Time Out #22 Reminder - Home Sweet Home

Have you seen the current Time Out Challenge?  This is the beginning of the second week, so you still have time to play.

This is the photo we are using for our Home Sweet Home photo inspiration challenge.
Say Hello: Perk up your home with a friendly welcome sign. For an added boost, choose a bright, funky color. Source: Instagram user decorame

I went a little literal with the photo.  I stamped the couch and pillows on pattern papers and fussy cut them out and added the pillows to the couch.  The "wallpaper" was stamped as was the rug.  I stamped the "hello" like in the photo and added the sentiment on the bottom.  The background was embossed with a woodgrain impression plate.  I added a panel of decorative paper that matches on of the pillows.
 
You can see more inspiration on the Time Out Challenge blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!
