Sorry I'm late Mary

I wanted to try a new layering idea on this mixed media digital page.

I had the pile of  pages as a starting point and I hoped that the end page would look like the  images were coming from the page.
I have to say  I need more practise and think  it would be an easier idea using a hands on method, not an old bone shaker of a computer. 

Its Tuesday  and this is T day over at
 Bleubeard and Elizabeths,, so naturally tea had to be  featured as well.

Mary  poured out  two cups of tea and  set aside a few cup cakes.
Alex hopes he isn't to late,
 he had to change the wheels on his bike and  he had to be careful he didn't crack his mums eggs..
Oh dear my imagination is going  sideways, its got to be this old  laptop I'm using ,  its so slow I have to much thinking time.
I hope you have a good day and thank you for stopping by to see me.
 I will visit with you as soon as I can.


  1. I think this looks great …

    All the best Jan

  2. Oh I like the page the way it is, but I know when you want to do something and it doesn't happen quite as hoed it is a bit of personal let down. I hope Mary lets Alex have some tea and cakes since he is late, but maybe she won't mind and just be happy for company. Happy T day Yvonne and I hope the new year is going well. Hugs-Erika

  3. such charming vintage kiddos, and how I love those vintage books too! Happy T Day!

  4. You had me smiling-loved the story for your page-hugs
    Happy T wishes Kathy

  5. Cute story and wonderful work!
    A happy T-day to you and may your computer be up, soon - though... if that slow one makes you come up with such nice stories....hmmm ;-)...

  6. Wonderful pages, fun story, too. Happy T Day Yvonne, hugs, Valerie

  7. I love it when your imagination runs rampant. It makes for a clever story. Those vintage images you used are clever. It took me TWICE to see the egg wheels. That was clever indeed. I hope Alex made it for tea in time, and all turned out well in the end. I really like this technique, but I also look forward to seeing you get your computer back soon. Thanks for sharing this gem with us for T this Tuesday, dear Yvonne. And thanks again for the gifts you sent.

  8. Such a fun page and I enjoyed your storytelling ๐Ÿ˜. The pretty cascade of pink butterflies caught my eye and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he gets the eggs home in one piece ๐Ÿ˜‰. I hope your computer is all fixed soon. Happy T Day wishes! Hugs, Jo x

  9. She doesn't look like she minds whether or not he's late, does she :) She's patient and ready for when he arrives. Happy T Tuesday!

  10. Brilliant page Yvonne and I love your story!!! Happy T day! Chrisx

  11. Oh, I love it! Your vintage children are adorable and look perfect amid the piles of old books and papers.
    Happy Tea Day,

  12. Fun story and page, Yvonne. Eggs for wheels? What a great image. How nice that Mary waited. She certainly had plenty of reading material to while away the time.

    Happy T-day! Eileen xx

  13. Fun vintage piece. I love the vintage paper. Happy T-Day!

  14. I think it looks great, and I loved the little story.

  15. Fun! My laptop is dead slow so I’m hoping to get a deal on a Microsoft Surface when we go to see the family, son in law deals with them!
