The scrapbooking process is a little different for everyone, but when I start with a Quietfire Design quote stamp, I am totally inspired by the quote and go from there.  I looked through my photos and found this one of my friend Jackie with a massive hydrangea bush from 2013 that I thought would do the quote justice.  Next, I selected the beautiful Creative Memories Watercolour Paper Pack and Watercolor Love Embellishments to form the basis of the layout.  The soft colours and patterns are just beautiful.  Although romantic, the papers work for a lot of other photographs too. Lastly, I considered how I might accent the page with some simple floral motifs and used my Sizzix Eclips2 to to cut a fancy tag and flowers for the photo border.   I added some journaling, a bit of stitching and a couple of hearts and voila, another memory preserved.
