Inspiration from a catalog!

There was a "Shh Reading!" Door Hanger in one of the many catalogs that arrive in my mailbox. I saw it and thought it would be perfect for the door of my daughter's room since she's an avid reader. I asked her to choose a favorite quote about reading and this is what she gave me.
“The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It is cheap, it consoles, it distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world and experience of a wide kind. It is a moral illumination.”
Elizabeth Hardwick

I happened to have some blank wooden doorhangers in the house, so I covered one with Romani/Gypsy Basic Grey patterned paper. I diecut a book, the caption, and then stamped Michelle's Big Scroll to add a bit more interest to the piece.

I'm working on a "Shh! I'm writing" with one of her favorite quotes on writing that I'll attach to the back of the doorhanger to make it reversible. I'll be sure to post that when I complete the project.

Oh. I also wanted to mention that I was delighted that my "Fall" card (seen below) was chosen for the "Leaves" sampler at Wednesday Stamper.

Thanks for visiting today!
