You are invited to.....a Strawberry Tea

A couple of weeks ago my friend G held a Strawberry Tea in her garden.......to raise funds for breast cancer research.
It was a hot,sunny afternoon......a delightful amount of  strawberry edibles......scones with strawberries,strawberry tarts,strawberry cheesecake,strawberry gateaux,strawberry cupcakes......strawberries everywhere.......all far too tempting.
A group of about 16 ladies sat in the garden........soaking up the sun........drinking tea......eating strawberry delights.......relaxing......and chatting together......the perfect Saturday afternoon.
And £105 was raised for the charity.
And as I'm a bit 'scrapped out' on the holiday album front at the moment......I remembered this little giveaway I got from the lovely Deb some time ago.......just perfect for scrapping a Strawberry Tea.
You can't actually see in the photo........but as well as the strawberry card..........it contains co-ordinating red,pink and green card......as well as the buttons and gorgeous punched strawberries.
And in my stash I found a strawberry button and a teapot button........perfect.
I printed the photos small as I only wanted to make one page........and this will be part of my 2012 album......which is being made as a result of Shimelle's 'Cover to Cover' course.

Hi Jacky ~ Oh, this made me so happy this morning. I love what you did with the strawberry supplies! You know, my mom is CRAZY about strawberries and her whole kitchen is decorated with strawberry stuff. Great layout and nice work helping to raise money for such a worthy cause. :o)

I love how you got so many photos on your layout. Sometimes I have so many photos that I want to use. I have to scraplift how you did it. I like that you included the strawberry and teapot buttons on the layout.
