I Love Margaritas!

Hola... You know I love wine... but you should also know wine is not for just "drinking"... You taste wine, you get delight with every sip, you witness its evolution, because it's alive... and you pair it with food, and so on. Wine stands for special moments and not necessarily for party! However, when I want something cold (besides white or sparkling wines)... or maybe when the "ambience" calls for a nice tropical cocktail, one of the alcoholic drinks I definitely like is the MARGARITA! Oh, I love margaritas. So refreshing, full of flavor... the lime, the tequila, the salt... mmmmmmmmmmmmm... So I decided to make a mini album in honor to this delicious cocktail I enjoy when I can... And why not? I declare that my layouts, mini albums and special projects do not have to be only about birthdays, weddings, Christmas and special days. I love to make projects to inmortalize my feelings, my moments, or maybe that special anything on any day... hahahaha... Want to go for it? I collected some pictures to represent the different kind of shapes and styles of margaritas I've tried, and decided to put them in this mini album to always remember and honor its flavor. I will show you my pages and give attention to the journaling I will be reveiwing with each page... "I LOVE MARGARITAS... "... THIS ONE AT MEXICO WAS SURPRISINGLY LITTLE..." "... BUT THIS ONE'S NOT LITTLE AT ALL..." "... THIS ONE WAS MIXED WITH SANGRIA FLAVOR!" "... AND THIS ONE WITH THE CUP ON THE SIDE, OH MY GOD!..." "... DELICIOUS NO MATTER THE SIZE..." "... SHE'S TALL AND BEAUTIFUL, ON THE BORDER STYLE!" "... BUT MY FAVORITE MARGARITA IS THIS HOMEMADE... BY FAR." "... SERVED WITH ALL THE GOOD HOT FOOD THAT I CAN FIND..." Got it? I also included some coasters from places I've had margaritas. They are inserted as pages and surely add some interesting elements to the mini album.








This is how the mini album looks closed...



So, why not make a tribute to something simple in your life? I chose margaritas... Later I'll choose a favorite chair or corner of the house for a layout... or maybe that old table we've had forever deserves to be remembered in a special place...


I hope you liked my mini album... and the margaritas!!!
