Icy Sleek Modern House

Part 2 in a series with the Home Made stamp set and template from Papertrey Ink!  This one was much easier than the first one...and a note:  if you are using 2-sided paper, be sure to print the template on the "wrong" side of the paper (that was my mistake on House #1).

I filled these houses with a family favorite (a dozen peanut butter balls) for Eva and Claire's teachers.  The first one was quaint and went to Claire's teacher who lives in a sleepy little country village called Bristol, NY.  This one is for Eva's teacher who lives in Rochester, so we went with a sleek urban design!  Her name is Heather, so I decided to add some "heather" purple just for her! 

Peanut Butter Ball recipe (NO COOK!):

1 jar crunchy peanut butter
1 package mini chocolate chips
2 cups confectioner's sugar
1 cup nonfat dry milk
6 tbsp. water
graham cracker crumbs

Mix first 5 ingredients in a bowl.  Roll into 2 inch balls, then roll balls through graham cracker crumbs.  Refrigerate for 1 hour, and you are ready to go!

Thanks for the recipe Kelly - they sound yummy! I look forward to trying them sometime. I think this house looks GREAT! I like the light blue color and love those punched out pine branch sections.

The house is beautiful. I love all the little details including the glitter on the roof. Very, very pretty. I know it must have been difficult to complete.
