Brew Fest Memorabilia with Susie

Hello and welcome! Susie hosting the blog today and I am sharing a layout I created for this month's Memorabilia Challenge!

One of my favorite things about this time of year is all of the fall festivals. Recently, my husband and I have started to attend an annual brewfest held at a nearby park.

There are a wide variety of beers on tap and the vendors are always handing out ephemera - coasters, bumper stickers, window clings, etc. Connie challenged us to use memorabilia this month so the timing was perfect to incorporate these cool items from one of my husband's favorite breweries.  I chose a piece of paper from the Serenade Collection for the background because I really liked the subtle pattern already incorporated into the paper.

I searched through my stash of Quick Quotes embellishments and pulled out some sentiments and chipboard die cuts that matched my theme and colors.

I could not resist the opportunity to custom color the title of my layout.  I chose Orange Slice PowderPuff Chalking Ink and applied it to some canvas alpha stickers from my stash.

I played around with placement of all of my elements until I was happy with the arrangement and then I just stuck everything down! See how well the color of the title matches the cool drink coaster we brought home?

These die cut chipboard tags from the Earth Wind Fire Collection help balance the visual elements and add a little more dimension. 

Here's a peek from another angle. You can see I added a die cut chipboard ticket sticker and also managed to work in the business card from the brewery, too.

I hope you will join in on our challenge this month. You can find all of the details HERE.
