Scrapbook Circle | Be Real

For this month's Be Real post at Scrapbook Circle, I chose a photo from my phone that represents something I enjoy doing every day - having quiet "me" time with a cup of coffee.  I think most moms can relate to looking forward to a little bit of quiet time, when they can get it.

To frame my photo, I chose papers from the Today is Beautiful kit that closely matched the colors in my photo.  I also cut apart some of the paper strips from the February printable (included with the Today Is Beautiful kit).
To add interest to my title, I used the Scrapbook Circle exclusive vellum "hello" die cut card and then spelled out the words "quiet time" using the Authentique petite type crush alpha stickers.

To embellish my layout I chose the Crate Kiss Kiss Thickers in Gold, Serendipity puffy sticker, and ephemera pieces from the Dream Big add-on.  I also added some simple machine stitching and splashes of white paint.
 Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my post!
