A Fun Family Photo Project

I've been wanting to get this project done for a few weeks now and last weekend we got some good pictures to go along with it. I saw this little wooden house wall hanging at Michael's in the clearance bin and immeditately thought of the Jenni Bowlin HOME Bingo card. This little project was so fun and came together quickly (as all exciting projects do when the mojo is flowing!).
First I painted the edges of the wood with brown paint. Then I used Mod Podge to adhere the Jenni Bowlin print paper for the roof, sanded and inked the edges, then added another coat of Mod Podge over it to seal the edges. More Mod Podge adhered the Bingo card.
I printed out 4 small index sized photos and matted them with a bracket shaped paper that I cut out using the Noteworthy design card for the Slice (LOVE that card!). I used some of the small Basic Grey Eva buttons for little embellishments and adhered them with Glue Dots. I added a Chatterbox chipboard butterfly embellie over the star- I liked the extra touch of green it added to go with the green in the photos.
I used a few short quotes about family & home, then distressed & inked the edges and adhered them. The house originally had wooden beads on either side of the roof on the string, but I took those off and added a few short pieces of ribbon instead. I'm really happy with how this turned out! Thanks for taking a peek!
