March Simple Stories Sn@p - Part 1

I'm getting caught up on my March Simple Stories Life Documented. I am continuing this month with my monthly dividers.  This one is a bit wider than the one for February and the tab on top is offset from February so you can see both tabs for each month at the same time. I created this one using just regular Bazzill cardstock, created the template in Word, ran the cardstock through my printer to print the word "March" on it and then covered the back with green houndstooth paper from an old no name kit I picked up at TKMaxx.  I have to say at the time I didn't really like that paper then but I now wish I had more of it as I love it!

SUPPLIES | Background paper is the placemat paper that I scanned into my computer and then printed out onto white Bazzill cardstock. All the red stickers are by Simple Stories and the white chipboard stickers are American Crafts Thickers called Kitten.
This post is dedicated to my craving for The Mission Burrito in Reading.  Sometimes I am all right when I get a mad craving for American food and typically it usually passes as does my melancholy for America, but sometimes it just takes over and no matter what I do, I just gotta have it! This time I knew that homemade enchiladas or beef nachos just wasn't gonna cut it.  It was actually Simon that found this place, The Mission, originally, which is located in the Oracle in Reading.  I LOVE this place as the food is like it is in San Francisco in The Mission area of the city, or at least as close as you could get in the UK.  One Friday night, the craving for Mexican American food came on and I hoped it would pass as there is not much around here in the way of good Mexican food.  There used to be a great place in Marlow called Pachanga's, that was pretty authentic but it went out of business a few years back.  So disappointing!

 As we sat eating our ginormous burritos (actually they're not that big really, compared to America, I just took a close up of the burrito so it looks a lot bigger than it really is) I noticed a littel postcard caddy on the counter that had feedback cards in them.  I pulled one out and this is what I found on the other side.  What a great card and my first thought was "I'll take a few of these for my book. I can use these".  And use it I did!  I love it! Above is the front of the card and posted below is the back of the card, which I altered.  I simply took a large PL Sunshine card, trimmed the edges of it and stuck it to the back of the feedback postcard.  I will use it for my journalling!

Can't have Mexican food or a burrito without an accompanying ice cold Corona!! Lovely. And the meal wouldn't be complete without Cholula hot sauce either.  I was so pleased the first time I found Cholula in the UK!  It's EVERYWHERE back in L.A.!  They do say that its the little things in life that make all the difference!
In this last picture I added some digital red love hearts to the picture of Cholula and Corona!  Fun!
Thanks for stopping by to have a look and if you ever get the craving for good Mexican food, I recommend you try The Mission Burrito in Reading!
