They are all adorable, but I like Rita Barakat's house best. I loved the process of making this house and the end result rocks! I also think she used the products for DecoArt best.


September 18, 2015

How fun! All are terrific. The most creative and original to me seems #9, Game Night.


September 18, 2015

Since I'm given an opportunity to choose, I'll have to pick #4 as I'm partial to fairies ;-) What a cute paper mache fairy house. The structure, detail, and colors are great! Thank you for sharing!


September 18, 2015

Wow, look at all that creativeness! It was a hard choice to cast my vote! Numbers 1 and 9 were my top favorites.
