My name is Graham


I saw a scrapbook sketch on a Facebook page and it inspired me to make a layout. The photos were taken in America. The top one was in Mount Dora in a lovely cupcake shop and the bottom one in Starbucks. Now over here I find their coffee rather bitter, much preferring Costa or an independent coffee shop. Over there Starbucks are everywhere and the coffee is much nicer. However they do seem to have a problem with Graham's name. It is easier to say mine which they write as Maryann usually. We are often amused by what they put on the cups and this must be the worst interpretation of his name.  

I had an old Starbucks card which I added to my layout. The title wooden sticker is from The Works. The denim washi tape and the scalloped border are from America.

I would like to enter this into the holidays challenge at Creative Inspirations.

Some friends have asked if we would like to go for a walk on the beach late afternoon and then a meal in the cafe/restaurant there. It is a nice quiet beach we are going to at Cartgap.

Brilliant page and a clever layout. I am surprised how many people have to put an 'e' on the end of my name. My nephews wife is also Carol and spelt the same as mine, yet on cards to me, she puts an 'e' on the end of mine!! Very few people get hubby's name right, Warwick, so he shortened it to Rick. W went to Gorleston beach today. I even had a paddle!! Haven't heard of Cartgap!! Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Carol S.xx

Gosh this made me laugh Marianne. My hubby Greg when he worked in LA for a while, would get the most hilarious 'name changes' from Starbucks! I think it's a 'thing', to see how diverse they can make it, LOL. He would get Creg, Crag, Grig, it was crazy. No one, ever, got his name, Greg, right! LOL. So I really got a kick out of seeing this layout. Such a fun way to commemorate that funny moment! Hugs, Wends xoxo
