I am currently taking suggestions and critiques for this two-page lo. This might be my response to SHCG's newish blog feature, Monthly Challenge (MC) #3 posted by Ammara, which is to scrap a favorite summer vacation memory with at least 3 journaling spots. While it technically wasn't a vacation, it was a day off for me.
All stickers will be flat once this spread is ready for the scrapbook. The only pieces that are adhered are the tan strip and the lace border at the bottom. (Lovin' this beautiful punch, btw.) They are a nod to the rail in the pictures and the doilies on our plates. The wood mats are from DCWV's The Lodge stack which are also a nod to the wood trim in the bg of the pics.
I did the journaling on restaurant tab pieces. The one with the menu list will also contain a rubon date.
The restaurant alphas are a little crowded, which is why I usesd the spoon as a divider, but that is the smallest setting for that Cricut font. The O is purposefully tilted because that's the way it appears on the restaurant's logo.
The sun and moon are symbols of my schrub and seester that had a specific meaning to me on our way to the restaurant.
I will be shading the oval on the right to look more like a saucer (which is from the From My Kitchen Cricut cart), and I chose green numbers to represent a parsley garnish. I thought it'd be cute to substitute a knife for the I and fork for the Y. None of the stickers are fully adhered which is why they all look crooked right now.
I will be inking the white mats in brown of the two 4x6 focal pics which are triple matted, yet another nod to the bg (note the framed art on the walls).
