One Last Trip

Hello, my crafting friends!

Today, I’m saying good-bye to 2014 with a layout about our last trip of the year.

My husband and I love to travel and we finished out the year with a long weekend in New Orleans.  December is our wedding anniversary and our (still!) beloved New Orleans Saints were playing at home against their arch rival, the Atlanta Falcons.  I’m still not ready to talk about that game, but we had a wonderful weekend nonetheless!

One of the best things about New Orleans is the history and the character of the architecture.  There was a Starbucks down the block from our hotel with amazing décor and charm.  Exposed beams, high ceilings and a chandelier made of old horns – loved it!

I snagged a few of the cards they had out on the counter describing some of the coffees and used those in my layout.  I also used one of my new favorite techniques – embellishing right on a photo.  I used some rub-ons that just seemed to fit the mood.  

NOLA Starbucks by Moanica Caston.  Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper: Crate Paper and Gossamer Blue; Wood veneer and flair: exclusives of Scraptastic Kit Club; Rub-ons: Maggie Holmes;  Letter alphas: American Crafts.

Here’s wishing you all the best in the coming new year! 
Happy 2015!
