Quick Quotes Garden Journal!

 Welcome to another Quick Quotes post using the Club Q Kit! I'm Lovin this kit!!! So Many possibilities and I STILL have lots of papers and goodies left to do MORE, can you believe it! So worth it!

Well it was my Neighbors Birthday Monday and she is a Dear Friend and has helped me so much with my Garden since we moved out here. See I'm originally from California and even tho I love to garden it's different weather here in Kentucky than Calif. (and her Wonderful Hubby has a tractor and turns my garden every year for me, makes it SO MUCH easier then using a rototiller, lol)  Well I noticed she had a little old notebook that she's had forever and it has seen better days (even tho it has a wealth of info in there and I'm sure she won't get rid of it, lol) I thought it was time for a new one! And I love these colors, so bight and cheery, what better way to use them then for a Garden Journal!
 I even added some pockets on the inside for seed packets so she can jot down pertinent info as she plants (and she does, I've seen that old journal lol) Great folded flowers from the Club Q Kit with added leaf punch from EK Success and some of my ribbon from my stash. I've even made a Cute flower pen that I'm sure none of the guys will touch so she'll always be able to find it, LOL!!!
Here is the card I made using the pinwheel flower, I added a Martha Stewart leaf punch for the stamens on the flower (even tho the stamens would be where the pearl brad is in real flowers I still like the concept, lol) added a bit of Ric Rac and added the stamp from Scrappy Moms stamps and a touch of Bling.
Here is a close up of the vintage image from Magic Moonlight Studio. They have Great free images you can use in your art. Added the folded flower and I made the tissue paper flower along with the rolled flower (made with extra paper from the Club Q Kit) and added the EK Success leaf punch. The binding is punched with a Martha Stewart punch (one of my FAVS) and of course some bling! Here's a close up of the Flower Pen I made, the center is a metal button I had and was perfect to fit in the end of the pen opening which I glued on with Beacon 3 in 1 Glue.    
The Garden Journal tag is computer generated on my printer and the charms and beads I added from my stash. Added a doily and of course some Bling. Ribbon is from the Club Q kit also. (See lots of extra goodies!) 
Here is a close up of the card, pretty simple and I'm lovin these pinwheel flowers. Card Base is from the Club Q Kit (see more stuff, lol) and the stamp is from Scrappy Moms Stamps, a touch of bling and everything is inked with the Powder Puffs Chalk Ink in Amaretto. I LOVE these inks, so yummy and they dry super "Quick", lol get it, Quick Quotes, dries Quick, (oh I'm so corny, lol) but it does dry super Quick, so no more ink all over you hands!!!
Well she loved the Journal and now I need to make my Daughter one, Her Birthday is Monday but since she doesn't garden I think it will have to be a Thoughts Journal or maybe an idea journal or just for notes or......... well you get the picture, a Journal can be anything you want it to be, I have a few around because I always get ideas and have to write them down or I forget, lol, I think the the age thing setting in, lol!!!
Well have a great weekend and see you all Monday for the BBTB2 challenge. I'm off to finish up my project, hope to see you all there!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,
