got evidence?


Happy Friday! In my forum hopping on Scrap Freak, I happened upon Bree's blog, Get Meaningful. She posts challenges that get you up and out of the norm. Her focus is on journaling and writing about topics that you don't usually think about, let alone scrap.

This past topic was EVIDENCE. The idea that you leave behind a trail that explains who you are and what you are about. Deep, huh?! I love the idea of it. I have read each of her past few prompts and was never able to get one done. Until this one. I felt compelled since the idea of our own evidence was intriguing.

This page is about my coffee. I really do love coffee, and I'm one of the few people that can drink a cup at 9 p.m. and still sleep like a rock. Coffee is soothing to me and just oh so tasty! But as some of my friends and loved ones know... don't you dare put sugar in my coffee! The best way to drink it... Dunkin Donuts iced coffee with caramel flavor and cream. YUM!! I'm probably sipping one right now as you read this!



Supplies: My Mind's Eye (pp), Prima (flowers), American Crafts (Thickers), Karen Foster (letter stickers), Creative Chaos (journaling spot), random vintage buttons from an antique shop (thanks, mom!!!) and twine

Diana, what a great theme! I'm always thinking of ways to show our life in its simplest form and for some reason morning coffee never crossed my mind. I'm going to have to give it a go. Thanks for the inspiration!

I just love this layout! And, girl, we are soul mates! Almost...I, too, drink coffee all day and all night until I go to bed, although I gotta have my raw sugar in it (love the crunch in iced coffee, the "brulee" taste in hot) but other than a little 1/2 & 1/2, don't you DARE come near my coffee with any of that nasty flavoring!!! Ha ha ha!!!
