This month, when working with this set, I felt it was more suited towards layouts instead of cards. So here's two layouts that went perfectly for the sentiments in this stamp set. I hope you enjoy!

I created this layout about something we probably don't scrapbook about often - funerals. But when I see this stamp set, it makes me think of layouts that have to do with being home. And here, my mom opened her home for the final three months of my Uncle's life. They had always had a rough relationship but in the end, the love and loyalty to family brought my mom to the decision to open up her home to him during his greatest time of need. What a great thing for me to remember about my mom's love and kindness.


The next layout is of Christmas morning.... photos of us at home celebrating the arrival of a trampoline delivered by Santa and then later, sharing Christmas with my in-laws at their home - the family home where my husband grew up. The sentiments on this set can go so well with so many layouts as so many things take place at home. 

Thanks for visiting!
Now hop on over to Nancy Brown's Blog to see her creations!
