I heart coffee layout!

Hello, friends!

Today's project is a scrapbook layout that I made this week using the wonderful Love You A Latte cartridge. As some of you might know from things I said on my other blog, that I really love coffee. Recently my Tassimo stopped working and I was heartbroken because my brothers gave it to me for Christmas several years ago. They typically get me nothing at all or something that no one would want. I know they mean well, so I never complain. However, this was a total winner and I have used it practically everyday since. When it broke I went out the next day and bought a Keurig because it came highly recommended by Joy. I really value her opinion and she was 100% on the money! I like this machine even more than the other, but am still sad that my wonderful gift had to be tossed out.

When the Love You A Latte cartridge came out Joy told me I had to do a layout about my story, because that is what scrapbooking is all about after all! We do it to tell stories.

The paper is from Close To My Heart.
I cut the mug out at 6". I cut the 'I' out at 1" using the American Alphabet cartridge.


Thanks so much for stopping by! I made a card yesterday that I will post tomorrow, so make sure you check back in!

Also, don't forget that this week is Hello Thursday! I can't wait to show you what is being released!

I can't start my day without my Cuisinart Kuerig coffee maker!! It, too, was a gift from my brother (and his family), since it is far beyond my price range! LOL! I absolutely love your layout as I can totally relate to it! I would be heartbroken if something happened to mine!

What a great way to commemorate such a thoughtful gift from your brothers. Although appliances don't last forever they apparently knew what you would appreciate. That is more special than the actual gift itself. :)
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful LO! :) Enjoy your morning brew.

Love your layout. I really want that Lite cartridge--they're getting harder to find in stores. My Walmart never seems to have them.--Pat N.

So cute.

Ladybug said...

Hey, Melanie, did you know that Tassimo had a recall of some of their machines and they were sending out parts for it? We had to do that. Maybe that's why your machine bit the dust?
