Just Because with Barb!

Happy Saturday everyone!

It's Barb and I am back with a layout I created using the Quick Quotes Just Because line. This line is amazing! I have used it for several different themes because the patterns and colors work well for so many things!


I just found this photo of my daughter from her graduation in 2008. I was pretty excited when I realized how perfectly the colors from the Just Because line went with the photo! The best part about this layout? I used the scraps of paper left over from another layout! Don't you love it when you can use up some scraps?! I distressed the edges of some of the papers and inked the rest of the edges with PowderPuff Chalking ink in Mocha Mama.


The chipboard flowers and circles are from the Quick Quotes Bag 'O Chips - Stackable Flowers. I colored each flower and circle with PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Mango Mai Tai and Blue Hawaiian. I then inked the edges in Mocha Mama. The title was cut from a sheet of Just Because that has a variety of titles/journal tags to choose from.


It was easy making the banner from scraps I had left over. I loved the way the brown and green looked together and I thought the pink butterfly gave it just the right pop of color!

Enjoy your weekend and take some time to get creative!
