Here Today with Donna!

Hi Everyone! Donna here today to host the blog and show you a layout using the new Quick Quotes line "Beautiful Life".

I had this photo just waiting for the right papers, and when I saw this, I knew the red in the photo would just pop out with these yellow papers. To make it masculine I used lots of metal embellishments and fibers to give it what I call a "mechanical shabby" look. The "faux" chicken wire I cut from Cricut. And of course a really beautiful quote I found in the Quick Quotes Bundles Travel pack.

I made these awesome flowers and they were so easy. The dark gray circle I used white rope. To get it the dark gray color I ran it across the Quick Quotes Powderpuff Midnight Confessions. The burlap flower I cut strips of burlap and twisted them.

For both flowers I cut out a circle from a sturdy piece of cardstock, put tacky glue on the circles and starting in the center just went around in a circle until it was filled. Lot of glue was the secret here.

The leaves were made from packing material, pretty cool, huh? I have a large stash of charms, doodads, watch part, you name it which embellished the page with.
