Art Nouveau peacock layout with Quick Quotes paper

Today I decided to use my Art Nouveau cart for the first time.  Right away when I saw the peacock I knew it would be perfect for  the colors of the Julie Je t'aime paper.  I love this paper and its water color look in blues and purples with touches of yellow.  Anyway this layout went together so easily and I am thrilled the way it came out. Don't you love when that happens?
 The colors are even more magnificent than I thought they would be.  
This picture is of my oldest daughter, granddaughter and me of course.
