Double Inspiration: Marcia and Wendy!


Wednesday Greetings to you!  Today we have twice the inspiration for you with Marcia and Wendy hosting the blog.  Grab your favorite beverage and enjoy!

*****

Hello Quick Quotes friends, Marcia here with some layout inspiration for you today and a confession.

I have a love besides scrapbooking - (gasp!). It's flowers. I have flower beds all around my yard. There is something blooming at all times from May - October (or when it freezes here in Minnesota). My lilacs are one my favorites in the Spring. I love their scent.

The Dusty Roads papers are the perfect colors for showcasing my beautiful lilacs, don't you agree?


and some close-ups ....

The bird chipboard piece is from the March Club Q kit. I played up the hexagon shapes with some punched out pieces, using a butterfly stamp on a few.
