Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace - Club Q inspiration

Hello Quick Quotes friends!  I am here today with some Club Q inspiration. I love playing with the Club Q kits. The March kit is full of gorgeous papers from the Dusty Roads collection., chipboard pieces, and die cuts. I was inspired to create this 2 page layout of one my Girl Scout troops visiting the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace in Savannah, Georgia. Juliette Gordon Low is the founder of Girl Scouts. Yes, I was a fearless Girl Scout leader for 12 years! and not just for one troop but both of my daughter's troops! Boy, did we have some fun times!! We attended a special interest session at the Birthplace where the girls learned about bygone fashions, tried on corsets and hoop skirts (which they absolutely loved doing), and learned to be proper ladies. I am sure glad fashions have changed, because it's not easy (or comfortable) to sit while wearing a corset and hoop skirt!
Alright enough talk, here is my layout ...
This was my first time using the Kiwi Lane templates. I used the Cascade Trails wavy templates to cut papers that help to emphasize my photos in the corners. The big butterfly is from the Nature templates. Isn't he fun!

I used the charcoal powderpuff chalk ink to stamp some bricks onto the paper to add some interest in the corners. You can also use your inks to give your flowers some color, like I did here.
Here you can see how I used the templates up close. Oh ya, my daughter, She's the unladylike one! lol.
