Happiness In A Can

Coca-cola, potato chips, and over-priced burgers fueled our parade-watching along St. Charles Avenue on an overcast and chilly Mardi Gras Day 2013. Since soft drinks are not everyday at our house, Kevin really enjoyed being able to indulge! Gulping down all that sugar and carbonation was an integral part of his celebration.


 

Scraptastic's Everything I Am kit, one of their March selections, was used with the photo below. Although I rarely print other than full-color photos, this one required a radical adjustment. Kevin was decked out in purple, green and gold stripes, the Coke can was red, and a bright yellow jacket lay on back of the chair on which he was sitting. The sepia-tinted photo was a better choice, and compliments the background paper rather nicely.


The Heidi Swapp epoxy "happiness" sticker, from a previous Scraptastic kit, was a perfect start to my title, with navy alphas finishing it off. Additional supplies include: Lily Bee and Glitz patterned paper, Teresa Collins die cuts, Prima flowers, and a Scraptstic exclusive Ormolu flair.

Cute title!
Love how you changed the photo and your choices of colors!

My daughter is the same way. It is always a special treat to get Sprite when we are out or at a party! :)

The sepia tinted photo works brilliantly, and I love the happiness in a can title. I'm a little addicted to diet coke myself. x
