TTIC # 49 - Home Is Where The Heart Is....


Hello everyone...Well it's Tuesday...AGAIN! I swear I have no clue as to where this week has already gone....Let alone this year!.... I know it's seems like I am always complaining about how fast this year is passing me by...But I tell you what, every time I sit down to do another post for Twilight Tuesday I am totally amazed that 7 days has already past me by...LOL!

This week our beautiful and talented Erica has chosen


"Home Is Where The Heart Is"


Erica writes: Throughout the series Bella discusses a lot of homes. Spends a lot of time at home, maybe not her home, but if the saying is true, it is home to her. This challenge is pretty simple. Make a craft based on either a home discussed in the series or what home means too you. Here are some of the houses discussed in the book....

Charlie's House: Unchanged since Renee moved out. I always remember her discussing the yellow cabinets in the kitchen. Kind of small, a sort of bachelor pad with a bit of an outdated woman's touch.

Renee's Homes: In Phoenix and in Jacksonville.

The Cullen's House: Giant windows, open, white, three stories, a mix of modern and classic decor.

The Holiday Home On Isle Esme:

Edward and Bella's Cottage: My personal favourite, small, a mix of many styles, stone floors, small garden, fireplace, think Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

And of course you can't forget....

Emily and Sam's Home: With flower boxes and something always cooking.

Billy and Jacob's Home: Small but always welcoming.

Comment Portion: If you could build your dream home, what would it be like?



So for this fantastic challenge I chose to base a card on Emily and Sam's home....




When I think of Emily and Sam's I always imagine a warm, happy, something always baking in the oven kinda home... A place that you can walk into and immediately you feel welcome and comfortable.... So I went for that country feel....



I pulled out my trusty Cosmo Cricket DP, which fitting enough is called
"Apron Strings" and tried the whole warm and cosy feel for this card... I picked out a quote that I have had lying around for ages and .....There you go!
