…homing in…

…on an old photo.

Sharing this layout from a challenge that I missed, but still very important, and I’m sharing the site anyway.  Lasting Memories had interesting challenges this month since not everyone celebrates Christmas.  Being in a multi-faith home, this really resonated with me.  The first challenge dealt with have a roof over your head, so this is what I scrapped.

“Hello new house”

This isn’t my original background, but it worked out a lot better once I switched it.  Hubby and I moved back to New York after spending some time in Florida, and the muppet was still a baby, so we have this photo of hubby and monkey in front of our new home (with the in-laws).

Lots of stuff from my stash, along with my paint pens, pen work, and spray splash.  The photo mat I cut into strips to mimic steps.  ANd most of my embellishments have to do with love, family, being thankful, and saying hello.

The brackets are from some old alphas that I colored with my Moonlight pens and then black pen.

Happy scrapping!

…eager to share…

…tons of  new goodies coming out from Memory Works.  Spring is coming around here, albeit slowly and shyly.  So I’m going to share what some companies have to give us for the upcoming season, and then some.

Sometimes there are collections that don’t immediately grab my attention, but I give them a second (or third :P) look and discover that I’m liking it more and more.  Fancy Pants has done that.  Bravo/a to Fancy Pants.
