…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!

…up way too late…

Here’s my entry for Gauche Alchemy’s April mood board, full of color!  My kind of moodboard!  I’m also entering this for Sketches in Thyme Sketch #147

The down pointing arrow on the top left is a transparency, it’s actually deep purple and says “WONDERFUL.”  And I flipped the sketch over.  Took me awhile to decide that, let me tell ya!  More pics soon!

Happy scrapping!
