Lasting Memories #263

Good Sunday morning! I hope you are having a great weekend and are making lots of memories! We have had a beautiful weekend so far. The sun is shining and there's a bit of a chill in the air - especially at night. That makes it a perfect time for a post about a hot drink!

This week's challenge over at Lasting Memories is just that. Scrap about a hot drink and the technique is to use a stencil on your layout.

Supplies used - Simple Stories Sweater Weather paper and ephemera pack,  Alphas - small letters - Basic Grey, corrugated alphas - Pebbles, Stencil - Studio Calico, Ink - Close To My Heart, Sequins.
I scrapped about my one hot drink love - hot chocolate! I am not a hot drink lover - even my coffee is iced - but when the cooler weather hits, I do like to have a hot chocolate - with lots of marshmallows - once in a while.
I tried my hand at sponging some ink on with my stencil. I don't have a lot of these types of stencils, so I was a bit limited with what I could do. At first I didn't think I was going to like it at all. In fact, I thought about tossing it out and starting completely over. I stuck with it and in the end I really like how it turned out. It may just be a recent favorite!
I used this sketch #451 from August 10 from the Scrapbook Challenges blog. I really liked all of the layers behind the photo.

Check out the Lasting Memories blog and see the other design team member's creations. I hope you find some time to play along with our challenges!
That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
