OK... I'm jumping into Myra's "Write Now" challenge with both feet! I've decided to take her challenge every week and turn my layouts into a Shutterfly book! I've also decided to keep the layouts somewhat similar so the book "flows"... I'm using Katie's "Naturally Krafty" papers, black and white alphas and minimal accents. So, here's my layout for the "Home" theme challenge... I think it was two weeks ago?

Anyways, this isn't my house but the house I grew up in... my parents still live there. It's now the house of grandchildren, but I have sooooooo many happy memories from my childhood... just wanted to document a few! (And, sorry... I "whited out" the address... Smile)

the house i grew up in... the backyard where i fell off that wall and scraped the whole side of my
leg. the front yard and the basketball hoop where i spent hours and hours and hours playing
sports with my dad, laurie, brian and lots of friends. the side yard that didn’t have these stepping
stones... we just ran thru the pebbles saying “ouch, ouch, ouch!” the whole time! treasured memories...
