Cafe Du Monde
A couple of summers ago, I went to New Orleans with my dear friend for a few days of escape (We have been besties since we were seventeen so if you do the math you will figure out that I have know her for about 200 years) ANYWAY...
We ate at Cafe Du Monde 2 mornings for breakfast but did I take a picture? No, I was too busy talking and stuffing my face with beignets, BUT I wanted to remember so I found this painting/drawing that I had bought as a souvenir and scrapped it. I didn't even need a title since the name is on the awning in the picture.
Two scrapping tips from this:
1) this isn't SU paper so I didn't have a solid to match - Eileen (glitter queen) suggested I used retired really rust and tone it down with some ink - of course she was right - and my buttons have the perfect background
2) the tag was me practicing the collage look - which I never seen to do as well as other stampers BUT - I strung an assortment of beads on a wire (hiding the end under a popped up cup) and I thought that was rather cute. So if you have some little beads in your stash - string 'em!
