February Main Challenge #25- Home

February Main Challenge-Home is Where the Heart Is

Hello! It's Felicity bringing you this challenge that I hope leaves you feeling warm and snug, and as comfortable as your favorite old slippers. 

This month's challenge is to scrap about where you feel most at home.

And the Scrap Twist is to use a tag or journal block to include the details. A picture tells a thousand words, but sometimes there are details the picture can't tell. Share your story of home with us. Where do you call home? How does it make you feel?

To me, home is where the heart is. It is the place where you find peace and comfort, easy familiarity and a sense of belonging. That's how I felt when I found Scrapping Everyday Miracles. I had been wandering around a little aimlessly at church and with my religious studies. Yes, I was learning a lot and I met some lovely people who shared their beliefs with me, but I couldn't really place my newfound faith until I had a way to express it, to live it, to share it. Something just 'clicked' the very first time I hopped over to this blog. I knew I had found somewhere to call home.

Perhaps you feel most at home in a location - a family home, your church, or where you grew up. Maybe home is in the arms of loved ones, a partner, or a dear friend. Home could be a remembered place, triggered by a scent or a sound. For me, the scent of gardenias on a sunny day brings back a flood of memories from my childhood and the place we called home for 13 years. Where will you find home?

Here are the layouts our Design Team created (hover your mouse over each project to learn more about where each Design Team Member finds home).
