A Home is Built with Love and Dreams

We have a cabin which is a few hours from our home in the city. For the last 28 years this has been our home away from home. There are so many memories here. It's where our children grew up playing on the beach, going for quad rides, fishing, skidooing, swinging on the swings and sitting by the fire. This is my refuge. There is nothing more memorable than waking up early in the morning and going out to sit on the deck and watching the birds on the lake.  This layout is for a sketch at Sketches With A Twist. It's my first time visiting and I'm so excited I found this site. My hidden journaling reads:

My Home Away From Home
My dad built this cabin for his family but
passed away before he could enjoy it himself.
He left his legacy in these walls and beams.
The trees that he plants and the memories he left behind will be 
cherished forever. 
This is the home my Dad built.

Lynne now its not just the cabin that will hold these beautiful memories of your dad and your time with family at your home away from home, but also this gorgeous layout. Your colors and design are just wonderful and I really love the way you have layered/framed your photos in a grid like fashion. Thanks so much for joining us at Sketches with a Twist.
