House Party Blog Hop



So what's all the excitement about?
Well,if I've done this correctly you should be reading this after having been to Amy's blog to see her housey creation after seeing the others along the way too.
This party has been arranged by the lovely Rinda who sent out packages with houses and papers and embellies to ladies all over the world for them to alter.If any of the links are broken along the way you can go back to Rinda's blog for a complete list of all the links..
When I sat down to alter my house - Rinda's little vintagey postcard made me think of dreams you have when you are a child. I covered the house with the cardstock in the kit then stamped it with distress inks to make it look a bit textured.Then I mounted the lady onto some of the paper in the kit to use as the main focal image.
After that I used a chipboard butterfly and painted it with Perfect Pearls to embellish with.I punched some butterflies out from some of the papers and then cut some bunting out as a finishing touch. I stamped the 'believe in your dreams' wording on the roof but it wasn't very clear so I went over the word believe with a white gel pen.
A quick wave and *hello * to all the other blog hoppy ladies who have taken part.
So now, I will link back to the lady who organised the whole thing - Rinda - who kindly sent all the houses together with papers and embellishments to all of us so we could play and alter our houses.
I really enjoyed doing this and hope we can do another one soon - a BIG  thank you Rinda.

P.S....just editing this to apologise as my ***scheduled*** post for 06.00 am this morning is still sitting in the scheduled drafts - please forgive me ladies,I really really thought it would work,anyone any ideas why? is there a time setting within blogger that's different to the computer's ?So sorry once again ....

I love what you've done with your wee house!
Try clicking on Post Options at the bottom of the post box and then editing the date and time for a scheduled post. HTH, seems to work for me.

Cheryl said...

Love how you have interpreted that little vintage picture into such a lovely house!
Not sure about the scheduled bit not kicking in, did you save it as an actual post or just a draft? I shall have to come round and sort you out!

Love your house...such a great vintage feel to it.
With scheduling you need to put in your schedule time before you write the post...and need to publish it rather than save.

Kirsti said...

Thot I had missed you but you were the only one that hadn't posted when I blopped this morning...

Your wee hoosie is gorgeous and I so love the bunting - it is such a fun embellishment:)..

Denise,
Sorry you were a bit late to the party, but your creation was oh so worth waiting for! I love the monochromatic color scheme - makes it oh so vintage and homey. The bunting and butterflies on two different scales are fantastic! Glad you sorted out the posting and arrived safely. Now have a drink and enjoy the party day. Thanks for coming along,
