Share Warmth

It was great for us to not only see both Greg and his fiance Michelle over the holidays, but it was great for us to see how close they really are. The slogan "Share Warmth" from Panera's restaurant fit the couple and the season.

The couple trivia was gathered from one of the bridal shower games we played Sunday. "1st Date: Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets" "Been a Couple: 9 Years" "The Proposal: New Year's Eve 2010" "Favorite Restaurant: Melting Pot" "Favorite TV Show: Doctor Who"

To make the background, I used a digital template by Betsy Tuma called "Weavers".
I scanned Greg's shirt to get the colors I wanted.
The template had separate layers:
I colored each layer to match his shirt by using the eye dropper tool and the blending mode "color overlay".
I printed this woven background on a light grey cardstock.

Cindy, Thanks for stopping by! In regards to your question.. Yes - the Michaels App pulls up coupons that you just show at the register! Also has additional coupons only sent to mobile devices! No more digging for that paper coupon in your purse only to realize you cant find it!! ( then find it when you are in car pulling away ) LOL!! Have a great weekend :)
