eTeam Picks Challenge & Friends with Flair . . .

 Hello everyone, I am soooo excited to be hosting the eTeam Picks Challenge this month.
The theme that I have chosen is . . . 
It can be anything from your craft stash to tin cans, book pages, paper bags . . . the list just goes on and on.
All I ask is that you have a blast, create and let your imagination run wild!

You can find out all the details over on 
eclectic Paperie
with a list of all the materials used and links.
  Sooooo what have I made?
Well the lovely owner of the eP Store Kim is opening a brick and mortar store . . . woohooohooo . . . I am so excited and wish I stayed closer, I would never be away, lol!
So with this in mind, I remembered I had a huuuge chunk of wood 
{ 2ft tall }
 that I had picked up from the allotment over the summer that was drying out.
Why I hear you cry . . . because when I look at it, it reminded me of a tall house with a wonky tonky roof and I haaaaad to have it.
Being on the eclectic Paperie Team inspires me and pushes me to let my imagination go wild and this wonky tonky house is my take on Kim`s FABULOUS shop full of wonder and inspiration!
. . . my recycled roof from pretty packaging
. . . cardboard windows
. . . recycled stash
. . . the sentiments on the windows are Unity Stamp Co. Stamps and all recycled from an old project.
This hunk of wood is so mahoooosive that it was really hard to photograph!!

I have been unwell this week and been unable to head out to the shed to add . . .
a Tim Holtz Mini light up lantern, another window or two, a little fairy door for the wee folk, scraps of papers . . .but it will have to wait another day or so till I am feeling better but I will be back updating this post I promise.

Be sure and hop on over to
eclectic Paperie

 how I put this all together
my very talented teamies will be linking up there creations for even more inspiration.

UPDATING - to join in with my sweet Friends with Flair over on the Unity Stamp Co. blog.
