My D.I.Y Guy

Wow! Posting two days in a row here. =)

Thought I'd share this layout on my own blog since it was posted today on Multi-photo Scrapbooking blog!! I love this blog because they feature multi-picture layouts from scrappers who want to upload and share their work. Check them out, be inspired, and think about participating in some of their challenges.

So here is one of my favorite layouts that I have been saving for the right moment! I love it because it features my one and only husband who has worked so hard on our little house over the past 20 years. We (meaning "he") only have a few more things to do and then we will sell it and try to find something just a little bit bigger...I need a scrap room! LOL!

Left side shares a 20 year olf photo (left) of him working on nursery for Joel which was our first project, and the picture on the right was taken this summer working on exterior painting.

Right side is here. I should have grabbed a picture of the dining room because he totally renovated that as well. It's a beautiful gold color with wainscoating and lots of beautiful white woodworking. I know...How could I forget that, right? I'll have to point it out in a future layout. 

Here they are together (Recipe below)
