Challenge # 160 - "Quote It"

Kathleen here! Quotation marks are something that always seems to be left on my old Thicker sheets, soooo for this challenge you need to...

- use up some of your quotation marks by making a quote into a title (or part of one),
- use at least 4 journal spots/cards (doesn't have to be the whole thing wink.gif ) AND
- I want to see you "quote" a scrapper you admire by lifting a page of theirs (seek permission of course!!)

Here's mine...I've lifted a page by Stacey Michaud...

Janet M : I choose to scraplift my good friend Jules and the cute layout she did of her new twin grandson's - I had taken a similar picture at Christmas a couple of years ago. These are my three youngest grandson's . Here's is the layout. Jules did. http://http//,37387936,cid,,2,,137282

Here's mine:

Debbi T: I guess I'm the cheater in the crowd. I couldn't decide on who to scraplift--I went back and forth and back and forth and was taking too long and decided I wouldn't have time to get their permission, since I was working on this the day before it was due, so I decided to go with a sketch from one of my favorite sketch sites, Pencil Lines (Sketch 217), which is sort of like scraplifting, right? I did manage to meet the other criteria, though! Thanks for the fun challenge, Kat!

Anna-Karin: This was so much fun Kat! I think it is the first time that I touch my Thickers quotation marks. I used a quote that I really like, ‘Adopt the pace of nature, her secret is patience’. The journaling spots were stamped and I didn’t lift another layout as such, but used a bunch of the techniques Tim Holtz showed in his 12 tags of Christmas. For the tree panel, I first stamped the embossing folder and then embossed the trees, transferring the stamped image to the paper looking like it is behind the trees. A piece of acetate was dry embossed and placed on top of the title letters, to give the impression of ice. The blue bird was made by adding pieces of tissue tape to grungepaper, after which it was die cut and coloured with alcohol inks. I stamped a frame around the page, first swirls and snowflakes with blue ink and then many snowflakes which were embossed with white glittery powder.
