A House of Thrills

It's not too haunted nor too spooky, but this cutely
decorated Thrilling house just says HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
My little house is premiering at Authentique Paper Blog today...have a look:

When I received this Maya Road paper mâché house, it started 
speaking "make me into a haunted house!"...and so, I did.
  I started by painting the piece with an acrylic black paint.  




 For the roof, I cut apart various patterns from the hexagon
 printed paper, Frenzy,and glued it to the form. 
 Next, I cut individual hexagons and attached to sections
of the roof with foam dots.  A sprinkling of iridescent glitter (from Art Glitter)
 gives them a bit of extra POP!


 After cutting squares of paper from the 6X6 Bundle, I added them to the walls of the 'rooms'.
I used a large wood veneer doily shape as the background and base for the clustered embellishment. A small postcard print was cut from the 6X6 bundle sheets (a larger, matching design can be found on the Mystic 12X12 paper).  A couple of stickers from the Details Sticker Sheet were included, as well as two black blooms and leaves from Petaloo!


 A canvas wired bow (from May Arts ribbon) sits perched on top and finishes off the design!

I love this house.  I'm not even sure where he resides now. 
After the Summer CHA show, he was taken home with someone new...I hope they're enjoying :)

See ya'll later!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
