Morning Inspiration

Isn't it fun to think about all the rituals that people have in the morning? There are so many quirks that people need or do to get their day started off right. One of mine is to eat an "apple a day." The sour taste of the apples make me feel a whole lot healthier and ready to go. Many of you know I am a huge fan of Little Yellow Bicycle and I cannot get enough of the Savor collection. It was the perfect palette and sentiment for creating this page.
The Savor collection comes with a set of banners that are ready to add to a page, but it also comes with these cardstock banners which I added some string and pop-dotted for the same effect, just with a different sentiment. The coral color jumps off the kraft background.
These little recipe cards from the Savor collection make a fantastic journal element that is large enough to use in place of patterned paper for an interesting balance to a project. I also love the softness of the paper lace border strips and the fun button flowers.
I have a really old set of Kurio chipboard letters in pale green that I found at Walmart. I gave them a face-lift by adding some metallic cream chalk to match the color of the granny smith apples. Reuse, Recycle, Refurbish....all that jazz.
I was so excited to meet up with the Little Yellow Bicycle Crew and my friend Suzanne Sergi at CHA! They are definitely kindred spirits and we had a blast hanging out. (left to right: Suzanne, Sharon, myself, Ross).

Thank you so much for stopping by -
