    Christmas is over, but not the songs in our heart!
    [​IMG]
    The presents are put away...I am wanting to take my tree down, but there is one song, that no matter what day it is in the year...I cry...I mean just weep. Happy tears, because of the memories my parents made for me of home. Christmas pasts...
    but listen to the song and create!

    I am juggling Christmas and kids home, so will have to sneak in some creative time...and I hope you can too..
    HOME, where home is for you now, then or in the future with Christmas...
    I do have some inspiration that tugged my heart:
    this sketch grabbed me, and the font work is pure wonderful!

    and this one I want to re create with reds and teals and laugh while I am in the midst of making it!

    then there is this with the music and grungy fun of hybrid, which makes me want to open photoshop and get me digi on..
    oh the dishes can wait..I will be back with my page!

    The song makes me very sad, but I created what I thought looked like a home that people would always want to come home to. A country home, which I've never lived in, but have always admired and thought they looked so cozy especially in the snow.

    Thanks Again For Another Great Challenge!...I Think Pretty Much Everybody Knows This Christmas Song...Perhaps It Has Different Meanings For Different People & I Seriously Couldn't Imagine Not Being With My Family For Christmas...I'd Probably Have A Melt Down!...But That Being Said...You Can Perhaps Surmise That Home & Family Mean Everything To Me So Creating This Layout Was A Task Of Immense Joy!...I Hope You Can See All The Layers I Put Into This Layout With All The Wonderful Snow Falling Like Everywhere!...And All The Effects/Overlays That I Played With To Create The Interesting Look To The Neighborhood Street Accenting The Roofs Of The Houses In The Picture & The Blended Background I Created Using 3 Different Papers Blended With The Original Photo In One Piece To Create The Background & Then Adding The Cut Pieces On Top Of All That...This Layout Pretty Much Sums Up My Current Existence Here Where We Live & It Is Really Cold Too!...Hopefully You Can Get This Winter/December/Cold Vibe From The Layout But Also The Contrast Of The Warm & Inviting Vibe Of Home & Spending All That Special Time With Family & Friends This Time Of Year...

    I support an organization that reaches out to many people groups, among them the refugees of Syria, Nigeria, Yemen, and others. A recent report stated that some had returned home and were grateful to be in their homeland, even if they had nothing but rubble. I couldn't get them out of my mind or off my :heartslub. I wonder how current situations will affect them? Will they be in danger again? Home for Christmas means something very different for them.

    I'm double-dipping on this one as well, using this for my Day 31 for DYD. Not exactly an AJ page, but I did add a few of Nicole's artsy items on it. :-) I had my layout 100% done with a photo of our home taken a few days ago. And then today it snowed, not a lot, more of a dusting, so I went out, snapped a few more photos and then redid the entire page to go along with the snow theme... Sigh...

    I have just really wanted to use the heart from this kit, and as one who has lived in a different country to the one I was born it, I know it is true too...
