A Day In The Sun Mini w/ Quick Quotes and a Circle Challenge!

Hi Friends and I sure hope you all have been having some "Fun In The Sun" in your neck of the world, here in KY it's been raining off and on for almost a week now! My garden loves it (but so do the weeds, lol) and I can't complain, it means I have more time to craft, Who doesn't love that!
Well I made a Mini Album using the Quick Quotes June 2011 Kit (KICK46) Love the Savvy Davvy Paper line! I'm also going to enter this in the Monthly Circle Challenge, I haven't entered one in awhile but I really need to and this would be a perfect time since it involves a road trip challenge, actually called "On The Road Again", and this mini is for a trip so how perfect, more then one use, lol! I used the Canvas from the kit and inked it with Tahiti Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalk Inks. I also used Maraschino Cherry, Blue Hawaiian, Mocha Mama and Limeade inks on this mini also.
Now as you can see I made an accordion album and I used my Cricut with the "Pack Your Bags" Cartridge. The majority of the papers in this mini album is from the QQ June Kit and the cuts for the images are QQ papers and DCWV cardstock. (I'll give you a complete supply list at the end of this post.)
Pages 1 & 2
The papers are QQ papers the "Our Trip" is from Pack Your Bags and is cut @ 1 1/2" with the shadow. (All the cuts are cut with the shadows)
Pages 3 & 4
I love how these turned out! I fussy cut around the red flowers for my picture mat and added the red bling to the centers (love it, lol!) The flip flops are from the PYB cart cut @ 2". Also used a Adhesive Quick Quotes Glitter Chipboard Dies.   
Pages 5 & 6
Now this is a pocket page with a tag and a cute little bikini stamp (sorry folks I don't remember where I got it from, Michael's maybe?) all papers are QQ and the images are PYB cut @ 2" and DCWV cardstock. Added a bit of bling some ribbon and another QQ glitter chipboard piece.
Now this is my favorite page (maybe it's the wishful thinking of sitting on the beach with a Pina Colada and watching the waves roll in, lol!) Another image form the PYB cart cut @ 4" with DCWV cardstock, ribbon from Michael's and more QQ chipboard pieces.
Now I made this accordion mini with one of these Kits above and still have Bunches of goodies left over, I could probably make at least two more kits and STILL have stuff left over, you gotta love that! I sure hope you stop by Quick Quotes and do some shopping, try Club Q, You won't be disappointed, Lots of quality products and lots of extras to make more then just what's in the kits. Keep your eyes out, We are going to be having some Major fun over at the Quick Quotes Blog so check back soon, for some Fun over the 4th of July weekend!
Along with the Cricut Circle Challenge, "Again On the Road", that I entered this into I'm also entering this in a challenge over at Frosted Designs. The challenge is to use a Journaling tag on your project. Well all of the Design Team made Mini's and I didn't want to feel left out so I'm entering my mini too, lol, and on one of my pages I used a Journal tag. I lucked out since the QQ paper already had lines on it, so my tag has lines, Woo Hoo!
Well I sure hope your having some "Fun In The Sun" this summer and today is the official 1st day of Summer, and My Oldest Son, Brian's Birthday, he turns 30 today (boy I'm gettin old, lol!) I just want to say Happy Birthday, I Miss Him and Love Him LOTS!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,
Theresa (and Mom to You Brian, I LOVE You!)
