Countdown to Christmas: Gingerbread House

This month's issue of Paper Crafters Sampler has a cute template called Ghoulish Hangout.  I grabbed this template to create my version, a gingerbread house.  Why would you want a boring, straight-walled house when you can have a cute trapezoid house?  Well I don't know!  It is the perfect size to embellish with the images from the set Scentsational Season.

Once I started, boy did this get my daughter's imagination running!  She started making her own little wrapped gifts out of paper and gingerbread girl for the inside of the house.

I was suffering through some math which was painful at the end of a long day, so I was pretty proud of how my chimney came out!  The gingerbread man is dressed up with baker's twine (I'm told by Little Missy it's a bow tie) and Dazzling Details buttons.

A good dollop of chunky glitter on the roof, trees, and along the bottom edge of the house for a real winter feeling.
