Frosted Finds!

How fun is it when you see a challenge that really makes you dig through your stash and you find lots of treasures you forgot you had??!!

Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday challenge was to use a quote on your project. I have been seriously neglecting a whole drawer full of vellum quotes that I have "collected" over the years. Tons of different subjects to choose from, too! I am leaving these on my desk so I remember to actually use them! I don't know if I'm excited that I found this "hidden" stash or mad at myself for not remembering that I had them all....

So this quote came from a little booklet of vellum pieces from Joann's Scrap Essentials. It's from Hans Christian case you can't read it...

"Just living is not enough...One must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower."

Since there are PLENTY of flowers on this page, I thought it worked perfectly. :)

This sketch is from Let's Capture These Sketches. Love all the different circles! I used some doilies that I inked and misted. The centers of the doilies are cut circles from random pieces of scrap paper. All of the flowers came from the Big Drawer of Flowers. I still can't believe how many I use and the drawer is still stuffed! Apparently, I need to use more....not a problem!! I still have most of my Spring pictures to work with! :)
Bright and early Sunday morning, 2 loads of laundry done, grocery shopping done, and a layout finished! Now I can play in the pool...guilt free!!

Have a great Sunday!!!
