Quick Quotes Gypsy Road "The World is My Oyster" layout

Hello Quick Quotes Readers!  Alicia with you today sharing a layout featuring the gem of the City of Cincinnati.  You may recognize this landmark, if you are old enough, from the opening credits of the television show WKRP in Cincinnati.  The actual sculpture is called the Genius of Water and the fountain is named in commemoration of Tyler Davidson, a local business man from the nineteenth century.  I took this photo a couple of years ago on a shoot with a photography club.  I thought it was good enough to blow up to a 5x7!

The banners at the top were precut from a Quick Quote kit and I used my Cricut Explore to cut the title from Gypsy Road 300 paper.  I also used a other die cuts and templates on various scraps of paper.

I fussy cut some stamps from the Gypsy Road 100 paper and mixed them with actual foreign stamps that I have in my stash.
