Click on the photos to view them up-close! I love Hot Chocolate and I almost always drink it from one of my many antique teacups. This teacup is from a set of china that belonged to my husband's parents. The china was passed down to us and will one day be passed down to our son. The china pattern is SUNRISE by HOMER LAUGHLIN COMPANY. Be sure to leave me a comment to let me know how you liked my layout!
This is a close-up of the matted picture on my layout. I added grosgrain ribbon photo corners to the photo and matted the photo with the butterfly cardstock. I went around the edges of the butterfly photo mat with a "Chocolate" stamp pad. Then, I used 3-D foam Tape under the photo mat to pop it off the page....you can't really see that in the photos, but it looks amazing the way it pops off the page. I added an antique dangling crystal heart earring to the photo corner. I cut the screw part of the earring off with wire cutters and glued the earring to the photo corner using Liquid Glass. Liquid Glass is a VERY strong clear adhesive that works great for holding embellishments on your artwork.
