Simon Says: Home Sweet Home

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Home Sweet Home 
There are so many ways to interpret this challenge we will be looking forward to seeing what you create!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please don't forget to pop by the lovely Dr Sonia's Blog, Sonia has made another fabulous creation for the challenge and it would be lovely if you could pop by and leave her a nice comment too :-) Sonia lives in India, in Kerala, which is the inspiration for my project! 

We went to India last September for a vacation and stayed in a beach bungalow in Kerala for a few days, there were lots of palm trees and long stretches of empty beaches! It was amazing! There were millions of tiny sea shells, a perfect size for crafting I thought, so I collected a few to bring home with me! 

I used a Tim Holtz Village Dwelling and Surf Shack to create my little beach hut!

I first made the house base with strong card stock and then used watercolor paper to create the walls. I used a woodgrain stamp and then drew the lines to make them look like wooden planks. 

For the roof I used an embossing folder to make it loom like wooden strips. 

and this is the beach! miles and miles of sandy beaches and the only people we saw were fishermen!
happy memories ;-)

Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

This is awesome, Lols. It reminds me of our summer vacation on the beaches of Cayucos in California. Some of my favorite summers were spent there. I love all the details you put into the beach house, it's perfect!

This is such a stand-out piece! It makes me long for the beach and I love how you incorporated your own seashells and a picture of the beach to tie it in to your own beach story. I love the colors that you used which are happy and totally summer-worthy. You did an amazing job!
