Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #49 Home is where the heart is!

Welcome to Tuesday! and Twilight Tuesday at that!
Sorry this post is a little late...

The sweet and kind Erica has given us this challenge this week! Great challenge hun!
"Throughout the series Bella discusses a lot of homes. She spends a lot of time at home, maybe not her home, but if the saying is true, it is home to her."
Craft challenge is pretty simple: Make a craft based on either a home discussed in the series or what means home to 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 Kind of small, a sort of bachelor pad with a bit of an outdated woman’s touch.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
The Cullen’s house: Giant windows, open, white, three stories, a mix of modern and classic.
The house on Isel Esme
Edward and Bella’s cottage: my personal favorite, small, a mix of styles, stone floors, small garden, fireplace, think Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
and of course you can’t forget Emily Young’s house with the flower boxes and something always cooking
Billy Black’s small but welcoming home.

Comment portion: If you could build your dream home, what would it be like?
I was thinking house right away and I was going to use my cute There She Goes Home is where the heart is stamp set, I colored the house and just didnt feel it... I was looking for paper when I found this Sugar Nellie image RAK'd to me and I thought Ah Ha, this is what I will use! She looks so much like my daughter, just adorable. I colored her with copics and used Earth Love Cosmo Cricket paper to compliment her colors. I also took Mercys Tuesday sketch # 42 and changed the dimensions a bit.

My kids make my house a home for me...I get the warm fuzzies when I think how they have blessed my life and have made me whole, when the world gets tough I look to them and see their beautiful smiles and warm hugs and all is okay.
Stamps Used: Home is where the heart is-There She Goes, sugar nellie
Paper Used: Earth Love-Cosmo Cricket, White cs-GP, chocolate chip, groovy guava cs-SU
Ink Used: memento, versafine onyx black, more mustard, close to cocoa-SU
Accessories Used: Copics, copper brads, scalloped edge punch-SU
