Garrison House

I didn't just appreciate the bounty of wines in Niagara-on-the-Lake but the food as well.

I was amazed by the number of incredible eateries and dining options there were. I still have the pounds to prove I sampled from a large variety of dining fares.

One of the most fun was The Garrison House. A pub style restaurant with great food and lots of it. I loved how they displayed the beers on tap by having the taps, literally, coming through the blackboard menu. The atmosphere was so great.

For this layout I used the May 20th sketch from Scrapmuch? designed by Laura Whitaker.

Because The Garrison House had such great pub fare, I thought the bottom of the menu could substitute for the suggested contrast at the bottom of the sketch and it worked out just great. The brass coloured bottle cap somehow seemed appropriate. :)

With Niagara-on-the-Lake so steeped in it's British history, I thought a background featuring some red, white and blue would be perfect. I'm very happy with how it all worked out.

Don't forget that Scrapmuch? publishes a sketch every Friday. You should never have a shortage of inspiration.

If you ever get a chance to visit The Garrison House you certainly won't be disappointed.

Honey Bunny

Turns out that bunnies aren't necessarily the cutest part of Easter.
Check out 'Honey Bunny' Brooklynn. 
It seems to me there's three cute bunnies in this photo.

Loved this sketch from Scrapmuch? designed by Laura Whitaker. 
I used an outline of an Easter Bunny in place of the suggested circular component of the design and lots of Spring coloured washi tape to match up with the photo and patterned paper.

Scrapmuch? releases a new sketch each Friday of the month. Be sure to check back often.
