Were getting down to the end of LOAD216 just one more day left, today :) But this one is from yesterday's load, Day 28: Food. I have been wanting to do this layout a few times this month but I had to find the picture I took with the hubby's camera that day. So finally took the time last night and located the picture :) the other ones I got off the internet, but the one inside the restaurant is the one I took. While I was looking I come across a few more pictures that I need to scrap too, oh boy!
When we went to Altoona, PA to see the RR Museum and Horseshoe Curve, we decided to grab supper before getting on the road to head home. We stop when we saw the sign for this place, we both enjoy Mexican food. OMgosh! were we pleasantly surprised about this place, it is an Authentic Mexican restaurant :) Yes and their chips and salsa homemade you can tell swoon!
I got my background colors from outside of their building. Also the stars representing the rating of this establishment and the hearts cause we loved it so much! I saved their business card for use on the layout, I thought the recipe card appropriate here for a mat. The 2 word strips come from 2 signs they have hung up on their walls. Our Casa is Your Casa you see when you walk in and The best place to be is together sign is on the wall among all the stuff they have on the walls (like crackle barrel has)
I used the sketch over at Sketches in Thyme it was this past week's sketch

I really enjoyed using this sketch :)
The business card, word strips and my journaling
 The photo block. The have these very festive backs on their chairs I had to take a picture of them, the man in the picture was our waiter, very nice person and the place was cool to see and very friendly to be in. The picture of those chips and they serve it with 3 different sauces we just loved the red salsa would love that recipe to make it here at the house.

I tried a photo on an angle so you can see the glitter effect of the letters and I scattered dots that was on the Alpha sheet around the layout too. I used my current counterfeit kit: Color Splash for my layout and the pennants come from last month's kit.
