You're the cream in my coffee .......

CG88 : Colour Challenge
Coffee and Cream

When I saw that this month's colour challenge on Gingershap Creations was Coffee and Cream, the lovely song from the show Hold Everything came into my mind immediately.  I have sung the song often on the stage and I just love the words.  I have often thought it would make the basis of a scrapbook page!  Browns and creams are also my favourite colour combination, so I really enjoyed putting this layout together.

As with all scrapbooking layouts, working with the photograph always brings back happy memories.  This was my husband and I on our first date - a pretty "posh" do!  We do look so incredibly young! 

There are some fantastic entries in this challenge and the design team have also provided some wonderful inspiration.  Click the link below for the Challenge page on Gingersnap Creations:

GC88 Colour Challenge : Coffee and Cream

The words I have chosen come from the first verse of the song:

You're the cream in my coffee, I'm the salt in your stew
You will always be - my necessity, I'd be lost with you!
