Here is my next layout created for the circle journal. This one is for Lisa, who wanted to know what we missed when away from home. I tried to use lots of color for Lisa!
What do you think? I used a little inspiration from a sketch on PageMaps, as I was feeling a bit burnt out! I know how much Lisa loves those butterflies, so of course I had to use them. :)
To create the Crumb Cake (that name always makes me hungry) layer, I used the "negative" from the butterfly die-cut, sponging Crumb Cake ink into it like a stencil. That gave me great images of the butterflies, almost as if I had stamped them! I also stamped the flower vine from Vintage Vogue in Crumb Cake.
A bit of stitching on here too, as you can see. Even hand-stitched the buttons on at the bottom!
So when I'm away from home, I'm always missing:
1. Seth - when I was at the beach with my family, we talked over video chat almost every night
2. Fluffy - she's like my child, so I'm sure those of you with children (or furbabies too) can relate! :)
3. my own bed - nothing like relaxing in the comfort of your own!
4. home-cooked food - I guess I end up eating out a lot when away from home. To me though, there's just nothing like a good home-cooked meal. (I know the picture is of food not really "cooked", but it was of a recent meal of smoked mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and yummy homemade garlic bread.. hey, that's cooked! lol)
Here's my sign-in tag for Lisa (sorry, it's a little blurry for some reason):
Hope you like it all, Lisa! :)
