My Colourwash Tree House ..... for a few challenges

Hello peeps ........

I cannot believe it is nearly four weeks since I went on the fab ArtsyCrafts Workshops with Lin and Leandra, and the wonderful Duke of Distress, Tim Holtz.  Did I say that I had the time of my life - well - I did.

I thought it was time I showed everybody my project from the class with Lin and Leandra - A colourwash tree house.  Why has it taken so long to blog this?  Well I could not decide what to do about the roof which was almost double the size, and I wasn't sure I actually liked it, so today I folded it back over the frame.  The roof is made from a new product developed by PaperArtsy, it is metal-backed card, and we were the first class to use this product.

I am entering this for the following challenge:

Saturday Challenge - Anything but a card
Sugar Creek Hollow - Anything goes
Alphabet Challenge - T is for Trees
Delicious Doodles - Dimensional project
If the Shoe Fits - Aquamarine
Little Miss Muffet - Brads, Gems or Pearls - I have breads and a Pearl
Paper Play - Embossing - My trees are embossed metal
Shelly's Images - Show us what you got
Stamp Insanity - Use something gold or metalic
Stampin' Royalty - Dry embossing - my trees
Scrap Creations - DT Call
Scrap Creations - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Heart 2 Heart - Home Decor

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
