I love brunch. Mostly because I love the idea that you can eat breakfast foods late into the morning and man, do I love me some breakfast carbs. It’s kind of like cheating and eating dessert for breakfast more often than not and what’s not to love about that?!

Needless say I was pumped when the Breakfast Favorites kit showed up. I had the perfect breakfast pics for it too. Breakfast at Norma’s at The Parker Palm Springs is a MUST DO if you visit Palm Springs. The breakfast is delicious but the hotel itself is a sight to be seen. I LOVE it there! In an effort to knock another layout off my list in my Palm Springs travellers notebook I set out to document said breakfast.

I used two coordinating pool-like papers from the Bookworm Travelers Notebook kit for my background first. Then I chopped a couple pieces of notebook paper from the same kit to give me a nice yellow base for my title card + pics. I added layered strips of washi tape to ground the layout so it wasn’t floating on the page.

I knew I wanted to use the ‘Breakfast’ card as part of my title so I stamped ‘@Norma’s’ using the new Brooklyn alpha stamp on some velum and attached it to the ‘breakfast’ card. Kind of like a little take on ‘Breakfast @ Tiffany’s’. I played around with placement but the card looked too tidy so I ripped the left hand side to give it a less crisp look, added a couple staples and two enamel dots.

On the left I created a mat for my pics - 3 in total - that I turned into a little flip up. I layered a couple label stickers from the main kit under my photo mat before adhering it. I stamped ‘Life is better with carbs for breakfast’ beside my photo and layered some enamel arrows + staples over my label stickers.

Lastly, I stamped ‘There has never been a sadness that can’t be cured by breakfast food’ onto the back of a journaling card from the Breakfast Favorites kit and tore the edge to mimic my title card. I added it to the top of the page with some staples and a thin strip of washi, added a little flag from a scrap piece of paper and two enamel dots.

I have a feeling this kit will go quickly so be sure to snag this one up on release day at noon if you love breakfast - and documenting it - as much as I do!
