La King's Confectionery

Shimelle's challenge for Day 6 in The 20 Project class was to let Pinterest help (and not hinder) in the scrapbooking process. She gave herself a short time to look for INSPIRATION, then created a layout using the sketch she chose. Rather than scroll Pinterest myself, I simply used the same sketch that Shimelle used for her sample layout.

The sketch showed two smaller landscape photos, however I used one 6x4 photo that arrived with a recent order of photos from Shutterfly . . . 


and one 5x5 square photo that I'd printed at home as part of a collage of photos from this day.


I included three embellishment clusters and used two different letter stickers for my title.


The lined patterned paper worked perfectly for my journaling about this great soda fountain & candy shop in Galveston!


Do you have a favorite candy shop that you like to visit while traveling?

Love the quote under the journaling---which I also love done in the green ink! Looks like a FUN day!

That looks like a dangerous place! Really happy layout. You were wise to just go with the first inspiration. I use Pinterest to save pictures I come across and know I will want to go back again - but I no longer spend lots of time just cruising through many boards. I'd rather be scrapping.

Your layout is great! I love the embellishment clusters. I need to try that more on my layouts. You certainly rose to the challenge!

We have a great sweet shop here in town, where they make their own sweets and hold regular demonstrations. It's fun to visit.

I love how this page design has plenty of room for journaling and those two great photos which show both you and the surroundings.

Such a cheerful fun layout - I like the green background. I avoid candy stores - resistance would be futile of my part.

Oh that is a fun set of pages. Glad to hear that you've been getting so much inspiration from the class. I like the quote and sweetie wrappers/stickers too.
