This week, instead of tea, I have a summer drink idea to share. I actually made these red, white, and blue layered drinks for my family and friends on Memorial weekend back in May, but I thought I'd share the recipe now, since Flag Day is coming up soon. Of course, many of my readers are not American, but you don't need to be American to enjoy this colorful treat. Make it with the colors of your country's flag, or just with any colors that you like. The recipe comes from the first two minutes of this video.
|Supplies: background paper from Stamping Station; chalkboard paper from Simple Stories; ribbon from Berwick Offray; title stickers from Echo Park; all other stickers from Bella Blvd; pen from Foray; chipboard from Scrapmatts; rhinestones from Dee's Place; gifted washi tape.|
I also have a red, white, and blue scrapbook page to share today. While I had my vacation photos (from last summer!) out on the table yesterday, I decided to make one more page--just a quickie this time.
The background paper came with the words "Lake Superior" already printed on it, and I used stickers to add the word "Memories."
Ever since I bought a multipack of rhinestones at the Twin Cities Bead Bazaar back in March, I've been adding the "bling" to almost every project that I make. I am not much of a "bling-y" person (is that even a word?) as far as my personal style goes, and yet...I appear to be turning into a bling-y scrapbooker. Who knew? :)
Hope you enjoyed this "bling-y" visit to Lake Superior. For more beverage-related posts, I invite you to stop by Elizabeth and Bleubeard's blog to read all the T-Day posts in their linkup.
