Post 441: Mixed Media Layout- Enjoy Today

Hi friends!

I'd like to share a Mixed Media Layout- "Enjoy Today". This was part of my DT work for Crafters Corner. All the details, including a pictorial, are HERE. The inspiration for the layout came from a photo of coffee, I simply love coffee, so I knew I had to create a layout around it. For me, coffee time is "me" time. I can sit, relax, be quiet for 5 minutes, sip my beverage, think & forget about other things. I wanted to remind myself that it is important to delight in the little things in life that give us joy & enjoy them today, to "live in the moment".

Here's a photo of the layout:
