Beautiful em all! In our family the most used quote is "sharing is caring" and it applies to all areas of our lives...the kids learning to share their things, for us adults to remember to be kind and giving to each other and also emotionally, to share our feelings and hearts with each other.

Lee-Anne said...

Great pages, Carla! I just LOVE your work! And I love that you used up some old pics! Sometimes those can be forgotten :)

My fave love quote is from Dr. Seuss, "You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."

Jeanne said...

Great blog... and love the pages!!
My favorite quote comes from the Bible:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails...." 1 Corinthians 13

My fave quote is a simple one: Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much

Great work.

Lizzy Simpson said...

Great layouts Carla! I especially love the third one
One of my favourite quotes is from the Bible: “Love is patient; love is kind and envies no one. Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude; never selfish, not quick to take offense. There is nothing love cannot face; there is no limit to its faith, its hope, and endurance. In a word, there are three things that last forever: faith, hope, and love; but the greatest of them all is love.”

It's a fitting quote for the season of love!


Tanya said...

Great layouts, Carla!!!

Here's my quote: “Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it meaning.”

Anneliese said...

1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud.

What beautiful los! I "love" that paper!

Helen said...

I like this quote:
The greatest thing you'll ever learn
