I began this blog to document my POTD (picture of the day) for our Project Life album in 2010. In Sept. 2011 I had our first baby and I plan for her to have the most documented life possible. I have continued each year with Project Life, but also have expanded my blog to include layouts, card creations, and even cooking recipes. My little word to focus on for 2014 is "family" and I plan to make them my priority. I would love to have you join me on our journey! Thank you for visiting!

Welcome Home - New Layout LOAD #21
Happy Sunday! After church, lunch, and shopping for new clothes for Maddie; I finally have a second to post the layout I finished last night (yes, it's nap time...LOL). This is a layout of Maddie the first time we entered our NEW house in May of 2012. She looked so small in our big living room and I was instantly struck by future visions of her running and playing in our new home. This layout is to document that moment. It is LOAD (Lay Out A Day) #21 over at Let's Scrap.
For this layout I played along with the sketch from the January C'est Magnifique sketch. The sketch instantly reminded me of a homey, warmth feel and I that was just what I wanted my page to be.
I also played along with Scrap Africa Challenge #25, use at least one recycled item. I am a sucker for all the fabulous packaging that is accompanying the wonderful trinkets of scrapbooking! I used the cardboard packaging from a Bo Bunny layered chipboard and misted/inked it to be the background behind my keys. I also used both the jute and the tag from a washi tape I had. I flipped the "paper tape" tag inside out, misted it, drug paper towels across the ink and used it for my key tag at the top.
A similar challenge over at LESSology - challenge 32 was to upcycle at least one item and incorporate a key. I have had these keys forever and was waiting for just the right page to use them. What could be more perfect than a layout of a new HOME?
