Lasting Memories #362 Guest Designer "Plaids" and "Stuck?! Sketches" September Challenge

Hi Everyone! This weeks "Pattern" challenge #362 over at the Lasting Memories Challenge Blog is to use "PLAIDS" on your layout.   After digging through my paper "stash"  I pulled out some of the different plaid papers that I could find, and I also decided to use this awesome September 1st SKETCH from over at the "Stuck?! Sketches" Blog for inspiration for my layout.  I am linking it to their challenge too!
If you've been stopping by my blog this month - this is the 4th Guest Designer Layout I've completed for the Lasting Memories blog, and I have to say, it has been lots of FUN!  
I've had this really cool "Starbucks" Washi tape that I ordered on-line from the Washi Kingdom website, and thought it would work great with the plaids I found, and the "Starbucks Selfie" photo that I wanted to use!   I hope my layout inspires you to play along!
I love the travel mug I am holding in this photo, and I created a journaling tag out of a used Starbucks Gift Card, where I journaled why it is one of my favorites, by gluing a piece of white cardstock to the back of it.  I created a "pocket" behind the photo with 3M 3-D foam tape, so I could slip the journaling card in there. 
I punched a hole on the side so I could add some paper yarn as a pull.  I created a "pocket" behind the photo with 3M 3-D foam tape, so I could slip the journaling card in there.  

Of course I had to add some more Starbucks Washi Tape to the top of my journaling card too!!
I used a cardboard coffee cup sleeve that I had in my stash as an embellishment too - and I love these little plastic Starbucks embellishments I picked up at a Scrapbook Expo Show last year! You can also see a close up of the super cool washi tapes here too!!

I used Tonic Studio's Nuvo Mousse - in Citrus Green both around the edges of the dark green base page - and also used it in a Tim Holtz stencil too.  I LOVE the shimmer and dimension!  Oh and that little iPhone brad and the Selfie circle brad at the bottom of the photo are so much fun too!

Thanks for stopping by!  
I hope you play along with us at the Lasting Memories Scrapbook Challenge blog too!
