Simple Pleasures May challenge by Tusia Lech

Tusia Lech here with May challenge :) I love drinking coffee, creating pretty things, watching sunsets and smelling flowers. Things do not have to be big, to be pleasant. 

The theme of the May challenge is SIMPLE PLEASURES

Please feel free to inspire yourself with anything, what simple pleasures mean to you. I created above board using some wonderful images from Pinterest - whether you prefer muted colors and simplicity or bold, fresh colors and profusion, I hope you find something for you.

I have created a layout inspired with raw wooden table photo colors and idea of drinking. My simple pleasure is drinking beer. Yes - beer. On the photo below you can see a mug filled with Pilsner Urquell beer. Different beers have different taste and I do not like every beer. But this specific photo of beer mug was taken by me in Praha - so in the country of Pilsner Urquell origin. I love seeing new places and I love just sitting outside and watching. So my whole layout is just about such simple pleasures :)

I have used Filmstrip from DarkRoomDoor (our sponsor this month), which created great climate for my layout. 

Metal elements and the tag on the left come from Zeus&Zoe Etsy store. Little pieces looking similar to bricks are Molossi chipboard (our sponsor this month). I covered them with golden Izink and then I sprayed with golden mist.

Background paper and some embellishments are 7 Dots Studio new collections - Nature Walk and Illumination. 

Do you feel inspired? We hope that you join our challenge this month :) And I can tell you that there will be some great Guests soon on the Berry71Bleu blog. But hush.... it's a secret :)
