3 February Challenges : What's on the Menu at SDD, Font at GS & Word Play at SBB

Last month I missed the January What's on the Menu challenge because I was sick the entire last half month. So, this month I wouldn't want to miss it again. I love this challenge because you could never guess what you have to scrap just by seeing the menu. It's kinda like buying cat in a hat... a mysterious ingredients you only find out once you ordered something. It's exciting...!

This time I chose to orderered : Nachos, BLT and Sprite. And Yvonne, the hostess, sent me "the translation" a few days ago :
Nachos - I would like you to scrap about a date that you went on with your spouse, boyfriend or significant other.
BLT - You must use 2 different alpha in your title,
2 different flowers
2 fasteners
4 different papers, with the top paper at an angle
1 font.
Sprite - 3 photos lined up in any direction on your layout.

OK, I have to put my thinking hat first to look for ideas.... And after some deep thinking, voila... I decided to use my China trip photos in 2010 with my dear husband. Yesterday, with my $5 Gift Certificate I won from Ginger Scraps LOTW, I bought this kit called Colors of My Life - Green from Jen Yurko. There was a $1 sale on all Buffet Menu from 1-7 Feb 2012, so I could bought 5 different mini kits all together. What a bargain! I intended this kit for my 365/52 Project, but since the color tone matched the photos, I could't resist to try my hands on it. Wonderful papers and elements... love it...

I seldom use more that 3 papers on my layout, but since the requirement said so, I just stack papers with the upper one on an angle. Not a bad arrangement, huh...? I personally love the alpha combination for the tittle. So cute... loving it! As for the font, I used Pea Christen for the title and Veteran Typewriter for the journaling.

Guess what? I submitted it again for Font challenge at Ginger Scraps by changing the journaling font into Travelling Typewriter and for Word Play challenge at Scrapbook-Bytes by changing the title "adventure" into "perfect day". Yippee....
