HOME AWAY FROM HOME
I had taken several photos of her room the day we moved her in last Fall, along with a shot of the outside of her dorm building. I included them all together on this page.
I book-ended my title with the Decorative Brads
to give it even more personality! I love them here!
For some reason, that cute couch icon included in this collection just said “dorm” to me! I cut this one out of the same sheet of 4×6 Horizontal Elements Paper
that I used for the “HOME” letters. Doesn’t that couch look inviting?! … Like it’s just waiting for 6 college girls to pile on it and start gossiping about their dating and class experiences!

I love when I find my kids asleep on the couch or in various other places around our house. To me, it means they feel safe, they feel cozy … they feel at home. And that is what this next page is about.
Next, I used various papers from the 6×8 paper pad
to build up some delicious patterned paper layers behind my two photos. The smaller scaled patterns are perfect for layering together in a situation like this!
I hand cut the large hearts from the 6×8 paper pad
and drew an outline around each one of them with a black journaling pen to match the outlining preprinted on the title letters. I then used my sewing machine to stitch them to the left side of the page, sprinkling them in a waterfall fashion and bending up each side of the heart for dimension.
I added my journaling with a black journaling pen, using the lines of the background notebook paper as a guide. A few enamel dots
sprinkled here-and-there adds even more color and dimension.
