These were the exact words of Ethan when we left our house last year. It was such a bittersweet moment for us - we longed for this yet when we were leaving, it was sadder than I thought and was quite difficult. The house is owned by my in laws and was our home for almost 6 years. It has beautiful memories we would never forget - many of them are the firsts in our lives. Our first Christmas together, our first new born, our first new year, etc. I remember that we are the ones who chose the color of the house when my in laws wanted it repainted. The colors reflect our colorful personality. People from our subdivision would kid about our house as "bahay ni Kuya" from the Pinoy Big Brother show.
For this layout, I drew the clouds and used them as my journaling spots. I kept the embellishments into a minimum since the colors of the photos are already too loud. I love that the papers I used match the colors of the house. The base paper is from Fancy Pants - it's actually a summer themed paper. The blue paper is from BasicGrey Lime Rickey. I love this line, it resembles one of my all time favorite Color Me Silly Collection also from BG. The polka dots, butterfly and the flowers are from Tinkering Ink - another line of paper known for its bold designs and loud colors.
Thanks for looking!
