Good morning crafty friends,

Today’s post is for the wonderful Quick Quotes Company blog hop. If you happened upon this post, please feel free to head over to the Quick Quotes blog and start from there.

Here is my project for today.

This is a view of the entire layout. I used the wonderful Quick Quotes designer paper, a beautiful Quick Quotes vellum quote and some cardstock and some svg type cutting files from PaperCraftingWorld.com.
