Lunch at Cattleman's

After creating 19 layouts and completing a mini-album in May, I have not scrapped at all this month . . . until today. I pulled some photos from earlier this year and recorded a funny story. I layered several patterned papers and added some older stickers as embellishments.

Journaling reads: After a morning at Canton Trade Days, we called Rita to see if she wanted to meet us for lunch in Athens. She suggested we meet at Cattleman's Steak house just off the loop going toward town on one of the highways - not very good directions, but when we saw the Ole' West Steak House, I knew we were at the right place because there aren't that many places to eat in Athens. Of course, now it will always be Cattleman's to me!

It felt good to put together a layout after a three-week break, so I might just spend the rest of the afternoon scrapping. < big grin> Anyone else feel a great sense of creativity after a short break?

Great layout, Melissa! I definitely feel full of ideas since my imposed break while I was teaching last month. I have made 8 cards this afternoons and I just think they are all really cute lol Yep, feeling pretty good about myself ;)
