Scrapbooking and Food… 2 of my favorite things.
During my March visit to Philadelphia, I had the most incredible breakfast. I went to Philly to see my friend Dawn, who was my neighbor a few years back in Boston. She took me around the city to see some of the typical sights and to have some fantastic food. You can’t go to Philly without having some cheese steaks! But more importantly we went to Darling’s Diner in the complex she lives in on my last day and I had the most amazing French Toast breakfast called “Hipster’s Paradise”. Clearly I would need to document this breakfast bliss.
I’m hooked on my Studio Calico kits. My Oct and Nov kits are spread out all over the living room floor. (Really surprised Price has not flipped out on my yet from it. Yet…) I was really enjoying playing around with the different possibilities for the background paper. I knew it would be a simple layout with 1 picture so I wanted something fun and bright. I matted the photo on a neutral piece of paper so it would stand apart from the bright background. I painted a chipboard accent with Tim Holtz’s crackle paint and then put the page title on that using white Thickers. The crackle looks much better in person than in my photos/scan, trust me.
In addition to using Studio Calico kit supplies, I decided I would participate in this week’s challenge posted on the SC blog. The challenge was to use Use any packaging material on your layout. I used the packaging from Sassafras’ Paper Whimsies for my journaling spot.
