November Blog Hop – Papertrey Ink

The blog hop is on November 25th but Papertrey Ink has already posted the Inspiration Photo so I could get started on it.  Wasn’t that nice of them to do that specially for me! LOL.

Here is the photo:

I decided to use the colours as the inspiration and break out my new Tiny Town Gingerbread House from Papertrey Ink.   I had been talking with Sandra about how popular things that light up are these days, so my goal was also to have this light up.  Of course, that changes the engineering of the basic box to accommodate this and that means added time.

It is far from complete as I have some grandiose ideas for a base, trees, yard and fence that may or may not come to pass.  Here is what it looks like so far:

This is a project that looks much better in real life than it does in these photos.

 

I was in a hurry and didn’t use a tripod and it is a dull gray snowy day so the lighting is poor.  The accents are in foiled cardstock which never seems to translate well in photos either.

Oh well, I am hoping for a vast improvement in both the photography and the project by the blog hop on the 25th.
