Heart 2 Heart Challenges Blog: From Your Heart To Ours "Home Decor"

Click on the pictures for a larger view!!!
Hi Everyone!
This week at H2H we are creating "Home Decor" pieces.  This is one of my favorite challenges because I love to make things for the home with Close To My Heart products that are useful.  I'm a minimalist at heart and believe that the less clutter around the house... means less things to clean.  LOL!
So when I create things for my home, they pretty much have to be very useful like this FABULOUS and functional cork board for my son Nathan's room. 
For this project I used the "Lucky" Level 2 paper packet from CTMH and the matching embellishments.  This happened to be my son's favorite paper packet, so I surprised him with this board.  
I didn't want to use thumbtacks (just because I don't want the paper to get ruined and I don't want Nathan to get hurt) so I made matching photo mats for his pictures.  The corner stamped images serve at the perfect holders, you simply tuck the pictures in the corners for a perfect fit.
The board has a lot of detail without having too many 3D pieces.
  For this "In-box" I used the "Storage Solutions by Thicker" 
I purchased mine at Paper Tales in Point Loma, however, you can find them on the web.  The link above for for "", but I found them on Ebay, Amazon, and more.
 I cut the organizer to 6" and decorated it, I think that's my favorite part of the board.  Now Nathan has a place to put his tests, notes and weekly paper work from his teacher.
So now please take a moment to check out what the other DT's created for the challenge.
I hope that you are now inspired to create your very own "Home Decor" creation and share it with us at H2H!
