Living a Dream with Marcia

Hello Quick Quotes friends. Marcia here to host the blog today. I have a fabulous layout to share with you using the new Back to Basics collection. This collection is so versatile you could use it for almost anything. I am also using some chipboard pieces from older Club Q kits as well as some other goodies from my stash.

I am scrapping my son's girlfriend, who interned this summer in Missouri at the World Bird Sanctuary. She learned how to care for raptures and did some educational outreach, teaching others about these fabulous birds. I love these photos, they really convey her confidence and love for what she does. That smile says, "yeah, I got this!"


Here are some close ups. Designers Note: The circles were stamped with Java Powderpuff Chalk ink using things like the cap to my glue bottle and a sponge dauber turned upside down.


I used a vellum quote from the Babies/ Kids/ Family Itty Bitty Vellum Quotes Box Set and mounted it on the same paper I used for my background. The quote was perfect. She's not my kid, but kudos to her Mom and Dad for letting her go hundreds of miles away and supporting her while she was there. (She was not paid for her internship or provided meals)


I used this fabulous sketch by Karan Gerber for Sketchabilites
