Default Surprise Me! - "Quote me!"

I love quotes and sayings! Many times they say exactly what I feel, but have trouble articulating. I cut quotes out of the newspaper; I write them down when I see them in magazines or hear them somewhere; and I often include quotes, phrases, or sayings in my own scrapbook layouts.

My challenge to you this month is to create a layout, using a quote as the ONLY journaling to express the thoughts or emotions behind your layout.

You may use any quote of your liking OR you are free to wander through my store and find a quote that you like in any of my word art kits. Simply PM me, tell me what quote you want, what word art kit it is included in, and provide an email address. Either I or my assistant, Diane, will email to you the one quote of your choice.

Please post your layout HERE in the Surprise Me! Challenge Gallery by the last day of the month. Then come back and post your layout here in this thread so we can see, with a quick glance, the amazing work you have done!

What do you earn by participating? Well, theStudio offers a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases for the following month. So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted (AND post a link here in this forum), you will receive 10% off of every purchase made next month! No coupons are required. The discount will automatically be applied to your purchase. How easy is that? And YES, this is on top of any sales prices too.

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

This is perfect for a LO I am planning to do. I know just the quote I am going to use, and just the kit too.
Thanks for the incentive to get this page done.

Didn't have a hard time in finding a wordart that I love.



I painted this oil painting for my parents' 40th anniversary in 1977. When mom moved into assisted living and we sold her home, it came back into my posssion. It is my favorite of all the seascapes that I painted.

Janelle, What a perfect quote for your LO! Darling photo too! Sandie, you were so right. That quote (word art from Until They All Come Home) is just perfect with these photos! Thank you so much for using it. Anyone else?

Thanks for joining us, Karen! This is lovely! I love the coloration you gave this word art (from Outside my Window). It really gives it a different feel, and it's lovely!
