Freshly Made Sketches: I Need Some Coffee


Post 2 of 2 for today...click HERE for Mojo Monday!


One of my FAVorite fall paper collections is Persimmon by Basic Grey.  

cardstock:  recollections/110/white  paper:  basic grey/persimmon  stamps:  create a smile coffee first/uplifting  ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics  other:  create a smile cool cuts/stacked pierced banner + coffee chipboard

I've teamed it up with a bunch of fun products by Create a Smile!  Do you notice that I designed a To-Go Cup hot air balloon?










I was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches:


..and of course, the Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!
