October Quote Challenge by Tish

Reader Tish submitted this layout for the October Quote Challenge. She said:


I'd like to submit my page for the October Quote Challenge. This is a page showing a picture of my son and his girlfriend taken after a recent music recital they performed together. I've had this music patterned paper, as well as the punch out letters I used for the title, in my stash forever! Whew, I was glad to finally use some of them up! The music notes were made with a Cuttlebug die cut. I knewwith having a musician in the family, I'd always find a use for them! The quote, which was also a punch out that's been waiting in my supplies for ages, says "Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition." (Alexander Smith).

Thank you, Scrap Our Stash, for encouraging me to look through my quotes supplies, as I usually forget to check them to see if I have anything appropriate for my page. Without your challenge, I probably would not have used the quote on this page, and I think it was the perfect touch!

I've been lurking at your challenge site for a while now, following along but not submitting anything. I finally got the courage to send you a page! Ha ha! But, I've been enjoying the challenges and seeing everyone's pages. THANK YOU FOR ENCOURAGING US TO USE OUR STASH! I know I seriouslyappreciate it! :)
