Quotes SMASH

I found these great quotes on Pinterest, so I thought I would SMASH them to help me fill in a few of the remaining pages in my first book. 
close-up left
The left side is a quote from Carl Sagan.  I used a page from a book that was falling apart as the background then layed the quote printed on vellum over top.  A few quick embellishments like Tim Holtz film strip, a button, charm, and some ribbon finish it off.

The right side is a great quote for women of all ages.  I have no idea who it is attributed to, but love it anyway.  It is also printed on vellum and has a piece of scrap white cardstock behind it.  To the left of the page is the profile of a woman's body I hand cut and inked with Tim Holtz distress inks in Vintage Photo and Tea Dye.  I added the lips on the quote from a single stamp from Michael's dollar bin inked in Blazing Red Staz-On and the tiny clover "tattoo" in Cactus Green Staz-On from the retired SU So Happy for You.  A swirl clip and tiny silver brad finish it off. 
Thanks for looking!  April

April, I just these both. I had to read them both to my Hubby as I really think that both quotes are so worth repeating. :O) You know I just love your whole book, and these pages are no different. Hope you are well. Hugs, Lisa
