"In this House"...Wall Art

I wanted to share my new Wall Art from the Silhouette Online Store.
I have been wanting to vinyl my kitchen wall with this phrase for a year now and never found the right font I wanted.  One day I was checking the SOS for something else and found it!  I was so excited and it was perfect. 

The frames are painted antique white to match my other cabinets, and then I used the same brown tint  gloss to give a more distressed - shabby chic look.  My cabinets have the same feel to them.
The main frame is supposed to be crooked and the silly photos are supposed to symbolize how 'imperfect' our family is  and how true this phrase is in our family.
Thanks for stopping by.
I am also entering this creation in this weeks Silhouette  Challenge.  Stop by and see all the cool projects using a word or phrase from the online store.

"Yappy Birthday" -Guest Designer Day with Pinque Peacock

Happy Monday everyone!  Today I am blessed to be a Guest Designer for my friend Jessica with Pinque Peacock.  She has a wonderful blog and a great shop you can find all homemade flowers,  beaded pins, fabric buttons and so much more.  You really need to stop in and check her out.  She is affordable and her products are not like anyone else's.

When I was shopping around at her store I saw these puppy paw fabric buttons and I knew I wanted to get them for a birthday card I was going to be making for a birthday. 
I chose to get the buttons with a flat back because I knew I wanted to out it on a card.   My inspiration for the card came from my cousin's volunteer service to Lab's and from a card I saw on Pinterest.

The Lab's are from the Pet Shop Cricut Cartridge, the Base paper is from Imaginisce, and the doggy paw paper is from  We R Memory Keepers-Friends Furever.   I did use my Cuttlebug to emboss the blue Tim Holtz paper for a more rugged look.  I stamped the sentiment with Robyn's, My Pink Stamper's - Biggie Puns.  I actually decided to not use the whole verse on the stamp, so I just inked the portions I needed for the card.  I did use CTMH's Burlap ribbon for added texture and Tim Holtz's vintage ink for distressing the sides, my die cut Lab's and for the sentiment stamping.
