Thanks for the prompts. I've used them in I think 7 of my pages so far, not always from the same list, just whatever works better for me that day. I know I said I didn't like quotes, and would probably not use them, but I'm finding them good inspiration on the days when I don't have a quote of my own that I can "gelli print" about. LOL
