So one of my absolute favorite quotes come from Robert Frost's poem "The Road Not Taken".  I can't even express how much this poem speaks to me.  My favorite quote is:

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
As I was deciding how to incorporate this quote into my project, I realized that I just had to include the ENTIRE poem into my layout.    And then I decided to frame the entire layout so that I can hang this in my hallway.

Here's my project:

I just loved the way it turned out!  I already have it in a frame and just need to find the right spot on the wall.

I used our new Florentine Paper pack and a stamp set called Family Love (D1506) to stamp the border around the entire layout.  I then used our exclusive Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut the background image found on p. 66, E6, shift, font layer < Flower2 >.  I used the "Fit to Page" button so the image cut at 11".  I also cut the trees found on p. 53, D3, shift, layer < Tree3 > at 4", 5", and 6".
