This LO was created for a challenge over at Swirlydoos. We needed to use at least 2 papers that were not typical scrapping materials.
I used a wine bottle label from my favorite wine. I used a "take out paper bag from our favorite restaurant in Naples FL. I punched coffee filter paper and misted it and I used some music paper from my husbands music book stash.
Now at first glance this is NOT a terribly romantic page, however for me, this screams of romance. I'm sure you are scratching your head saying, huh?
Well this is our fav restaurant. We dream of this place all year until we make our annual visit from NY to Naples FL. Then we order a nice glass of wine, eat our wonderful meal and top it off with key lime pie and a great cup of coffee. Usually cannot eat it all so we grab a take home bag and bring the rest to savor later. ohhhhhh man!
This is the actual bag from the take-home desert. I knew I could scrap it later. :) I was half hoping I could still smell the aroma of the deeeeeelishious key lime pie on the bag. Since I could not, it simply means another visit is due soon.
As for the music paper, we love to see a musician that has been entertaining there for years. Our hearts are warmed when we step into Tommy Bahamas and see our favorite man playing to the dining crowd. My husband is a musician so he completely enjoys a talented musical entertainer.
This is our romantic night out with all our favorite Florida memories.
You know the best part? My husband looked at it and just grinned and said with a dreamy smile, "ahhhhh Tommy's. Love your page- baby did you book our trip yet?"
I show him every page I do. He looks it over and sometimes says, "Nice, doll". LOL - he's not fooling me that he is being curtious and respectful. But this time, I knew he actually looked at the photo I picked and looked at the layout and it warmed his little manly heart.
