Hey Love!

When I opened my Portobello kit, I KNEW exactly what layout I was doing first.


My husband and I love to frequent our local small coffeehouse, where soft music plays in the background, delicious aroma’s
fill the air, the voices of other people talking softly nearby just take us away…
we go there to drink our favorite things, sometimes snack on an organic pastry or muffin & read as well as chat with each other.


I got some great photos of us there a few days ago. I took them on my cell and edited them in one of my apps, turning them
a deep chalky gray, reminiscent of an older era…(to me anyway, LOL!)


I saw that first gray sheet of patterned paper and KNEW it was THE paper for these photos.
Keeping it neutral enough with the blacks/grays and some gold…
then I thought..”what about a splash of color?” so there you have it, that’s where the word bubble stickers
from the kit come in to play. they were the perfect POP needed to make this layout stand out.

In fact…this is one of my favorites I’ve made in a long time. I’m framing it for my family photo wall in my living room.
The perfect spot is waiting for it to be there.

Open up your Portobello kit today and be inspired by the papers, the embellishments, the colors.
more importantly…as your being inspired? HAVE fun creating!

Thanks for stopping by today.

    I love this layout! I have pictures of my husband and I at our favorite coffee shop that I need to scrapbook. I was struggling with the gray paper but now I am inspired!!!
