Take 2.

2 years ago I made this layout:

I remember feeling great about FINALLY scrapping these photos.  (I'm about 21 in these pictures)  I LOVED these jeans, I liked the design and they were comfy.  This is about the time I met my hubby and he DID NOT like these jeans for WHATEVER reason.  Funny!  So I decided to feature that in the story I told about these jeans.  I wanted it to feel like this home in the background-it's where I grew up. When I  think of  this home I think quilts and patterns, my mom was always designing and because of lack of space she would place the pieces up on the curtain in our dining room.  See I "quilt" but on paper! :) 

Okay, fast forward two years and a couple of months.  My assignment today was to take another take on my layout.  I still wanted to capture that "home" feeling and decided to repeat this design.  I decided on my take 2 layout to sew more:
I actually love that extra sewing AND I also decided to pop my pictures out just a touch so that they were more center stage:
these pictures I took last month in a small town where my hubby grew up--LOVE these sunflowers!  My boy was such a good sport, crawling into the bed of flowers CAREFULLY not to step on anything else....
These layouts are featured on the Scrapbook Circle website as well.  LOVED the True Stories kit this month.
Thanks for the visit today!

So funny... I LOVE the idea of being inspired by an older layout - and also connecting the personal things to how it was inspired! ^_^

Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I haven't had a lot of time to get around lately, but I DO appreciate it! ^_^

Happy Friday!
