Finishing Those Layouts

If you are anything like me, you have a small stack of layouts somewhere that you haven’t quite finished -you need to add journaling, or a title or something and you are just not sure what!  This is one of those layouts:




 I knew I wanted to include one of my favorite quotes by Albert Camus:  Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.  I just wasn’t sure how  so I put the layout aside and actually kind of forgot about it.  When I found this stamp from Stampendous! I was ready to go.



 To be honest, I was a little concerned because the blue cardstock I was going to stamp on was very textured and I wasn’t sure how well it would transfer. I prepared the surface with The Perfect Crafting Pouch and stamped with brown ink then heat embossed.  The result – a perfect image:



 Here is the finished layout.  Although you may think the title is “almost 4” I know every time I see this layout that the real title is “My Fall Flower.”

I think it is very pretty, and I like the crazy numbers. I also like the "2 Cute" with the button. It just needed that one stamp to fill the spot. How neat that you found your favorite quote.
