Lasting Memories Challenge #47

This weeks challenge over at Lasting Memories is all about distressing.  Who doesn't love this fun technique...especially with all the great vintage inspiration out there!

This is a page I did a couple years ago of a trip to the original Starbucks location in Pike Place Market, Seattle.  My favourite thing about this page is that I actually used scraps.  I cut up a coffee cup and got some coffee bean labels.  That in combination with the Starbucks gift bag I tore up for the background gives my page a distressed out fashioned look.

Make sure to check out Lasting Memories to play along!


  1. I so love your layout. Wants me to go grab a cup of star bucks right now even though it's like 100 degrees outside, no lie. Seriously though, I love that you used original star bucks items and made it look distressed. Great job
