Our Dream Home! A Labour Of Love Or Divorce?






Once again Fantabulous Cricut Has another great challenge this week. It is challenge #26 and you are to create a project that has something to do with work, a job, labour or something like that.
So my project I decided to do a layout of when we first purchased our new Dream Home. I was out for a walk one day with are dog and I noticed some new show homes had gone up over the winter. So of course I just had to stop in and have a look. Well I just fell in love with the Huntington 2 and ran home to tell hubby all about it. He thought I was totally nuts, we had just paid off the one we were in and finally mortgage free, but being the good guy he is. He did say we could go and have a look. Well after a lot of sad faces and tears I finally broke him down and we signed the purchase of agreement papers.
Now the reason I say this was labour is because it was just that, picking the paint colours, tiles, brick etc... was hair raising. Man he peed me off more than once, it was my dream house and I wanted it my way or no way. You have to understand my mom was dying and I was just so depressed, there was no making me happy. Anyway we made it through without getting a divorce and we both just love the house!
So for this project I used Everyday Dress Up Dolls for all the cuts. I found the cutest little tools and brads that looked like screws, that I had forgotten I even had, in my wonderful stash of goodies.
Hope you enjoy my project.
