"Can ya Sell it?"

Those were the words out of my husband's mouth when he saw my completed projected.  Hi everyone, Beth here from thunderbirdlindybydesign.  Today I wanted to share with you a project I have been working on for several week's now.  This project serves many purposes.  First of all I was inspired to make it when I ran across something similar when I was perusing the Graphic 45 Blog and discovered a very talented artist by the name of Jenny Svensson.  She created a paper Mansion using Graphic 45 Steam Punk Paper.  It really struck a cord with me and I wanted to make my own.  Second, when I first saw the French Manor exclusive Circle Cartridge, I knew I needed to make furniture with it, and this was the perfect outlet for my furniture making using this cartridge, and finally 3rd, I needed to enter something for the Circle blog Monthly Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  My project needed to have cuts welded with the Gypsy, a Sun Cut(I used the Gypsy wandering cart already installed), and buttons.  This project had all 3 and many more.

I had loads of fun making this project.  It has paper printed from the Imagine covering the front, numerous cricut cuts, and it took just about all of the imagination I had.  It's about 21" tall and 24" wide.  It also took almost all of the glue I had on hand, and almost 2 full paper stacks as well as my imagine paper.  I used paper from the DCWV collection, but I can't remember the name of them.  If I could have a house in the country somewhere, this is what I would want it to look like.  Come along with me while I take you on a tour of my own "Mansion".

I hope you enjoyed the tour of my house, and to answer my husband's question, NO I can't sell, what in the world would someone do with it:)

Until next time, and thanks Sheila for once again having me as a guest.
