SHOPPING OUR STASH #372 - Welcome Home

Hello and happy Tuesday!
This week at SHOPPING OUR STASH, the challenge is called
Welcome Home: we are looking for projects using items that
represent where you live, or, where you came from!

We are both originally from Illinois, but I moved to Maryland after my 
husband and I were married. He was attending 
Johns Hopkins University at the time, and after graduating, we stayed.
For my project, I created a 5" x 7" frame that shows my 
state flag, Maryland, in the background: 

On a recent rare excursion to the scrap-booking store nearest to me,
I picked up this fun paper one of the ladies there created.
I just added some washi tape along the sides, and die cut the 
home sweet home words using my Slice die cutter. It's hard to
see in this picture, but I covered the words with Glossy Accents. I glued
them onto some white card stock once dry, fussy cut around the words,
glued them to the background, and popped into a frame. 
Super simple to make!

I hope you find some time to create something using
items that represent where you are from (or came from), and
link up at Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see what you create, and
also learn a little bit more about you!
Thanks for visiting, and I hope that you have a great day!
