So Sweet You Are...

Hello Everyone! The weather where I live has been pretty amazing... 80s-90s and it has me thinking about summer! So, I got out some of my favorite Quick Quotes products and created a fun summer layout!  But before I share it with you, I have a confession.... I am terrible at journaling! There! I said it! I never know what to say and I don't like the look of my own handwriting so I often avoid it. However, this is the very reason why I love the Quick Quotes Colored Vellum Quotes. They are not only beautiful, but they say all the things I wish I could think of on my own! Here is a layout I created using the new Summer Samba line. I LOVE this line! It is so bright and colorful... perfect for my summer photos! 


This picture was taken at the beach last summer and I wanted to use it in a layout as soon as I had it printed but instead, held onto it until I could figure out exactly what I wanted to do with it. And once these papers arrived at my house, I had a plan!


When I took this photo, I positioned my daughter off to the side on purpose, just so I could get creative with the journaling. Thank goodness Quick Quotes came to the rescue with this darling vellum quote! It said exactly what I was thinking! I printed this photo off as a 5x7 and laid the quote directly on the photo. I used brads to anchor it down!


I also had to show the gorgeous butterfly from the Quick Quotes Bag O'Chips Butterflies. I adore these! They are so easy to work with! I painted the butterfly white before I debossed it using my Cuttlebug. I then added Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Lemonade! Beautiful!

Thanks for stopping by today! I will be back tomorrow with another Quick Quotes layout!  :)

I am so with you and journaling. I tend to slip mine behind something or on the back of the layout...lol
