Home Sweet Home!

This week the theme, as you have no doubt seen already, is HOME!!
I decided to take that literally and complete a layout using some of the pictures of mine and my husband Tim's very first home :)
I cant believe that we bought this property in December 2001, about 2mths after we had been married! 10 years goes so very fast!

The gorgeous Scrapware goodies that I have used are:
CH197 Home Banner MINI
CH196 Houses MINI

Aren't these lil' houses simply adorable?? (I think they are!) And so very easy to use on layouts, off the page and cards! (Check here to see a beautiful example of a new home card using the mini houses).
I have given the chippy a quick coat of white paint, then put it through the cuttlebug in the swiss dots folder, then inked lightly over the embossing. To create the roof I have used a boarder punch and overlapped the strips. And finally I covered the little door and used a brad as the handle. the result : ooohhh cute!

Isn't this home banner scrumptious?? I have covered the little triangles of the banner and then embossed the letters with some puff white embossing powder and finished them off with a little bit of distressing ink.
So easy to do and it really makes your layout complete!

Thanks for letting me share! Hope you have been inspired to create, take a trip down memory lane like I did and scrap some of those all photos that have great memories attached to them!!
Luv Renee Iveson
