Quick Quotes Blog Hop Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the QQ Design Team Blog Hop.


I created 2 projects for today.  The first project is a card where I combined the Cherry Truffle papers & French Quarter papers to create a friendship card.  


My second project for today started off as a packaged layout kit from Quick Quotes - 'Simple Joys'.  I put my own spin on it and here is my finished project.  The layout had many more flowers but since I was tailoring it to be a boys page, I removed some of the flowers and I added some hardware embellishments like the brads & photo anchors.  I used an acrylic stamp to add the word 'months.'  All of the distressing was done with the QQ powderpuff chalking inks (a must-have scrapping supply).


 I created my tag to be an interactive piece.  This way I could journal about Ethan's milestones at 8 months old.  I am creating his 1 year album and am trying to keep up the best I can.  The rest of his album can be found in the tab at the top called 'Ethan's 1st Year Album'.
Thanks for stopping by. =)

  9. Very nice layout and I commend you on getting this done while he is still a child. As much as you think you will never forget what is going on now, over time you will find you will need some reminders.
