Gothic Arches Challenge "Home Sweet Home"


Many of us have or will experience the "empty nest" syndrome, in which our children will go off to pursue their adult life which we as parents have worked hard to help prepare them for. My one and only child (daughter) went 3000 miles away to get a college education and I missed her terribly. But as a mom I knew that is exactly what I needed to do,...let her go. She was sooooo excited to be out on her own, and it was so worth it when she would tell me, that "there is no place like home"... They may go away for a bit, but what a blessing it is when they flutter back to the nest for a visit. TFL



Some products I used to make this project are...Tim Holtz bird cage die cut, glimmer mist for back ground, Mudd Puddles for texture on bird & PK Glitz embossing powder to add bling 0n birdcage.
