A Sure Sign That We Have Company

Just a quick post today to share a new layout. I've had this photo in my storage binder for a while and thought it worked perfect with these black, red & yellow papers and embellishments.


For the first time in many years, we did not have any visitors this summer because of busy and conflicting schedules, but this photo makes me smile remembering all the times my nieces and nephews have visited over the years.


Journaling reads: Shoes beside the guest room dresser always means our nieces and nephews are here for a visit! This photo is from our 2010 Christmas Get-Together.


Have you taken a photo of shoes lately? What do think of when you see that photo?

Great layout. I took a photo of shoes a few months ago when I noticed 5 pairs of my own shoes - all red

I've had football boots, trainers, running shoes, golf shoes and many more in my porch for years and this just from my youngest son!!

Karen said...

Love this color combination. I'll have to remember to snap a photo of shoes next time the family is here!

Close - I took a photo of my daughter's bare feet, to remind me that she always pulls off shoes and socks as soon as she comes into the house!

I love the moments you scrap, Melissa :) I love your layouts too, of course - but I love that you capture the little details along with the big moments!

This is a great layout. We have a house guest now and I'll have to get a photo of what items show we have someone staying over. Thanks for the inspiration.

I took a picture of the "heels" I finally could wear 2 years post knee surgery :) Maybe I should take a picture of the current state of the den, fridge and pantry since both boys are home....inspiration ;)

Perfect layout for that photo. Good idea to take one of shoes. Right now, in our foyer are a pair of work boots, two pairs of slippers, and my muddy sneakers. Going to grab my camera...

Great idea for a layout! I took a photo of my flip flop collection when I unpacked them recently. Haven't done anything with it yet, so thanks for sharing this! :)

a couple of years ago we had all the youth from church here for part of their progressive dinner. I took a picture of all of their shoes piled by the front door! Fun layout Melissa

Love the colours on this. thanks for commenting on my storytrelling Sunday-got to ask What's a letterjacket?

This is such a nice thing to scrap, Melissa! and glad it holds such nice memories. Those bold colours are great with the photo.

Yes! How nice - I took a picture very recently of the shoes left at our door by a friend of TSO. When I come down the stairs and see shoes at the front door I know someone has come to visit. A lovely thing to document

LOL a great topic for a page.
This is our sign for company too. We have shoe cabinets for (most of) our own shoes though the boys' hi-tops are now so huge that they don't fit!

Terrific page! I found your blog through your comment on the PRT show #186. Thanks for including a link so we could see it.
Merry Christmas!
