Just finished this layout for the Scrapboxnz monthly challenge. Once again they feature June's wonderful photos, and tell the story of how cool it is to be able to sit outside in the city and have a coffee. It still gives me a buzz to do this, I remember going to Melbourne in '92 and'97 and coming home and wishing we had a cafe scene here in Dunedin, and boy we do now. One of the cooler cafe's has even got gorgeous jewel coloured shawls draped over the outdoor chairs to warm punters who want to brave the cold and sit outside. (Note to self: must do this this week.) However this layout tells the story of our city centre "the Octagon", gorgeous historic buildings, trees and cafe's, very cool. Enough of the travelogue, although I do recommend New Zealand visitors include Dunedin in their plans cos it's gorgeous, (no bias just fact).
For this layout I used Creative Imaginations Coffee Phrases paper, Cricut letters, (Plantin Schoolbook), Kelly Panacci flower stamps which I cut out and KP stitching stamps, Coluzzle file folder.
Tried to emulate the swirls on the coffee by stamping the letters with swirl stamps and Cocoa inkpad.
