There's no place like home...

As we are about to leave for our summer vacation, I just finished up this altered 7 Gypsies Tray of our home...there's no place like it!  :)

I wanted to incorporate some American Crafts Abode stamps that I have, and the stamp sets are what actually gave me the ideas for this tray.  Each section of the tray started to become a little "room", just like in a doll house. 


Everything is stamped and then heat embossed with American Crafts Zing powders. All the stamps came from the AC Abode line.


The papers are from the AC Metropolitan line, and I just love this color scheme of the blue, red, beige and black. The chandlier piece is from a Teresa Collins paper.  I added some black stickle to make the glass beads sparkle!



My favorite part about this has got to be the little outlet I made for the vacuum plug.  I used some black wire and attached it to the vacuum, and then I just drew a little outlet on a piece of white scrap paper.  I used some puffy fabric paint to make the plug and stuck the wire into it so it would stay.



This is going to be hanging in our front entry-way, so you can see a closer peek when you stop by!  :)  TFL!
