Paper Sweeties July Release Party!

Hi Friends!
Today is the day to purchase those awesome new stamps/dies from Paper Sweeties...yeah! 
I'm highlighting the Firefighters stamp set once again, and Jake is in his firefighter outfit standing at the fire station ready for duty!  I wanted to make this special project for my friend's daughter, Kendra and fiancée, John.  They will be getting married next April.  John is a volunteer firefighter here in town and what a sweet couple they are!  They want to have a display at their wedding with a firefighter theme.  And, any donations to be given to the fire station.  I thought that is a fabulous idea!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that they like what I came up with!:-)
Ok, for my project, I started with a paper mache house and painted the roof black and the windows brown.  The windows were covered with acrylic.  The rest of the house was covered with brick paper.  Jake was colored with copics along with the dog and fire hydrant.  Sweet Cuts-Jake die was used to cut out Jake. The stamp set used for this project is from the stamp set Firefighters.  The sentiment was embossed and brads added.  The fire/rescue emblem is from Me &My Big Ideas.
You'll want to see more projects from the rest of the design team!  Hop along and have fun!
