La Scopa

Layout done with the Games kit released in March 2003 by Club Scrap. The epoxy stickers are Rebecca Sower Nostalgique. Small alpha stickers are from Sticko Bookworks. Large letters from lildavisdesigns - I altered them by painting with antique white acrylic paint, then stamping on them and finally covering them with a faux tile finish.

May 1996: Our favorite restaurant then was the Mistral. We were there almost every other day. The food was easily one of the best Italian fare in Hong Kong. And often the restaurant invited chefs from overseas to come and do a 'promotional' period where they presented new menus and it was just another excuse for us to go eat there!

One such promotion was done by Gualtiero Marchesi, a famous chef from Italy. Not only did we eat superb fare for a week, Joe even sat down every evening for a hand of Scopa, a strange Italian card game that I still cannot fathom!

And since it is Monday, here are two office videos to reflect my mood. Can you tell that the week did not start exactly as I wanted it to? ;-) Hope yours is better!!
