Altered Wooden House

Hi crafters,  Jim the Gentleman Crafter and I have a couple of DT projects on the Graphic 45 blog today (27th June 2012). Jim's designed a truly amazing lighthouse and I've altered a wooden house with loads of fussy cut elements.  Both of us used papers from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection that's full of vintage designs and images, the sorts of things you'd find covered in dust and tucked away at the back of musty antique shops :-) Here's a sneak peek of how my project came together.
