Salt Water Taffy


This was one of the American treats we'd heard of and were keen to try :) We found a 'pick'n'mix' at Newport Beach and picked up a few pieces to try, and were thrilled to find more at Ventura to stock up thoroughly!

I have no idea who the papers are by, unfortunately. They came from a 12x12 pad that doesn't seem to have a name! But I do know that the alphas are Thickers...

I love your patchwork effect here! Taffy sounds lovely - but all the flavours we tasted all sort of tasted the same. Maybe we were just in the wrong shop! A great subject for a page

Great patch working and who would have thought that the alphas were Thickers ;D

Love the patchwork effect on this one. My daughter has that paper! She was given it as a set, with an album and I have a feeling it was Papermania.

You are really rocking that patchwork effect !
I've heard of Salt Water Taffy and the mind boggles as to what it tastes like ...

I love salt water taffy! Personally I think the best kind comes from shops where you can watch it being made on premise, though those shops are getting harder & harder to find.

Great looking layout!

Mel, all of your recent pages are so lovely to see - I really like the one of you and The Doctor as well.
Hope all is well for you :-)

I've never been a fan of salt water taffy, much too sweet for me but always bring home a box for my parents.

What a nice use of paper! It looks like quilting but in a non painful way! LOL!

Cute layout! I like the colors you used. Oh and I love saltwater taffy! The kind you get in Ventura is the best! I live on the East Coast now and can't find the same kind.
