What's Happening Today at the Flying Unicorn

 It's my turn for the Today post at the Flying Unicorn forums.  I created a journal type entry layout, to mimic the journaling that is all the rage right now.

The Basic Grey Kissing Boothcollection has the perfect element stickers as well as cardstock diecuts and transparencies to create this type of journal look.  All of these Basic Grey items are from the Flying Unicorn store.

I wanted to show something other than a Valentine theme for the Kissing Booth papers.  This layout describes finding our first home where we've lived for the past 29 years.  The theme "be mine" is how I really felt while waiting for the paperwork to finalize the sale.

I started with the ledger paper, punching down the side to create a page from a realtor's notebook.   I placed the paper slightly angled and off center onto the patterned paper.  All of the papers are distressed with Ranger Distress Inks, using Old Paper, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, and Tattered Rose. Ranger Distress Inks also are available in the Flying Unicorn Store.

I used baker's twine to create a banner with the pennants and to anchor the birds.  I used pop dots  and curled the pennants with my finger nail for a 3-D effect.

I used two of the transparencies, lining both of them with the green paper.  On one I journaled about buying our first home.   Here is the other transparency (for sale sign) along with some other embellishments, including the Tim Holtz Ideaology key. This photo shows the fold of the paper where I tucked in the photo of our home as well as what I used to create the journal effect.

I added a lot of the bird and heart stickers to symbolize how much we love our home and how it is our little nest.

A lovely layout and you conveyed the feelings so beautifully.
Your home is simply gorgeous, in fact I'd say perfect. Really precious to have it as the focal of a layout.
