I've Got My Eye On You

This week's Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World was this gorgeous photo:

The picture kind of reminds me of my house...well except the lack of toys...and dust bunnies. I knew I had to recreate the yellow door.

Besides the beautiful color of the door, something that struck me about this picture is the proximity of the table to the door. It appears that the table is blocking the door--trying to keep something out. Of course it made me think "what would be on the other side?" I think I've figured it out: 

Okay, it's supposed to be funny. The patterned papers are a mix, but I am dying over the new Stella Rose by My Mind's Eye. Definitely hubba hubba. I wanted to mix the vintage look with the graphic bunny.

The Peeps bunny is glittery, so he (she?) stands out even more than in the photo. Here's a close-up view:

Yes, I realize that the "Welcome" on the mat should be upside down if you were inside a house, but I just went with legibility over realism. {There is a pink bunny in the's not exactly a photograph!)

The doors look pretty simple, but it was rough getting those windows cut and everything lined up. Glad I didn't cut off my finger with the dull craft knife. Yowsers!

To sentiment or not to sentiment...I opted to put the sentiment inside. It's kind of creepy, but it's definitely my sense of humor.
Thanks for looking!
