8.5 by 11

Well. as always the weekend went way too quickly. It was a fun one for sure! How is it that Monday always gets here before we know it? Oh well...

I've been busy doing assignments and such recently and decided to take a break and scrap a photo I've had sitting on my table for a while. I chose to use this week's challenge sketch at Elle's Studio. Here's what I came up with.

 Notice anything? It's an 8.5 by 11 page! I hadn't made one in years, and did one for an assignment last week. I discovered that I really love this size! So, I made another.
 I think I might be hooked! I will never give up on my 12 by 12s, but I'm certainly going to be doing these more often.
 I used lots of Elle's tags on here. Along with some other goodies in my stash. One thing that made it really fun to do was that I could print right on my background paper.
 I did a white on white thing with the doilies and white letter stickers, too. Then, I used the colors from the picture as accent colors.
So, this is my tribute to my favorite food and drink!
I'm really excited to try some more.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. ;)
