G45 Bohemian Bazaar ATC House

I've heard that when you are having a home built that it is guaranteed to take forever!  It took me forever to build my ATC house.  I was inspired by Mary Jane Chadbourne.  She was offering an ATC house class, but I didn't have the extra money for a class at the time.  We just returned from vacation!  

But I needed a place to store my ATCs.  We have been trading ATCs over at Scraps of Darkness/Elegance (depending on what side of the house you live on).  And I had just received my July kit,  Gypsy Summer.  The kit was filled with Graphic 45's Bohemian Bazaar papers.  

I built my house from scratch.  I did not follow any one's "house plans."  All mistakes are my own and I take full responsibility for them.

I began with an utility knife, heavy chipboard and a hot glue gun.

I had to modify things as I went along, but this was the basic design.  It's pretty long, but I plan on collecting many, MANY ATCs.

I don't remember when I started this project.  I'm not sure how many hours I have put into my ATC house.  I'm sure that I worked on this for a week straight and I am a SAHM.  

Here's the outcome:

Thanks for taking a look.  I'd appreciate any comments!
