HOME

 It's Friday... and there's a lot going on!
Another Friday with a lot of things to do... and lots of hope for the weekend.  Hope you have plans and good things for the next couple of days.

I want to share a recent layout I made dedicated to my home.

But... what's a home?  Not just a "place" where you live... it's more than that.  So even though I show a photo of my "house", I journaled about all the things that make a house to become home.




I used buttons, felt ribbon, washi tapes, baker's twine, doily, chipboard, ink, and of course... stamps!  I  tried to make the layout a "homey" page... (LOL), so I coordinated different elements but made sure to use diversity... just as what you can find in a real "home"...


I stamped directly on the photo with a phrase from Unity Stamps that says:  "home is where you park your heart", and emphasized the word "heart" with color.


Journaling is in Spanish, but this is the translation:
"In this house we have laughed, cried and received good and bad news.  We've got tired, frustrated and even inspired.  In it we have loved, yelled, and regretted.  Being here we have made plans and in every corner at some point we have talked to God.  We have partied and we have honored family, friendship and love.  With it we have fought, we have fallen, we have dreamed, we have prayed.  Here we sleep, eat, take showers and live.  It's just a house, but it is also a dream come true.  It's really more than that, it's our home."



Here's the whole page.


Hope you like it.

Leave a comment.  I'm going to link this to Friday's Friends with Flair from Unity Stamp Co, so you could win great stuff.

Have a great weekend.

I will be doing something like that...just as soon as we are done getting rid of all the clutter. We moved from a 5 bedroom house into a 3 bedroom and it's been really hard getting rid of things. I love your layout. Thank you for some inspiration.
