Lawnscaping guest designer!

Happy Monday, all!

I'm so thrilled to be guest designing for the lawnscaping challenge today!

The fabulous sponsor is... Lawn Fawn!

And here is what I created:

I had so much fun making my little scene!  I started out by stamping the frame (from "fanciful frames") onto a piece of white cardstock, and masked around the edged to be able to stamp the log + hedgehog (from "critters in the forest") and the mushroom house (from "gnome sweet gnome") without bleeding out of the picture frame. Once all the elements were colored in, I stamped a wood-grain pattern, distressed the frame and then cut it out.  The patterned paper behind the frame is meant to look like wallpaper... crazy wallpaper :)  

Maybe they have wallpaper like that at gnomie hotels and he's just seen that painting that made him smile for his home... hee hee.

And the props?  They are there to prove how much I love gnomes... my daughter's 1st birthday party was wood-land themed... the sugar gnomes were cake-toppers!  And I'll use any excuse to whip up a batch of cupcakes... these were banana-flavored, with a honey-cinnamon frosting... yum!

Hope you play along with the build-a-scene lawnscaping challenge!
