The Lion House

I'm really enjoying making row houses for a swap in which I'm involved. I wrote about the swap in this post. Each person sent a bag full of materials, and I was responsible for creating a house.  This baggie included the green paper, brown paper, striped paper, rust paper, swirl, "L" plaque, flowers, brads and ribbon.  The only things I added from my own stash were the lion image and the green/black patterned paper.  The baggie also had 3 other patterned papers, some colored washers, more flowers, more brads and blue paper!  It was a bit of a challenge to edit and then decide what to add, but I really enjoyed it.  I hope the recipient likes it!

This is such a fabulous project. Does the same person get all your houses? What a collection if they do!
