The Story: When Mr. P and I grew out of the shoebox we moved into the year before and upgraded to a bigger place.
Inspiration: This layout that was posted on Studio Calico. I used it pretty verbatim.
This Layout Brought to You by Google: The picture of the apartment complex on the left is a screenshot from Google Street View. I didn’t take any pictures of it before we moved away. The map in the center is a screenshot from Google Maps. The picture on the right is my own – it shows our new patio and plants we put in.
Of Note: I love using map pins! I used a large one for the headline and a teeny tiny one on the map. I printed the text directly on my page using my wide-format printer. I added our new address at the bottom.
Hindsight: I may be several years behind in scrapbooking (hello 2005!), but hindsight is great sometimes: the text documents how we found out we got this place the same weekend we got engaged. It also documents that we lived there when we got married and Mr. P carried me over the threshold when we got home from our honeymoon. Ah, memories!
