Oceanfront Dining

It is another cold day here on the East Coast, so why not scrapbook some more honeymoon layouts? I used more of Tessa's new January Sampler and my Fine and Dandy by My Minds Eye papers.

I had a lot of scenic pictures of the oceanfront restaurant we ate at one evening. I printed one of them 5x7 because it turned out so beautiful!

The mustard colored felt and lace lollipop flower with the pearl center is exclusive to the sampler package. I used the 2 leaves that also came in the kit to embellish it.

I added interest to my circle mat by cutting small pieces from the sheer ribbon, making a loop, and securing with a brass brad. 4 feet of ribbon is included in the sampler - and Tessa packages it so pretty on a clothespin with a stick pin (which I am going to use on a future project!)

For the second page of my double layout, I used the current sketch at Artful Delight.

I created a collage of pictures from our meal, the view from inside the restaurant, and the sign.

I kept it simple with another flower from the kit - a cardboard flower dyed with daffodil shimmery spray and accented with a shiny brad. It matches the colors/mood of my page perfectly!

I brought the 2 pages together by using brass brads on the corners of the photos on the second page and small strips of patterned paper on my journaling box.

Be sure to stop by Precocious Paper to see the beautiful embellishments she just recently updated for Valentine's Day! Gorgeous!

Happy MLK Day!
