Mini Greenleaf Spring Fling 2012 & Spring Fling 2013

All the participants in Greenleaf's Spring Fling 2012 received an adorable mini spring fling kit.  I decided to build a tiny replica of my Spring Fling project (minus the sun room):

It took so much less time than the original!

A reminder of Snow's Getaway....

And of course I couldn't resist entering the 2013 contest.  The kit brings up lots of fun ideas.  I'm going with the simple base building.  Not in it to win it, I just like having the deadline (Halloween this year) and the small size of the kits.   The best part is seeing how everyone interprets the kits...

The Laurel for Auction

I have been doing a little mini work over the last few months.  I've been wanting to do a house for my kid's school silent auction for the last couple of years and I finally got around to it.  

This is Greenleaf's Laurel.  I bought it right at the beginning of my mini making before I realized all the gems that could be found on craiglist etc.  

I worked on it literally until it was to be delivered to the function space.  It arrived with tape still holding the last bits of glued pieces.  I didn't even get a chance to take good photos of the house which is too bad.  But here are a couple I took with my phone in bad lighting...
