Club Q Potluck with Rhonda

"Sometimes friendships last a lifetime... because just being together is enough."


Happy Monday Quick Quotes fans!  Rhonda here today to host the blog.

I have a fun project to share with you today that I will call Club Q Potluck!  It has pieces from various Club Q kits.  The purple scallop border die cut is from the April Club Q kit.

Notice that my photos here are not perfect?  (No, your eyes are not seeing things!)  My husband and I found a photo booth one evening during date night.  I was so bummed to see that after they printed out, the quality of the photos were streaked.  In the end, it doesn't matter, because what did matter to me was the story that was in the pictures.  : )

It's just us, having fun and being our very imperfect selves! 

I added the bling from our December Club Q which is from Want2Scrap.  Isn't it pretty?  I cut it apart and made it work into the design.

Here I used the Butterflies - Bag 'O Chips chipboard butterfly, pressure embossed it and then inked with Purple Passion PowderPuff Chalk Ink, then coated it with a layer of glossy accents.  You could also use embossing ink and some UTEE for a similar effect.  I then added a die cut butterfly on top to give a little more dimension and texture.

The negative relief cardstock sentiments were from a Club Q kit as well.  They were ivory and I used Baja Blue, Very Berry and Biscotti to color them.
