Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge - Quotes

Hi all,

had a proper Sunday today, went for a walk, cooked a roast and then made cold chicken and stuffing sandwiches and flapjacks for tea in front of the telly. First one in years! The reason? DD#1 phoned this morning to say GD was poorly and they had been up most of the night and her chap had now gone to work, so could GD come for a walk with us to give her a bit of a break.

So we went for our walk and played in the park and then I thought why not have GD for the day? On hearing I was cooking a roast DD#1 decided she would come too :0) They have gone home now so I am back in my craft room waiting for Sir Alan Sugar to tell me who is Apprentice is! I think it should be Tom or Helen, bet this means nothing to you if you're not in the UK, hahahah!!

Back to the task in hand, my layout, it is an old photo of my best friend Sue. She is going to be 50 (yikes!) in February and has asked me to scrap her life as a present. So you will see a lot of her over the next few months :0)

This photo was taken when she was 2 and I adore it, check out her doll's pram, if only they had kept it :0) The challenge was to include a quote and as I chose vintage, elegant papers I wanted something a bit quirky so I went for ......Dr Seuss!!

'Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.' Love it!

Papers and pin wheel are Anna Griffin 'Willow' Ribbon is American Crafts and stamp is a random one I found in my folder!

Thanks so much for looking
