The Pipe Dream (layout #31)


I've been doing a lot of scraplifting lately, but this layout is entirely my own! I've wanted to do a layout with these old passport photos for ages, but we are total nomads, so everything gets shuffled around and misplaced. I finally found all three pairs and kept them on my table until now. Thank goodness they're safe now! The story is just too funny. We really thought we were going to make a fresh start in Australia, without even any jobs to go to, which was just really far fetched and risky with a little baby. But it's funny to look back on this crazy dream of ours and see how far we've come as a family since then. Who knows, maybe one day, it'll happen!

Supplies: unknown cardstock, Scenic Route patterned paper, lined paper from my journal, Creative Memories green and orange fine tip pens, Sakura Jelly Roll white pen, Galaxy green bullet-point pen, Giggle Caps My Acrylix stamp set (Close to My Heart), Versamark Ink, and unknown clear embossing powder
