Friend Quote Book

These photos are from a little quote book I made for one of my friends at Christmas. Without telling her whole story, she was going through some trying okay. I felt she needed something to lift her spirits. So, I created this for her.

The 9 quotes are from various internet and quote book sources I have. After formatting and printing, I added backgrounds and used a few embelishments for fun. I used cereal boxes cut them 3 x 6 for the base then used my Xyron to adhere the DP to the cardboard...rounded the corners and sanded for that distressed look. Hope this inspires you to start thinking about will be here before you know it!!

If you would like me to send you the formatted quotes, just let me know.....I will need your e-mail address so be sure to put that into the note. Stamps - Hero Arts, SU Wild About You, SU Tagger's Dozen, SU Just Love You
