For Coffee Lovers

Good morning!  Well, today is the first day of my 55th year.  That sounds a bit old.  I think I'll stick with saying I'm 54.  Oh, what's the difference?  Age is just a number.

I was so overwhelmed by my friends on FB leaving me happy birthday wishes.  I felt so loved!!!  Thank you, one and all!!!
Do you love coffee?  I sure do!  One of the things I miss the most when I'm traveling is my DH bringing me my cup of coffee as soon as I get up.  He makes it just the way I like it!

This is a layout I made last week for Paper Niche, demonstrating Lindy's Gang Embossing Powders.  You can see the whole process on their blog for Thursday, August 2nd.

This layout I designed over the weekend using Jenny Bowling papers, Canvas Corp papers & burlap and Maya Road burlap banners.  Starbucks was nice enough to give us the cup holders to give it some authenticity.

These are real coffee beans glued to the burlap "bag", so the layout is going to have a nice aroma!

Thanks again for all of your birthday wishes.  Have a wonderful and blessed day!


  1. Hi Beatriz, I agree age is just a number and it doesn't have to define us. Being a coffee drinker myself I loved your l/o's. What a great idea to place real coffee beans on the burlap bag.

  2. Doesn't matter how old you are, you still look so young!! :)
    I don't drink coffee but I love your layouts!! take care

  3. It LOOKS like real coffee in those cups!!! Ohhh, the bag of coffee beans -- love all the details in this layout! Beautiful colors and love how you colored the doily so delicately.

    Beatriz, I love-love this outstanding LO; it's just magnificent!!!

    My sweet friend, you were made to feel loved for your BD because you are!!!
