I made this layout using our gorgeous new Roxie kit (LOVE that mix of plaids, florals and animal prints...sooo trendy and vogue!) for my journaling class at Convention. I feel so strongly that scrapping and journaling about the hard times in life, and the lessons we learn is JUST AS important as the happy times...maybe even more!
This layout chronicles our family 'adventure' into unemployment a few years ago, how it felt having to say good-bye to our home of 17 years, and the lessons I learned as we moved into our new home. If you click on any photo in this post, you can see it larger and in more detail. If you are interested in reading the journaling, you'll definitely have to click on that photo.
There are a few more detail shots below, but before we get to that, I wanted to let you know which amazing Close To My Heart products I used on this layout: Roxie Level 2 Paper Pack, Roxie Stickease, Pewter Mini-Medley Accents, Black Stamp Pad, Round Sponge, 3D Foam Tape. You can order these, and so many other wonderful CTMH products on my website 24/7!
Here are a few close-ups of different parts of the layout as well. These are much smaller photos (duh! I guess you can see that. lol) so if you want detail on them, you'll definitely want to click on them.
