“Inspirational Quote challenge”
Create a layout that is based on your favorite inspirational quote. Need some ideas? Visit for a great searchable collection of quotes.
Chose at least 2 of the following:

3. Make this a double 12×12 or double 8 1/2 x 11 layout, with at least 2 photos per page.
4. Place your title on a circular or wavy path.
5. Use a transparency of some sort on your page, whether an actual transparency sheet (Hambly Screen Prints, Fancy Pants) or transparent embellishment (Heidi Swapp Ghost Shapes, Making Memories) that you purchased, or a handmade transparency made by hand or with your computer printer.

Deadline to enter Challenge #5 (and all other September challenges) is midnight EST September 30th, 2010.
I chose three of the above to use on this challenge. I decided to use one of my past ideas to make a double layout  using a few more of my 4th of July pictures.
My Cricut was used to make most of the ideas on this fun layout
I used the following supplies :
Independence Day
Summer Vacation
My World
A Child's Year
Digital Images from Karen's Doodles
Copic Markers
E K Success punch for the tree background
Martha Stewart multi cut scissors
All card stock and Liquid Glass  from Close to my Heart
Stickles in  clear and silver to add a little bling.
