8x8 LO I made for a challenge about two years ago. The little book tells how my teddy came all the way from Canada, before I can remember. When my great-aunts sent my brother a teddy, my Tessie was already quite threadworn, so I gave her to my brother and took the new one. Disclaimer - I don't remember this happening at all, but I've been told it did. Of course each teddy was restored to its rightful owner, and on the back page of the little booklet you can see a recent photo of Tessie wearing my mother's christening gown.
Can't remember what the papers are - Cherry Arte I think for the background. The letters were handcut and I added Glossy Accents. There are little shrink plastic butterflies as well as some flowers and gems.
Sorry to share an old project when it's meant to be a new one, but this was so perfect for the challenge.
I guess I was about 4, maybe 5 in the pictures.

Well aren't you just the cutest, Sabrina! Love this scrapbook page! My fave is the one of you holding Teddy up over your head all dancing and swirling around...reminds me of my girls who ALWAYS want me to take a picture of them with their toys...so sweet!

Awwwwww! If this just isn't the sweetest memory page, I don't know what is! How adorable, Sabrina, and Tessie looks so well loved. I bet Tessie would be a really good friend to Dusty, too, huh?
You better bring her along with some of your good cookin' cuz Dusty and Bertie are hungry, as I'm sure some of the other tea partiers will be once they git here. I hope your passport is up to date and can't wait to see you there!
