Morning Glory

* Please note this post has been updated to remove the links since In the Small Things has retired.  🙁

Do you drink coffee??  Are you one that your eyes don’t quite open up and have you ready to face the world, much less three demanding kids, without your morning cup?  Well I won’t say that fits me to a “T” but I do love my coffee (in my case espresso and LOTS of milk, with chocolate syrup) and sometimes when my day gets hard I’ll make an extra cup.  There is just something about sitting there holding my nice warm mug as we work through school or what problem we are trying to solve today.

As soon as I saw the position open with In the Small Things, I knew I had to download the Morning Glory kit and make a layout with my story of my mug.  🙂

I absolutely love the colors, the coffee mugs, the scattering of beans, the coffee mug stamp and it will get in on another layout…  it just didn’t fit on this one 🙁

So I created my layout, with the story behind, “my mug”.  One of two I reach for the in cupboard each morning.  In fact I’ll clean it actually by hand (yes be shocked) if I didn’t get it through the dishwasher and my husband’s big Maine mug is not available.  I just like how it feels and fits in my hand.

You have one of those right?  (I think everyone does…) 🙂

I am still working on my photography skills but I took the picture where my mug is usually sitting, right here by my computer so there is a little glare there that I tried to cover up, I think it worked.

The one thing I learned while creating this layout??  Free form journaling is great… except when you do not type it into Word first so there as spelling errors.  After you have uploaded the picture to a few places…  Oh well.  🙂

So to pick up your copy of In the Small Things Morning Glory you can either go to Polka Dot Plum or Stuff to Scrap.  Enjoy!

Check back soon, there might just be a freebie from my layout for you to enjoy!

Blessings, Rebecca
