Home Sweet Home-SOUS challenge


It's been a super hectic week here and I'm just now getting around to the SOUS challenge from Feb. 12. We spent last Friday night preparing for Evan's birthday party, which he FINALLY got to have...after rescheduling it twice because of stomach flu. Then his party was on Saturday and was just so much fun. He had a Candy Land theme and it was just the best. My parents had some water damage from a leaking ice maker hose and called DH to come help them tear up their brand new laminate floor that they had put in just 2 weeks ago. Then we got socked with yet another snow storm and the boys missed Monday and Tuesday from school and it was on a delay yesterday!! We are now out of snow days for the year. I've been helping out with being over at my parent's house while the construction guys are there repairing their kitchen while they are at work. I took this LO over with me today to get some work done. I worked pretty well considering all the hammering that was going on in the next room. OK, enough about my crazy week. On to the LO!!! I based this on the SOUS challenge from last Friday. I used my Cricut on all the cuts. The title is Storybook, gingerbread boy and girl are from Paper Doll Dress Up, and the gingerbread snowflake is from When It's Cold Outside. I inked the gingerbread boy and girl and added ribbons to them. I put my snowflake on a giant flower from Hobby Lobby and added a green bow and the little gingerbread house charm is from Oriental Trading and I attached it with a safety pin. I heat embossed the snowflake with white glitter. All paper is from last years Martha Stewart Christmas stack. The scan of the LO didn't turn out the best because of the thickness of the flower, snowflake, bow, and charm combo.
