Here is this week's design team inspiration:

Here's a fun, multi-photo layout about my son's first Easter! 

For my project, I decided to make a welcome home card. The black house is a Silhouette shape, but everything else is cut by hand.

Even though the temps are still in the 90's here in Florida, I felt that I needed a new wreath for my front door.  So I decided to create some "home decor" for this week's challenge.  I fussy cut the scarecrow and pumpkin from Bella Blvd's fall collection from last year.  The scarecrow kept wanting to flop over so I glued a craft stick onto the back of him.  I made the banner with a combination of Thickers and the silk flowers, grapevine wreath and ribbon were all recycled from last year's fall wreath.

For this week's challenge I chose to do a home decor! I have had this "tray frame" in my scraproom for almost a year now, and didn't get to scrap any Halloween pictures of my daughter's first Halloween yet since she was 2 months old at that time and I was not scrapping yet ;-) so this was the perfect opportunity to alter this frame and put in some of her first Halloween photo's! I had a lot of fun with it!

I really enjoyed making this canvas for this weeks Home project. This canvas has been made using lots of layers of papers and small touches of paint and pen. The canvas is 12x16", and the entire background is covered with ripped layers of papers. Above this I have used small amounts of paint, mists and tissue paper to add texture. The house has been made purely from paper, using basic shapes to layer up and create the house. I am really pleased with it, I have wanted to create it for quite some time. :)

I made this sappy little card for my hubby when he goes on a business trip. I used papers from Basic Grey's "Sweet Threads". Lately, I'm addicted to 6x6 pads! :)
