Creations by AR - Something Old, Something New

Good morning!  

It's my day to post for the Creations by AR Something Old, Something New feature!  
This is a fun opportunity for the Design Team to take a previously released template, 
and revisit it in a new and different way.

I chose to use the Tea Cottage template.  
 
This sweet, template has become 'eerily' different today!  Hope you like it.  The top lifts right off for easy refilling with tea bags of your choice.  You can purchase this Tea Cottage template HERE.  Remember, all AR templates come in SVG, DXF, and PDF files.  I don't own a cutting machine, so all of my projects are completed by hand.

In this view, you can see how the teabags slide out the bottom. Pretty cool, don't you think?  And the fun fence is part of the set!  Just think how many things you could use it for!

Here is the cottage with the roof off.  SO easy to put in new teabags!


Hope that your week is going well.  We have had no internet since Friday night, due to electricity taking out the nearest tower - other than that, life is good!

Did anyone else watch that man cross over the Grand Canyon on the cable?  EEEEEKS!  Talk about scary. And maybe a bit crazy?  lol....To each his/her own!
Edit:  Oops, sorry!  This was pre-scheduled WEEKS ago!

Hopefully, I'll be up and running soon, and get by to see you!
Edit:  Another oops - have been back on line for a week or two!

Have a good week,
Patti J.

Patti, I love this. I am so going to have to purchase the template and like you, I will be doing it all by hand.

I tried Zumba once..lol You're right about parts of your body hurting that you didn't know existed. I felt that way for days.

Have a great week my friend.
