Home Sweet Home

Last year, I took pictures of some of our favorite places in the neighborhood.  I used Photo Sheet so I can re-size them to fit two 3x4 pictures on one print.  They were perfect to use for this tutorial posted on A Cherry on Top earlier in the month.  Instead of using a larger picture, I used the Home Sweet Home card from the cut apart sheet of the Simple Stories Homespun collection which also serves as the title.   

I chose the green polka dot and pink striped papers since those colors are in the title card plus the wood grain paper as my neutral.  The title card is matted with pink and kraft card stock.  I inked all the edges so there's some definition to each layer.  

I finished this up with the paper strips and some embellishments.  Along with the main journaling, I added some extra details along the pictures.  

Looking at it now, I wish the paper strips were placed more randomly and that the little bird was placed at the lower end of the banner facing the other way.  But overall, I like it and plan to try and find other ways to use up scraps like this.
