 My Shop that I am sharing with you today is for one of my FAVORITE things, and since I had some technical difficulties, and am posting late, it will be my BEST FRIEND at work tomorrow...can anyone guess???  You got it.  COFFEE.  My friend Paulette started the ball rolling a few years ago talking about her Keurig machine, and let me tell you, Keurig should have been paying this gal a commission, as I can't even begin to tell you how many machines were bought because of her, lol.
Anyway -- onto my project.  This will be sent to a dear friend of mine -- who also has a Keurig, and I'll be packing it with chocolate and some K-cups...I know I'd be thrilled to get it...I hope she will too.  Here's the front view:
NOW - I'll tell you, I used the Home Improvement, Shoppe Window, and On Display digital images for this project as well.  The stamp of the door was a little small for my project, so I went into PSE and made it a bit larger, to make it fit more with my store front.  Now, do you see on the side there?  That window and the awning??  Well, the awning was also a digital image, I made that a wee bit larger, so when I used my stylus on the back and 'poofed' it out (yes, that's really a term, go ahead, look it up ;) ) it would still overhang the window frame a bit...here's a closer look:
Now, do you see those SUPER cute little treats in the window???  Yep, you guessed it.  MORE digi images.  The 'counter' the coffes and cupcakes are on is from the Home Improvement set, and the coffees and cupcakes are from On Display...I shrunk them to teensy-weensy size for a peek inside the coffee shop.  Up even closer:
To give dimension -- the 'counter' was mounted with dimensionals, and the window panel was adhered with 2 layers of dimensionals, to really make them POP.
I also have a card to share with you today -- and yes, it matches this cute little box...

I kept it a little more simple, left off the awning, I think it would have taken up too much room on the card front, don't you? (say yes...thank you ;) ).  Isn't that a SUPER CUTE sentiment???  It's from the On Display set --  Thanks for dropping by today -- be sure to make the rest of the stops, you never know WHO has the hidden treasure!!
