I'm taking Ali Edwards' online class at Big Picture Classes called Hello Story. It's only been one week, but so far I'm loving the content. I feel like I'm in a good place with the creative (and fun!) side of scrapbooking, but I really want more stories about my family, my life, and myself in my albums. Week one was about timelines, which is a really good place to start to get some facts onto pages. I made a few layouts this week inspired by that theme, and here's one of my favorites, about all the places I've lived in since I was 20. I moved quite a lot (few cities, two countries), until a year ago, when we bought a house (it's really a dream house...) of our own in Austria, so hopefully no more moving for many many years...
I started with that strip of wood-like patterned paper from the Composition & Color collection by Alison Kreft for Webster's Pages. I loved how it looked, and I thought it fit the subject of the page. I added some Dear Lizzy papers, from 5th&Frolic and that cute yellow paper from MME.
The embellishments are a mix of 5th&Frolic, that cute frame from The Pier by Crate, a circle die cut from Yes, Please by Amy Tangerine and some buttons and brads from my stash.
Thanks for visiting!
