Use quotes for journaling

I have been so busy scrapbooking lately that my blog doesn't get much attention:(
On Friday I had some ladies over at my house and we made a few layouts. We meet once a month and work with Basic Grey's page kits. It's awesome! Everything is precut and marked with numbers. It's foolproof and turns out gorgeous. What else with BG!
Saturday I went to a 10-hour crop. I didn't get a whole lot of scrapping done, but I ate a bunch and watched a few chick flicks;)

Yesterday, I taught scrapbooking to a Spouse Group and today I'm going to a
Close To My Heart club.

Fun stuff every day!

Do you ever feel that you run out of things to say... or write...when you create?
If you do, quotes come in real handy. They can be used for titles or journaling.

The other day I bought this downloadable e-book from

It has hundreds of quotes for every occasion and it only cost $ 9.95 and you get it instantly.
I put mine in a binder with sheet protectors and I will keep adding on new quotes as I find them. Like
my favorite Dr. Suess quotes.Here's a few of my favorite quotes from the book;

"Dogs have owners. Cats have staff."

"A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. A successful woman is one who can find such a man."

" I think men who have a pierced ear are better prepared for marriage.They've experienced pain and bought jewelry"

"My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being, hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint" Erma Bombeck

And then one a bit more serious;

"Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world,but the Marines don't have that problem" Ronald Reagan.

Click here if you wanna download it. If you rather not spend the money, has a huge library with thousands of quotes.

Here's the class I taught yesterday; a Fathers day card with some simple origami. I will post a tutorial on how to do this tomorrow.


Pin It!

i love that marine corps quote, too...another one of my favorites is the eleanor roosevelt one:

"The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!"

There is also a really funny one that says, "All men are created equal and then a few become Marines."
