Another cafe, another layout...

This layout is based on the July sketch at Life. Paper. Scrapbook.

The photographs were taken with my daughter's Android tablet. She created the photo montage in under a minute, using a really basic free photo collage app, and then we printed it at a photo booth while we were there.  Gotta love instant gratification! 

I was also inspired by these challenges:
* Just Two Mid West Girls ~ Bust that Journal Card Stash! {I used a sheet of kraft cardstock journal cards to make my layout base AND I used two Tattered Angels cards}
* Flying Unicorns ~ It's All About Wood {I used a wooden stirrer from Zarraffa's, and a wooden ladybird}
* Frosted Designs ~ Flowers and stitching {I frequently use lots of each on my layouts!  This layout has black machine stitching around the photograph and journalling cards, and I have also used hand stitching to secure the tangle of jute string.  And SIX different kinds of flowers...}
