Running With Inspiration-Home is where the Heart is

I got home super late today and am exhausted. I knew that I had to get this project done but still wasn't sure what to do!
So, I kind of cheated a little bit :)
I decided to finish this little mini-book about our home!
I first made the outside of this album with the embroidery hoops when I was taking the Pretty online class with Elsie and Rachel.
Tonight, I finished it up, added some more details to the outside and scrap-booked some pages for the inside of my book.
Of course, my camera battery is dead AGAIN, and still no charger, so I had to scan in the pics of my pages :)
I really love it and I think it turned out great.
Our home is small but we love it soooo much and I think that this little treasure really portrays how much!!
So, here is the cover:

front and back cover:

inside covers:

and now the inside pages:

we love our home and we love each other.
Our home is where our hearts are <3
I also wanted to share another peace picture!! Vivianna sent this one to me and it is sooo cute:
