indulging my addiction

this LO came together for an Indulgences sub call for Scrapbook Memories. It's a hybrid LO.
I photographed my ice coffee sitting on a white freezer against a white wall. Then i sized it to fit as a 5x7 pic on the 12x12 white bazzil CS. Played with levels, curves, brightness and contrast. Used the really soft edged dodge tool to blend the ice coffee background into the cardstock so there are no definite edges. And had some fun with a brush.
The title is American Craft alphas and Heidi Swapp Fat Cat alphas. Ran some ribbon thru the printer, attached to lace which both are pinned to the CS with brads and hatpin.
There's a bit of a shadow from the pin when scanning so try to ignore that.
My current fav LO
and yes it does say on the ribbon 3 or 4 a day, every day. Lucky it's not real coffee. I'd be soooo wired.

wow at 3-4 a day - so much milk!

sorry to break it to you Tiff but it DOES contain caffeine....... it just didnt sound right to me that it didnt so i did some googling. (not to prove you wrong but just for my own curiosity)

this is from a site called 'national foods' and is Australian.


Farmers Union Iced coffee has 45 g per 250ml and the feelgood has the same amount (that is for 250 not the bigger size)
