Favourite ... place I've lived

Well I'm only a week behind in my 2011 Favourites Journal so I'm pretty happy with myself right about now.  Week #8's topic is your favourite room.  I know exactly what I'm going to do for that one, with a little bit of a 'spin' on it.  So to speak LOL (don't worry all will be revealed!).  I just need to have a few photos printed which GB is hoping to do after work for me today.  (Thanks GB.)

Meanwhile hmmm ... the favourite place I've lived (week 7)?  So many places, although not as many as most; so many memories; how do you choose?  It was a tough decision.  In the end it was a sad decision because we ended up selling my 'favourite'.  No doubt in the future our new home will become an equal if not more of a favourite.  For the time being though I think my favourite place to live will be wherever GB and Magoo are because home is where your heart is and my heart belongs to them.

Anyways here is my journal entry titled SOLD ...

When creating this journal entry, I printed a pdf copy of the realtor's flyer from when we sold the house.  On top I layered some old photos from GB's childhood which I printed on transparencies.  I also included a photo (again printed on a transparency) of GB and Magoo sitting on the front step the very last time we locked the door and walked away.  A poignant moment.  I made my own "SOLD" sign with Sizzix Serif Essentials alpha dies and then printed lots of words in varying fonts about what the house meant to me (us).  At the top is a pull out sheet of A4 paper on which is printed the list of reasons we loved the location of our home ... a document which was used when marketing our home.  So lots of ephemera at play here.

The various fonts used include: Charlemagne std, Academy Engraved LET, Harrington, Wide Latin, 2Peas Ocean Crossing, Didot, Perpetua Titling MT, Bernard MT Condensed, KinkajuuStewNF, Century Gothic, Desdemona, Jazz LET and Stencil.
