Carrie,

We built a home last year and opted for the standard lighting fixtures. Well, what we have in our dining room is an ugly thing that is to represent a chandelier. When we moved, I brought with me several lighting fixtures, one being a chandelier from my mom's home (which is why w took the standard lighting option). I will journal the story on my layout.

Thanks for sparking a creative lo about our new home.

I am so glad that you were inspired by the chandelier and that your layout will be a wonderful memory of building your new home and having a special treasure handed down from your mother!

I hope to see the layout one day!
