Hi Quick Quotes Fans!  


Karan here today to host the blog and ring in the month of August for you!  Today I'm bringing you a layout I created with the Miss Morgan line.

This line, in all its flourishes and femininity, can also be used for masculine layouts! I thought it would be perfect for this photo of hubby and I ( I do believe I have to mention that one of hubby's favorite colours is purple :D)






The word moments came from Miss Morgan 400, I just layered it onto some corrugated cardboard.

I added some strips here from Miss Morgan 300, cardstock and Miss Morgan 200

I cut Miss Morgan 200 into 1" banner strips, punched out some 1 1/4" scallop circles using a punch. The Bag o Bits Birdcage mimics the bird on my journaling, I felt it would be a nice element.  I inked it using Very Berry and Mocha Mama.


At the bottom of Miss Morgan 400- there was a word phrase which I thought was perfect for my journaling, cut these into strips and popped it with foam adhesive.  Maya Road Jonathan chipboard has been my favorite chipboard for titles, and here I used Very Berry Chalk ink to ink the chipboard title.

Products Used:
Maya road Kraft Flags
Bazzil Cardstock.
MFT Die

Happy Scrapping!

Lucky your husband is so pleased with the purple! Mine thought the layout I did of him with his prize lilac bush was too feminine. I'll have to show him your layout to see if he approves because it is absolutely gorgeous!
