Stop and Drink Some Coffee

The challenge over at Mix it Monthly is coffee.  I'm more of a tea drinker myself, but I couldn't resist...  Plus, a few weeks ago, I bought a painting from PiaRom/Connie, who sent it to me with a lovely assortment of napkins including the coffee napkin in this journal page.  A not so subtle hint I guess!

This page is the other side of the road trip page I prepped for my artsy trip in March.  It already had the signposts (from a terrific stencil designed by Teri Stegmiller), but I added the cups and the sentiment: "Live your sweet life one cup at a time."  The teacups are from a new Stencil Girl stencil that's in the works .... stay tuned!  In the background are Mary Nasser's map 6 stencil and my Medieval Leaves stencil. 

Check out all the great designs at Mix it Monthly!
