I cannot thank my contributors enough. Without Katie, Megan and Kaeley these last few weeks my little blog would have been nothing but a barren wasteland. My move has definitely been kicking my rear...although I thought it would be great having the better part of two months to complete a move, I have realized that it has just prolonged what is a horrible chore no matter how you look at it. On a positive note, the end is definitely in sight. I have a few more things to get out of my old apartment this weekend, but I am determined to have it emptied and cleaned by the end of the weekend. The new place is coming along very nicely - things are coming together, but there is still quite a ways to go....hoping to make good progress here as well this weekend and I promise by the first part of next week to share a few photos. Surprisingly, I haven't lost but a few followers so a huge thank you to those of you that are sticking by me...things will improve - I promise!
And now, let's move on to Katie. It is that time again - time for:
Katie has just completed a big move herself. She and her fiance AJ are new transplants to Baton Rouge, LA...moving all the way from Chicago, IL. Katie manages to capture all events - big or small and her most recent move is no exception! I am just crazy for this layout documenting their big drive....take it away, Katie!
Wow. I can't believe the last time I was here we were still living in Chicago, and our things were packed up in a truck headed down to Louisiana.
And now here we are, in Louisiana.
Mostly unpacked, getting used to our new surroundings, trying to find a decent nail salon and a grocery store that sells thin cut chicken cutlets.
But before we could get here and get unpacked, we needed to drive.
And I, of course, made a layout about it!
There are two things I love about this layout, you know, besides the story it tells.
I love that I got to use my Cricut Destinations cartridge (above) and I love the stickers that I found in Hobby Lobby (below).
In fact, these stickers inspired the entire layout - I knew I'd document our trip, but I wasn't sure what it would look like until I saw these stickers. But for some reason (I think it was the arrows) I really wanted to make a 2-page layout once I saw them!
What inspires you when you are creating a layout?
