Monday Challenge #3 - Quotes

Good morning ladies! Here we are again...another Monday...another challenge. This week we'll do an easy peasy since a lot of us are getting ready for back to school. Remember that these challenges can be a LO or a card. This week challenge is to use a quote on your LO or card.
We all know that sometimes journaling doesn't come out so easily...what better way to say what you want to say with minimal effort? Quotes are a great way to say or convey the feeling you want to on your LO without the big thinking process of what to write.
I used a quote from Aristotle which was already incorporated in my patterned paper from the June 09 STB. The quote reads: To live happily is an inward power of the Soul. As you can see my journaling is minimal with just my son's name, his age at the time of the picture, and a little sentence to complete the epoxy sticker 4 laughs.
Hope you find some time for yourself and do a little scrapping this week. Don't forget you have until Sunday at 7:00 pm eastern time to link your work here or upload it to our Yahoo Group to be eligible for a yummy fat-free cookie treat.
Now to announce last week challenge winner: Michelle Houghton. She's been with Apron Strings for quite a while, and she's an amazing scrapper. Michelle used a punch for her border and she used a circle punch to make her buttons. Isn't that such a budget friendly idea? You make your own buttons and make them match with your papers. I don't know you, but I'll definitely make buttons with my circle punch more often. Michelle, your cookie jar treat will ship with your September kit. Thank you for playing along.
Happy week,
