More of Bon Appetit!

I couldn't leave well enough alone! I had to play with my set from "The Rubber Cafe" a little more! My set of stamps called "Bon Appetit" just sat there begging for more attention so, I caved! I did it! LOL! One year we were given this book on wines. Great gift for someone who likes wines right?! My DH drinks wine, I don't drink at all! Don't get me wrong here it is a great gift but, what if you wanted to make something to go with it..... something to mark the place of the next wine you wanted to try perhaps?! That's what I was thinking when I made the book mark below!

I used scraps from all my other projects with this set but I used StazOn brown ink to put the leaves on the cork.



I had gone to an Italian Festival with a friend a few weeks ago. While we were walking around I found the cork I used here and thought "I should keep this since you never know when you might need one"! I wasn't wrong! LOL! I needed it shortly afterwards! YEAH!

The next picture is using that same set "Bon Appetit" from "The Rubber Cafe" but this time I used it for accents on a scrapbook page! I had some pictures taken a few years ago (don't know who that fat chick is in the picture.....oh wait...it's me!) of when my family came to California (I was due any day if you can't tell!). We went to a few wineries in Napa Valley and my parents took this picture of me and my two younger brothers! The brother on the right (in the picture) is the same brother who was just up here to run the 10K at the USAF marathon and the other is the one who just got back from Iraq a month ago!


This is a shot of the whole layout. You can barely see them since they're on black but the bare spaces actually have dew drops in them! I used scraps from my other projects for this layout. The solid is from The Paper Company and the DP is from Bo Bunny Press! I used SU Purely Pomegranate ink for the stamped images.



This is a close up so you can see how the grapes look and totally tie in the wine/grape theme of the layout! The journaling for the page was written in the "frame".



Well, I hope you like my projects! I have one more to do and then it will be on to a new set with all sorts of new ideas I've already got going! LOL!

Until next time....
