If I had to choose a quote that best sums up the non-religious aspect of Easter it would be just as the title of this blog reads: “You’re never too old for chocolate.” That or: “It’s never too early for chocolate!”
I firmly back both statements and have not been shy about using the quotes in various scrapbooks. I’ve incorporated the words in Easter, Christmas and Halloween-themed layouts. Unfortunately, I think I may have worn them out a bit.
This year I will still pepper a few of my Easter layouts with quotes, but not ones that make reference to chocolate. I looked online for inspiration and found some really fabulous quotes on GreatInspirationalQuotes.com and ScrapbookCrazy.com.
