For my first meal in Seattle last month, Joe took me to The Walrus and The Carpenter. I was so excited because this was on my bucket list thanks to Bon Appetit’s list of  20 Most Important Restaurants in America. The night was a dream. It’s a tiny little place with a tiny little open kitchen that the bar wraps right around. And the dishes coming out of there deliver huge on flavor. We had the best oysters I’ve ever eaten in my life. So good that we had to order a second round. Everything just made me smile. I can’t wait to make another trip for more.

I saved the menu and of course it went into my Project Life album:


I added it in using the Basic Grey Attach-Me stickers. The Foodie stamp set was perfect for adding some journaling to layer onto the menu. I just paperclipped it on there so I’d always be able to look back at the full menu. These are the best. I also used quite a few of my new gold Be Happy label stickers on the spread as well.



A little look at a new Kelly Purkey die – Eat Drink and Be Merry. I layered it with more papers from my Oct + Nov Project Kit (Persimmon paper pad still available.) Again, I just love these colors for fall!

For October, I’m thinking of switching it up and going the month in the 12×12 format. Just to keep things spicy. Have you done both sizes? Which do you prefer?
