A Sneak Peek

Good Saturday morning peeps!!

This is a sneak peek of an item I have been working on all month. It is on it's way to my little acorn on splitcoast. I am in a group of challenge chaser on splitcoast and we are do an AAA swap, and one of the things we were to do was an altered item. I purchased a plain paper mache house at Hobby Lobby. I covered it with some "yummy" DS paper from basic grey, I used yellow vellum to cover the window and door openings, decorated with a wreath and some plastic string lights. I also used the MS drippy goo punch to look like melting snow or icicles. I think you could decorate it alot more with items to look like a gingerbread house or with some trees and snowmen, but everything else I tried just distracted for the house and I like the simple look of it.

I really love how this came out and have made another for myself. I used a flame less candle to put inside and it is very cool with the lights off, It flickers and glows like a real candle with out the flame. I really hope my "little acorn" likes it! I can hardly wait for her to get it! I can't say who she is yet, but even by the slim chance she looks at my blog, she won't know it is coming to her until she gets the package.

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and have a super weekend!!
