CSI#55 - Teacup collection

 Hi there everyone, the next weeks case file at CSI has just been released and 
Thanks to Debbi for inviting me to be guest investigator for the month of January. 

Here is my layout that I have created. The colours in this week challenge are fabulous again. I created the background with green Prima Washi tape and Kaisercraft papers.

My Teacup Collection - CSI#55

Here are the details for this week

I have an interesting collection of vintage teacups in my display cupboard. I started collected them over 25 years ago, when I received my first set of cup and saucer as a gift. I always would buy a set when we travelled to interesting places, a perfect reminder of our travels. I do use them when we have guests over for a cup of tea and cake, but there are some that are so delicate and too precious to take out. I love my teacup collection. 
It transports me back to the Victorian age.
