Stampamemory has a new Challenge this week. They are asking for a famous quote that means a lot to you or perhaps a funny quote from a family member or friend that you’d like to record. I chose quotes that mean a lot to me and because I have two of them I made two layouts. On the first layout I chose the quote “All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt” . This quote is from the Peanuts Cartoon. I used this quote with photos that we took of the children at the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt in 2008. My children really love Easter and all the craft things they get to make, but I think a lot of it has to do with the chocolate. With the layout I used Bella Rose DSP for the background and the words, which I cut out by hand. I then cut out 5 medium eggs and 9 small eggs also by hand, using Candy Land DSP and Holiday Treasure DSP. I made a flower using two scallop circles punched out of Bella Rose DSP and Real Red. I joined them together with a brad and a Chocolate Chip daisy from the flowers I punched using the Spring Bouquet punch.

On the second layout I chose the quote “Our memory of the ocean will linger on, long after our footprints in the sand are gone” . I cant remember where this quote came from, but it one that I think of often when the children are walking along the beach looking for shells. So I used this quote with photos that we took of the children at Brighton Beach in 2008. My children really love when we go there and they can walk along the shoreline. With the layout I used Washington Apple DSP for the background and the words I cut out by hand using Pacific Point ( I really need to get some alphabet dies for my cuttlebug). I then punched some hearts with the heart to heart punch using Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point and Summer Sun cardstock. I also used this card stock as background for the 4 small photos and the large photo. I punched some Pacific Point cardstock using the scallop border punch and the curly label punch as well. I printed my saying out on the printer and used Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun cardstock as backing for the saying with the pacific blue curly label behind that.
