Hearts Build a Home

Good morning!  Today’s card is special to me.  My family has moved a lot over the past 20 years or so, and I’ve learned not to get too attached to physical properties.  It’s not the house that makes the home – it’s the people and the love inside it.  I certainly understand the nostalgia that goes along with visiting a house you grew up in, especially because my parents still live in the same house that I lived in from the time I was 5 until I was 20.  However, the memories are tied to emotional moments and people more than any physical or tangible “thing” – does that make sense?  Anyway, I believe that you make “home” wherever you are by filling it with love and memories, friends and family:

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

This sandcastle image was from Making Our Mark but I can't seem to find them online anymore.  I colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and used some paper scraps from my stash, along with a ribbon & a heart-shaped gem sticker embellie.  Peace.
