Home is Where the Love Is
So, tomorrow I pack up my bags and head to Houston! I'm so excited to see everyone! I have a group of wonderful friends that live in my old neighborhood. So, there will be LOTS of girl time and laughs, tears and late night talks. Patty, Sandra, Nancy, Shelly, and Marchel....I love 'em to pieces and can't WAIT to hang out with them in 'my' neighborhood again! My daughter Alison is in Victoria, TX (it's a long story how she ended up there instead of here!) and graduates High School Friday, so my older daughter Haley and I will be going to graduation. I'm sure there will be lots of tears that night because 1. she's my youngest and last child and is already graduating High School! and 2. It's been a VERY long road getting her to this point and I'm sooo very happy and proud of her that she pulled it off!
My older daughter, Haley, who turned 25 years old on Friday lives in Houston, is a full time college student at Sam Houston University and is a manager at Pappadeaux. She has recently moved in with the love of her life (and future husband...no ring yet, but it's just a matter of time), Justin and they are beyond excited about making a home together. SO, I came home last night and banged out this layout for them to hang in their new home...I framed it in a 12 X 12 shadow-type frame...
This page was fun to create...I fell in love with the papers (they are from Anna Griffin and Bazzil Basics), I inked the edges of all of them with Tim Holtz distress ink (some in Faded Jeans and some in Broken China). The flourish is Prima, Say it in Crystals, the yellow flowers (which I also inked with Faded Jeans) were a gift from my sister Dana and the Graphic 45 images to the bottom right are from my secret sister over at scrapbook.com...she also got me the Broken China distress ink, which I LOVE. I cut the two big papers marquee shapes out by hand and the smaller blue one with my Cricut Storybook cartridge. The tiny roses I got from Michaels and I just LOVE them!
I hope her and Justin like it! I know she has some cute yellow curtians that my mom made, so perhaps they'll match their new home's decor!
