Hi guys! I sort of had a speed scrap session and got two layouts done in this week's video! So have a look!
I have promised myself that I want to finish this album before the end of November, so I am hoping to double up for the next few weeks just to get it done. Today's layouts document the landscaping we did as part of the Sweat Equity program, and then the final walk-thru of the house. Whew!
This is the first layout, first with just photos and journaling cards (above), and then completed below.
I think I will include the close-up photos here as a Gallery. Feel free to click on any image and it will enlarge, and it will also allow you to scroll through each one!
Here is the second layout, and it includes an insert which is a darling photo of our daughters hanging out happily together on the carpet. I love this photo - it actually sums up how we felt about having the house completed and feeling a sense of calm before the storm.
This layout across the whole page was incredibly neutral because of all the empty rooms, so I selected products from the Maggie Holmes Open Book collection that are also very neutral. Her black and white patters, with just tiny touch of colors here and there, are perfect.
Here again is a Gallery for layout 2:
When you flip the insert you find a little love note that Natalie drew for me, and then the rest of the completed house.
The completed layout, and our finished home.
One more Gallery for you to see. So many wonderful photos!
I truly hope you have enjoyed following along in this project! It has been so much fun documenting this big thing for our family, and I am so happy this is written down and photographed and able to be looked at any time we wish. It's a great feeling. Stay tuned for next week, I will show you my plans for the rest of the album!
