The Road Home (Layout #49)

This layout was started at my Twitterpated workshop a week or so ago, and I was able to add my pictures and journaling this past weekend.

One thing I love about Close To My Heart's how-to guides is that they are so easy to personalize! I did not have the photo sizes that the guide recommended, but I love how MY photos turned out.

When you journal (you do journal, right?), do you include as many of the 5Ws as possible? (You know, the who, what, when, where, and why!) I love the scenery at the end of our road and pulling down our driveway. There truly is no place like home!

Do you ever go beyond the photos and tell more? I hope that is what I've done here. As almost an afterthought, I was able to add some journaling about how our road is named for the girls' great-grandmother. I'm glad I've recorded that little bit of history for future generations, even if I didn't tell the entire story. Hmm, sounds like I might have to create another layout...

Sometimes the story for the layout comes first, and then the pictures follow. What a great way to preserve our family's history and memories!


  1. Great photos and a genealogy lesson combined: priceless!

  2. I love twitterpated! That is a great layout. I may lift it, cause at the peak of leaf season I did a drive up our mountain pictures from the gate. I would love to hear the story of the street name.
    I did a Thanks giving layout with the twitterpated and the many thanks. I can't wait to show you.

    Two ladies in my scrapbook class finished their scrapbooks and they were awesome! When I look back at my first stuff..this was sosoo good.

  3. That is your driveway???? How lucky are is gorgeous. What a great idea to scrap it in a LO...I just love it.

  4. The very last picture on the right is the actual driveway (and the little inset picture too). The others are the end of "our" road.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and leaving me a comment!
