Yellow Takes Over the Neighborhood

The New Orleans House Project, aka Happy Scrappy Houses, came out to play this week.  As I made house blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge several years ago, I tried to share a New Orleans house in a matching color.  It was fun searching for just the right house to inspire or match my weekly RSC house block.  

Now my weekly RSC project is to go back and add RSC-colored wonky borders to each house.  This week, several houses joined the yellow neighborhood.
I'm happy to report the wonky borders used up a lot of yellow chunks from the scrap stash.


I miss sharing pictures of New Orleans houses each week, but my job doesn't have me driving around the city as much as a few years ago.  If you're interested in seeing more New Orleans houses, check out the following Instagram folks for lots of great photos from the Crescent City!

  11. That's such a clever way to add the yellow and get those scraps used. Are these the Newo Orleans houses or the others. Whatever, they are sooo cute.
