Lasting Memories Challenge- Hot drink with stencils

This week at Lasting Memories the challenge is to "Grab a hot drink and dig out those stencils!"  Use your stencils on your layout and showcasing a hot drink. 
 Now for me I have never been a coffee drinker.  I love the smell of hot coffee but just never aquired the taste.  However after my eldest daughter bought me a Hot Chai Tea on a cold day I was hooked.  
I even named my two Ragdoll cats Chai Latte and Mocha Latte.  
I love Chai hot and cold.  So every morning my sweet hubby makes me a Hot Chai  to take with me when I go over to tend to two of my grandkids at 6:30 in the morning.  
When I get Kenzie and Micah can't wait until my drink cools off so they can each have a 
sip.  So of course Grammy always has to be careful to leave a little for them.  
For my layout I used the word Chai Tea from a Word Art I found on Silhouette America.  I picked the two word I needed out, enlarged and deleted all the rest. I also hand dot lined the edges to help them pop.  The cute cup was also from Silhouette America.  Then for my stencil I cut out the steam piece and used it as my stencil.  I placed  the square around my cut out on the page and added Pearl Pen to make  it look like the steam.  It looks much more realistic then the white cutout did.  

Please check out all the amazing projects all the Design Team has created for you at Lasting Memories.  Then join us for the Sunday challenges.  You have all month to create a layout for each of the challenges.  We would love to see your creations.  Happy craftin!
