Stop & Enjoy

This is the first time I have ever done a layout with pictures from our garden. I used a sketch from book 
#3 of the Sketches for Scrapbooking series. I am really happy with the way this layout turned out but we have lived in this house for 10 years and nothing.......I'm not all that surprised that this is the first one, because we don't really have the "green thumb" or desire to do much gardening. Quite frankly we don't take the time to appreciate/enjoy what we have just outside our door. Jack & Gracie (fur babies) enjoy the backyard much more than we do. Insert giggle here.

I have been reorganizing my layouts this weekend to work in my Library of Memories, (thanks Stacy Julian, Finding Photo Freedom) which is why I am noticing gaps in my storytelling/memory keeping.
My family has 4 album categories....All About Us, People We Love, Places We Go & Things We Do. 
There are sub categories in each album, these are just the main ones.

After shifting layouts around in our albums, the All About Us (sub category Home) is VERY thin. 
This is the only one about any part of our home....I am very surprised about this. A lot of pictures get taken inside these walls of people, dogs, traditions and moments we want to remember.

Something new for the TO DO list I think.

Let me know in your comments.....Have you made any layouts about the place you call Home?

I hope you are enjoying your weekend, thank you for stoping by!

I love your layout! Sadly, I have not done many layouts about our home either. It will now be on my 'to do' list also :)
