Thinking About... A Good Book and Starbuck's

Like I said yesterday, getting a little stir crazy over here. I remember the days, full of "me time", where I could spend hours with a book at Starbuck's. Mind you, I wasn't pleasure reading; it was for school. But still, some alone time. *sigh*

Stacey over at Curtain Call got me going with her inspiration photo of hot chocolate.

So I combined my hot chocolate with Newsprint DSP, to represent my love for a book and a hot drink. I also used Mojo Monday layout #159.

I used the swirly pattern from Backgrounds 1 texturz plates to give my background some steamy dimension.

Stamps: Like It A Latte; Paper: Cajun Craze, Almost Amethyst, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Newsprint DSP; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Almost Amethyst, Cajun Craze; Accessories: Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Oval punch, Backgrounds 1 texture plates, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!
