Gingerbread House Wall Hanging....

I have a little wall hanging I created to remember some sweet cookie baking memories!  The cousins got together last year to make their own gingerbread houses.  It was quite a mess, with candy falling all over the floor and frosting in every crevice.....but the memories we made were worth any mess that had been made. 
 I used my Cricut,  Lite Jolly Holidays, and the Gingerbread cartridge. 
I used Jolly Holidays to cut an extra large house to encase my photo collage.  It was cut at 8".  The roof was heavily glittered  : )
The little gingerbread people were cut at 2" and liquid applique was used for the frosting.  And once again, glitter was sprinkled on.  I added a couple of holly leaves and berries to dress up my cookies.  A pink paper straw and some lace were added to finish off the bottom of the house. 
I love to customize my pearls with any color, using Copic markers.  
Today is going to be crazy busy!  Cort has therapy after school and then we are headed to our annual cheerleading dinner/grab bag.  The girls love getting together.....especially when there are presents involved! 
I am a bit behind on crafting lately, as the holidays are fast approaching.  But I'm okay with it.  The holidays only come once a year, and I want to enjoy them. 
I'm off to school for crazy hat and sock day! 
(LOVE spirit week!) 
: )
