It's Design Team Day @ "Inking It Up Crazy"

Hello Friends,
It's Design Team Day over at "Inking It Up Crazy". We were asked to do a "Home Decor" project. I must admit that I had a little struggle with this one. I knew what I wanted to do in my head, but when it came to execution, well... let's just say I had "Designer's Block". I was stuck, stumped, stiff... I knew it needed something else but I couldn't figure out what. Luckily with the help and inspiration of others and sleeping on it over night. I got up with an Ahh Haaa moment. We've all had these I'm sure. Anyhew what you see below is my much better designed "Home Decor" project. I won't dare show you my before and after pictures that would awful. I might even loose a follower or two if I I do know now that I need to do more crafting Home Decor projects... for some reason I've lost a little mojo in that area. I created this project for our family home. I love the Fall Season and all the colors it has to offer. I love decorating our house in those colors too. It makes everything feel nice & cozy. The project is going to be our Family Frame Picture. I'm going to frame it and put it on the wall with our Family Wall Photos. It will blend nicely because there are different colored frames on the wall that all blend with this "Family Frame". I absolutely LOVE IT! and I hope you do too.
The inspiration behind this idea came from a very talented lady in her own right, that I'm sure most of you all know. Tammy Skinner over at "Creative Crittersz". Check out her video on the Home Decor project she did.
Don't forget to Check Out the Design Team over at Inking It Up Crazy to see what the rest of they came up with. You're sure to be impressed. Don't forget to leave them some Love Comments. Enjoy your day. Smooches...

    Sometimes we all have those projects where we go -- "what was I thinking??" lol. This turned out really nicely though. I want to do more home decor projects as well; this is a wonderful inspiration.

  4. It was very hard for me to come up with my home decor project too. I love doing home decor projects now. This challenge was my first one. I love the fall colors, and you're right, it does make everything feel nice and cozy.
