Happy Travels with Quick Quotes

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today with my last post for October. Using the challenge theme of Memorabilia I decided to use a couple things from my trip to Ft. Lauderdale in September.  

I took Amtrak from home to Ft Lauderdale rather than making the four hour drive. I love taking the train as there is wifi, snacks, beverages and comfort. Not having to make stops along the way really makes it nice. SO, when I started working on this project I used my Canon Selphy to print the photos in 4" x 6" size. I really love this little machine, as it has a cartridge with the ink cartridge which is exactly enough ink for however many pieces of photo paper came with the pack. 

I love being able to send directly from my phone using the Canon print app. Once the photos is sent, the machine's screen says busy and it starts, it brings the paper from the carrier and first prints yellow.

It then sucks it back in and prints the red, then one more pass with the blue and the photo is complete. 

So, once my images were printed, I decided which paper I was going to use. My final decision was the front and back of Mulberry 103. I took two sheets of this paper and used one for my base and one to cut for mats for my photos.

While on this trip I took a day for myself and rode the Tri-Rail to Miami to spend the day with my Quick Quotes Team Mate Martha. We had a great afternoon/evening, and then I took the Tri-Rail back to Fort Lauderdale. That ticket is stuck in my coffee wrap. And I used the lower left photo as a pocket to hold my train ticket. 

I hope you have enjoyed my project today. Thank you for stopping by.
