Getting to Know the Quick Quotes Design Team Blog Hop!

Hi all my Lovely followers, old and new, welcome and I hope all is well in your part of the world. It's been SOOOOOO HOT and Humid here in Kentucky. I've been staying indoors even tho I have lots to do outside, it's just so hot it takes your breath away when you walk outside. Boy it makes me hot just posting about it, lol!
Well if you just happened to drop in, your in luck because over at The Quick Quotes Blog we are having a "Getting to Know the Quick Quotes Design Team" so WELCOME! If you hopped from my Amazingly Talented and Lovely Design Team Sister, Rhonda's blog, your on the right track, but if you need to start at the beginning click HERE.

Well I did a 2 page layout using one of the July Club Q Kits and you actually have a chance at winning all the Miss Morgan papers (pictured below) and/or the Grand Prize of a Free Private Reserve Getaway ($299 value)! How Exciting is That!
Well on this layout I used the Serenade Cartridge for the Birds and Birdcage. The Birdcage is actually the Journal spot for the layout and if you've been following me for awhile you'll know I like to hide my journaling in fun little spots that serve more then one purpose. And if your new, your in for a treat to figure out where the journal spots are in the future ( I sure hope I inspire you to return again, lol)
I also did a little recycling on this layout also. Can you guess where????
If you guessed the flowers, yep your right! I actually used some old cards I had and fussy cut the flowers and added them to my layout. I popped some to add some dimension since I had about 3 cards to use. I also added some extra stickles to the leaves since the flowers were already glittered with Diamond stickles and also added it on the birdcage along with gunmetal stickles. Everything is from the July Club Q Kit and the extras I used are:
Cricut Cartridge: Serenade 
Cardstock: Colorbok
Bling Swirls: Recollections
Extra Bling: Hobby Lobby and Bead in a Bottle (Tulip)
Dogwood flowers: recycled from old Mother's day cards
Ribbon: Michael's
Punch Around the Page: Martha Stewart (Cherish)

  (Here's a close up of the Journal Birdcage spot)
Now the Exciting part, well at least part of the exciting part, my layout is the most exciting part right, lol, not really, the Candy is the exciting part!!! Well........................

BLOG CANDY for this stop: Miss Morgan Paper Pack (Pictured below) WOW (You could even scrap lift my layout if you wanted too, lol) 
In order to win you just need to do 3 things:
#1 become a follower
#2 leave a comment
#3 check the main QQ blog on Sunday the 24th when all winners will be announced.
How Easy is that!


Now I'm the last stop on the hop but if you need to start the blog hop at the beginning please click here: www.blogquickquotes.com

I sure hope you had fun and got to know me along with all the other Amazingly Talented Design Team Gals over at The Quick Quotes Blog. We have alot of Fun things planned and some great challenges coming up so check back here and on the QQ Blog often. Thanks for stopping by and try and stay cool if your in the heat wave or just enjoy your summer, we'll be seeing you again really soon!

((Hugs)) and Take Care!
Theresa

Nancy said...

Love your layout. I also like that you include a supply list, notated along with stores.

PJ Waldrop said...

I love your work and I like the reused flowers. I try to do this when I can. I will also make extras when I am making my own embellishments so when I make cards they are already done. Usually it is just as easy to do 5-6 as it is to pull all the stuff to do one.
