A bit of the 50s....American style.

DD1 loves 50s style......she has quite a few 50s style dresses.......so she was delighted when we found a 50s style diner [ Lori's Diner] near our hotel in San Francisco.....it was full of fascinating memorabilia and looked pretty cool to us tourists!! We'd highly recommend it.
The food was reasonably priced for San Francisco.....which we found quite expensive for eating out generally......and was very good.....with fast and friendly service.....we loved it. In fact we became a bit addicted to pancakes for breakfast during our vacation......something we never normally have. 
I dug out some retro style papers and embellishments......and feel that they compliment the photos pretty well.

We have a similarly styled diner near where I work called "Ruby's Diner". I don't get there often but really enjoy it when I do. I took Melissa there when she visited this area last year!

Is that a car INSIDE? Wow ... Love the retro 50s feel; my DD hunted for places like these when she was in the States. Those little dotted and checked bits and pieces in red and white/cream are just the ticket, aren't they :).

Your papers definitely compliment the photos & theme of your layout - looks like a great diner!!

Your papers were perfect for the layout---especially the checked that mimic the floor exactly. I'm glad you liked the diner experience. They are still popular around these parts too.

The papers do suit the style Jacky, and it is lovely to see your holiday photos. We loved San Francisco when we went and it is one of my top places to go back to. Pancakes are a family tradition here for breakfast when my granddaughters stay, it started when I used to let them help cook them when they were small.

You had just the right products for this page; perfect! We found a similar place in San Fran nearly 20 years ago when we spent a week there with our kids. Went there every morning!

Fabulous! There's a girl here would love this too. I'll have to tell her about the dresses

Me and my girl love 50s style dresses too. What a great looking place to visit. Perfect little embellishments for the page.

I want to go back now even more than ever! Loved that diner and love the pages you have made.
