If you are interested in getting the Artiste Cartridge you won't want to miss out on this REALLY GOOD DEAL!!!

I created a mini quote book using the Artiste Cartrige and a ROYGBP color scheme.  Every family has their own special words and quotes.  It is what makes us unique.  Please indulge me some of your time as I share the stories behind the quotes!

My son said this all the time.  "Christopher, have some broccoli"  "I can't not want that Mommy"
Christopher is an eternal optimist.  Inevitably his optimistic view starts out with an "at least"  As in, "At least I only have 2 book reports due tomorrow"
When I was three, I had a dog  named Blue.   Poor dog got blamed for a lot of my shenanigans...
My brother misunderstood the words of the the Christmas carol "The First Noel".   

The first O Well the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepards in fields as they lay:
In fields where they lay a keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
 (The next part is to be sung at the TOP OF YOUR LUNGS!)
 O-well, O-well, O-well, O-WELL
 Born is the King of Israel. 
My daughter went through a phase when she doubled everything she said ( appropriate for a double stamp set, right?)
Last but not least, my son could not pronounce the /th/ sound when he was younger.  So his "there it is"  sounded like "der it is".  We still say it his way today.
Thank so much to reading my silly stories. If you make your own book of family quotes, please share it with me.

Colors used on this project: Cranberry, Sunset,Honey, Topiary, Pacifica and Gypsy.

Now off to Beth Naumann's Blog: Beth's Creative Block to see what she has created!
