Lasting Memories 32

This week, our challenge at Lasting Memories is spring. I thought long and hard on this one.  I didn't really have any "spring" photos.  I would have used pictures of my garden, but my flowers aren't blooming yet this year.  Then I realized that I moved into my house in the spring of 2008.  We have beautiful photos of the front of the house with the azaela bushes in bloom.  So I used a picture of the front and back of our house for this layout.  I also used spring colors.

I used the sketch from Sketchy Thursday.  I altered it slightly to allow for two photos:



 
Details:
House Paper by American Crafts, Polka dot & stripe paper from scrap bin (I think it's by Miss Elizabeth's)
K&Co House & "Our First Home" stickers
Jolees "Our New Home" title wave sticker
Bic Markers
Brown Chalk Ink

Challenges:
Lasting Memories - spring
Sketchy Thursday - sketch
Craft Your Days Away - spots & stripes
One Stop - spots & dots
