I’ve recently been expanding my scrap blog reading, and came upon Lain Ehmann’s blog called ScrapHappy. She recently posted about what “home” means, and quoted a line from Finding Nemo: “I look at you, and I’m home.” Then she challenged others to make a page using that as the inspiration point.

Since the simple idea of it got me all teary eyed, I started thumbing thru photos, and came upon one of my guys all together and smiley in the back seat of my mother’s car. So here’s the layout I made with Lain’s inspiration:

I used some of my favorite products: flowers from making memories and close to my heart, tim holtz’ grungeboard and distress stickles. The patterned paper is from DCWV’s sweet stack, I believe. I think it looks like chocolate cake, how about you?

So, what makes you think of home? Is it a person, a place, a smell? Cleaning out my mother-in-law’s house has made me a little more aware of what makes me think of home.
