Coffee Solves Everything Layout
Studio 75 plus the Lessology Cupcake Challenge!

Hello one & all!!  I have a new layout up on the Studio 75 blog HERE today.
My dedicated post is HERE.

Take a look there if you are interested in the products I used as they are all
 available from their online store HERE.  Any South Africans wanting
 anything I can order together with my Design Team order next time
 & postage will work out cheaper for you that way :)

The papers & circular elements all come from Studio 75, from 3 different collections!

Just like Prima, everything from Studio 75 works well with everything else so buying
their papers is always a great investment due to their versatility.  I NEVER buy
themed papers & avoid them as much as possible, favouring the more subtler
"wallpaper prints" as I call them, that can usually be found on the B sides
of brighter papers.  As I like to embellish a lot I prefer a calmer base!!

See the LESSOLOGY CHALLENGE HEREThe challenge is to use a cupcake
 in some form, plus one upcycled item.  The paper coaster that says "Coffee 
Solves Everything" comes from my favourite chain of coffee shops here, 
Mugg & Bean, & comes under every cup of coffee ordered. 

 Needless to say I have a stack of them by now!!   

I've used 3 images of cupcakes - 1) the photo  2) The circular element & 
3) The cupcake (case only) underneath the photo strip - ( shiny & pink!)
I am loving these photo strips I get printed these days by a new local
 company - very hipster I think!!  They work really well for mobile
phone photos as mine are not of a very good quality :)

Thanks for looking today!  Don't forget our current challenge going on at 
Studio 75 right now HERE - MIXED MEDIA TAG - easy peasy so enter 
right?! Great first prize & merit winners voted on by the DT :)

And there is also time to play along with LESSOLOGY too!!

I so agree that good coffe fixes anything! I am now up to 3 coffees a day so you can imagine there are a lot to be fixed lol
I really like this page, it is fun and unique and well balanced but with lots and lots of details! Your way with the Studio 75 paper is amazing!
