Goodbye Gilmour

Our first home was a great one. We lived on Gilmour St. in Ottawa for a long time-4 years. It was a great home on the second floor of a two-apartment house. It was large and had great natural lighting. I made many a scrapbooking page in that living room! I loved living there-with access to everything downtown and our friends nearby.

Now, as we look for a new home, I couldn't help but reminisce about our first home on Gilmour and so, on Friday night I dug out some more hipstamatic photos and made this layout chronicling our move from that apartment home to Newfoundland.


I had a really hard time using this sassafras paper. It just wasn't working for me. Then I had this idea to group a bunch of little photos together and it seemed to come together seamlessly. A few drops of mist/paint on the page gave it a little more dimension and made for the perfect background to tell this story with the faded photos. I made the title vertical and did the same with the journaling. I used a cute piece of paper from Studio Calico to number each of the pics and just anchored the picture section with some leftover strips of pattern paper and Crate Paper boarder stickers and a few buttons.


It was a great place to start our adventures together. Now, let's find the next one...

  1. What a great layout! I love it when something clicks when making a layout and it all comes together like that. Thanks for sharing!
