OUAS - HOME

 Over at "Once upon a sketch" The theme of april challenge is 
"HOME."
Check out all the great prizes that you can win here

You can create a layout and interpret the theme "HOME" however you like based on the following sketch. You can journal as little or as much as you like, but your layout must incorporate this theme and the sketch. 

Here is my layout 

"Home is where you heart is"



I created a page of My Mother in law on her wedding day - My husband's father had lived and worked in Australia for many years. After many years of writing to each other she travelled 6 weeks on a boat from Italy to Australia, then to be married one week after arriving. She left her family behind in Italy to follow her heart and dreams in Australia. A new life in a new home and country.

"Home is where your heart is."
Using' Sweet nothings"Collection from Kaisercraft.



This is the sketch to follow:




Thanks for looking
Have a great day, :)
cheers Adriana XX
