Tea Cup Mini Kit from Connie Prince for solving my hidden elements game!

For those who don't know, I write the Sunday blog posts for Connie Prince's blog.  This Sunday, we're scrapping The Mad Tea Party!!

Connie sent me the cutest ever mini kit that I could not only use, but give away to our readers!!  Here's the preview:



What I did this week was take a couple of the elements and I "hid" them in/on my photos in the included layout.  Your mission, in order to win, was to tell me where one or both of those elements are! 
My hubby found one right away.. but I had to actually tell him where the second one was "hidden"!

If you would like to receive this Mini Kit for the correct answers.. hop on over to Connie's Blog - and drop me an email to the address specified!!  Click on the mini-kit image or here to go to her blog! Correct answers must be received no later than September 1, 2013 at 7:55 AM Eastern Time.

Have to say.... I just love writing these blog posts for Connie!!
