Home Sweet Home

I put together a layout that features the homes that we have lived in. I really love the way this turned out, and I have to thank my husband for the idea to create page!


I used Love, Elsie papers and embellishments. Under each photo, I listed the address of the home. It seems like an awful lot of information to post on my blog, so I edited the photo of the layout, and I painted over the addresses. I just want you to know that under the red blotches, there is journaling! I love the Love, Elsie chipboard buttons. I sewed a couple on the layout, and I also sewed one on top of the layered Prima flower stack. You can click on the photo to see the layout larger.

Well, I have some running around to do, and then I have to cut the grass. It's my least favorite thing to do, and it takes me so long to get it done! Oh well! At least it's much cooler outside. I hope you had a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
