Home Sweet Home

Welcome to the start of April's Members' Blog Hop from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog .  I chose the third challenge this month to use a BIG title on my layout.

Forgive the pun, but I couldn't resist it for these snaps of where I used to live in Sweden ... we did a little trip down two memory lanes during our Scandinavian tour last summer.  I'd never lived in a flat before but both were rather comfy, warm (triple-glazed against the Swedish winters) and not too high (no lifts)!  I've added arrows and addresses since photographing the page.

I used up the blue patterned paper from my April Counterfeit Kit with frame & border stamps to create larger frames for my photos. The title is made from Sizzlits Boys Will Be Boys dies and Scenic Route chipboard alphas; I've added a flair badge made by Lesley and some SC veneer stars.

I wonder which of this month's challenges will feature on the next stop on the hop: Tina's blog.

If you get lost whilst hopping the full order is published on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog today.

P.S. There's still time to have a go with the S J Crafts April Challenge and be in with a chance of a prize ... check it out ... plus the winner & favourites from March's challenge has just been announced here!

I love punny titles - and the color scheme here is fab too.

I love the layout, how do you get your photos so square? I've been struggling with that for a while!

Lesley G said...

Brilliant title, gorgeous colours and that flair is just so cute ;)
Love how your colours replicate the flag :)

Lisa said...

oh I adore that flair! it's perfect for this and totally gorgeous! Lovely page and isn't it lovely to go down memory lane like this - sounds strange but I did it in Birmingham a few years ago and have been slowly working through some of those stories which I only thought to capture now that I don't live there any more!

Very clever title for a lovely walk down memory lane.

I think it's a great title because it actually tells you more than the simple "Home sweet Home" would

Tina Campbell said...

I love love your flair and the entire design of the layout. You have reminded me how much I miss Scenic Route! I absolutely love all of the international participants in the blog. I get to travel to places I will never see in person.

Very striking design Jemma and that big title has a real impact - love the fresh colours, I think it has a really Swedish feel to it! :o)

I too love the play on words...good trip down memory lane...I should go back to the apartment I lived in when I was in my 20's and photograph/scrap it:). Great LO!

I'm partial to a good pun. Loving the flair and the scattering of stars.

I like the cool Scandinavian blue you've used on the LO and the yellow complements it beautifully.
