The layout I am sharing today is Once Upon a Sketch. The journaling criteria is home. 

I was really excited by this theme. The photo I used is the last photo with my siblings when we were all together. I love this photo. Being the eldest in my family I feel quite protective of my brothers and sisters. I love them dearly and they truly are my home.

Here is a close up of my journaling. It came from a paper collection. I did have a quote picked out, but after looking through my stash, I chose this instead.

A paper rose created using Spellbinders Rose creations.

Another reference to home. I had this cardstock in my stash as well.

I used a variety of paper punches to create my border. 

I used an embellishment from Garden Gala to add my title.

Welcome to my family!


Paper: Webster's Pages Garden Gala, Glitz Design Beautiful Dreamer, Pink Paislee Botanical Garden, Home on the Range, Prima Pixie Glen

Ink: Distress ink tattered Rise and Antique Linen, Distress Stain Picket Fence

Other: Martha Stewart doily edge, arch lattice and deco flowers, Kaisercraft wooden flourishes iron gate and, pearl flourish and pearls, Spellbinders Rose creations, Prima alphabet stickers, Distrezz it all, Prima distress and craft knife, paper doily, Green Tara flowers, Hooked on Craft flowers.

Thanks for stopping by!
