Heart 2 Heart and Papertake Weekly both had challenges this week to "Celebrate New Beginnings."  What better new beginning than a young couple buying their first house.  We were able to visit them for the first time last weekend, and this is the housewarming present I made.  My son had visited them several weeks ago, so I had him "scout" the decor for the colors that would work on the project - and everything fit right in!


Products used (all Close to my Heart):
5 X 7 hinged display tray (Z1838)
Huntington paper pack (X7174B)
Home Sweet Home stamp set (retired)
Chairs to You stamp set (retired)
Artisan Durable Studs (Z1816)
Mocha Pearls (retired)
Brocade Assortment (retired)
Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge (Z1686)
Black embossing powder (retired)

Thanks for stopping by - and Happy New Year to all of you!
