There's No Place Like Home

Ahh, that phrase, "There's no place like home," reminds me of The Wizard of Oz movie.  It was Haley's favorite, favorite movie when she was 3 years old.  We watched it many times a day.  =)  She had such a fascination with anything Oz-related, and even wore her very own Ruby Red Slippers every day.  Those glittery red shoes even made an appearance beneath her pretty white flower girl dress, worn in my sister's wedding.  It was adorable.  Sigh.

So where was I?  Oh, right.  About to show you some new home cards!  Yes.


I used Papertrey Ink's Boards & Beams, and that set is so much fun to play with.


The way the word "home" wound up on a punched circle was completely by accident.  That word had smudged on the first try, and so, this idea was born.  I like the new way so much better, that when I made a second card (below), I did the same thing to it.


I'm so glad you came by today.  =)  Have a beautiful day!

"Home" on the circle looks like a stroke of genius, only to find out it's a creative way to hide a boo-boo. Love it... And would love to see a peek of the ruby red slippers.

These a precious! Great New Home cards - a lot of dimension and love that sentiment! Your story is so cute too - my kids never got into the story but I tried to get them into it! I dress Crystal up as Dorothy for Halloween a few times with ruby red slippers and she never got it. I love the old story and the Wicked stories too. Hugz!!!!
