From Illinois to Ohio Layout

As some of you know, we recently moved to Ohio. With the first day of fall upon us and cooler temperatures arriving, I am beginning to wonder "What have I done"?! LOL!!! I actually love Cleveland and already feels like home. I do know, though, that I am not looking forward to winter and I hope it stays away for a bit yet!

INSPIRATION | Patterned Paper
While we were moving here, I took a photo with my phone of the highway sign for our exit. I have been waiting for the right papers to scrap them and this particular paper by Studio Calico seemed perfect with all the images of the different states. I then had fun adding bits and pieces from my stash that coordinated to create a fun little cluster in the bottom right hand corner. This was definitely a fun layout to create and a little different for me because I used three of the same photo.

Of course now, I know that Studio Calico released a new collection called That A Way that would be perfect for moving photos too and it may have to make it's way into my shopping basket! Just sayin'!!!
