Friday Challenge 85

It is the first Friday of March and you know what that means...  it is time to reveal the March challenge theme!

Be sure to stop back at the blog soon for the Challenge Winner Announcements for Friday Challenge 84 - " Love"!


Hello, Quick Quotes readers! Louise here to host the March challenge. This month our theme is...

Travel and Adventure!

I created two Travel and Adventure themed projects using the Far and Away collection.

My first example is a travel layout. The story behind this page is that I decided to take a trip just with my oldest son. We missed our flight connection and got on a different plane to a different destination.

Instead of panicking, we got on the Internet and cancelled our reservations, then we wandered around looking for a hotel that met our needs. While I don't plan to repeat this random sort of travel on a regular basis, it provided us with a great experience and bonding opportunity.

  • I used both sides of the Far and Away 105 paper on my page. One side of this paper has strips which I cut apart and placed both vertically and horizontally. 
  • The title (from the Far and Away Quotes and Phrases sheet) is mounted on foam adhesive.  
  • I thought this quote on the vellum strip captured our experience perfectly. It is attached with copper brads. 
  • Across the bottom are a series of elements from the Far and Away 12" x 12" Quotes and Phrases sheet.
  • All edges are inked with PowderPuff Chalk Inks in Tropical Punch or Deep Sea.

If you don't have travel or adventure photos, you can always make a travel themed card. Here is a card I made for my husband for our anniversary.

The background is the Far and Away 104 paper (which reminds me of a suitcase we have) and the sentiments are from the Far and Away 12" x 12" Quotes and Phrases. All edges are inked with PowderPuff Chalk Inks in Tropical Punch or Deep Sea. The diagonal sentiment is raised on foam adhesive to give it emphasis.

I used Quick Quotes Catalina Island papers and ink to match. Pictures from our day spent at Typhoon Lagoon while on vacation at WDW. First time my grandson rode the Gusher. He rode it with his mom that day.
