Yummy Hot Chocolate

I have a layout hot off the press... err, straight from the scrapbook room... to share today!

I was browsing the Internet yesterday, and I found a sketch at Cocoa Daisy that I really liked and wanted to use for a layout. One of the very first things I diecut with my Silhouette Cameo was some cute Polaroid shapes from Kim Watson's blog. Once I saw the sketch at CD, I knew I could use my new diecuts! I also used my Silhouette Cameo for the title. Font is Lobster from

As for the products I used on my layout, I used the Peppermint collection from Crate Paper. It's the Christmas line from last year. I thought the colors were perfect for a hot chocolate page. They're not exactly Christmasy, but yet they are wintery and cozy. At first I diecut all 3 words in the title with my Cameo, but I didn't like how it looked with all of it diecut, so I replaced the "hot" with Thickers! Perfect balance, right? Silhouette Cameo AND Thickers. Oh yeah.

Well, that's it for today! Be sure to check out the Cocoa Daisy blog here to see the sketch challenge and all of their other inspiration!
