Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Sweet
It's time for a new challenge at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Sweet.
I went with the idea of a warm drink and giving a card to someone who is sweet!
I started with the plaid based on the inspiration photo. Then I found a Verve stamp set with a cute little mug and a fun sentiment. I originally just had a white background but it seemed really flat, so I dug out a scrap of woodgrain.
Do you like the real mug in the background? A few months ago, I decided I needed to spend more time staging my photos just to add some interest. My family teases me unmercifully about this because for awhile I was coming home with bags of props every day for my "staging". Now we can be in a grocery store or an auto repair place or a shoe store and they will see some small little knick-knack and yell "staging!" It's cute, but very annoying. When I was ready to photo this card, I didn't have a good prop - so I grabbed my son's favorite coffee mug. I thought he'd be impressed. Instead he said in a disgusted voice "Mom. Not everything is for staging."

I hope to see you playing along with our "sweet" challenge!
