Quote - challenge
I'm joining in the challenge over on the Gingersnap Creations blog which is all about quotes this week.
A year ago this time in May, DH and I were in Miami for our wedding Anniversary and I got to go to Michael's! I couldn't enjoy it totally because I was so overwhelmed and excited to see everything that was available that I couldn't concentrate. I had to take it all in, in small doses. Well, my eye fell on a 12x12 K&Co Vintage paper pad and I knew that would give me so much enjoyment that I purchased it, not thinking of the weight in the suitcase whatsoever! Now one year later, all I have left are little scraps and the cover. So as not to waste anything I have punched out squares of the cover to make this little arch tag. At the same time it is a memory for me of the great time I had this year using that beautiful paper, every page being represented here in a small square!
I used a little quote from Darkroom doors although I don't know who was famous for it.
Next up is a vintage card which I put together in the collage fashion, just using up some scraps.
We have beautiful sunny weather today, hope it lasts! Here I am going to share a couple of grids I made of photos taken outside these last days.
If you click on the photo it is in a larger format.
Thanks for popping by today!
Oh yes, I have to tell you this, I found a Bible today from 5th of August, 1745!! The date was written inside, who it was from etc... Our eldest son was born on the 5th of August, thought that was quite something!
