Welcome to the last day of the Build-a-Gingerbread-House PS!

And did you all build some fantastic houses!!!! I was not sure how this challenge would turn out, it's always exciting and a little bit scary to try out something new. But I should have know not to be scared, lol - because you ladies are all fantastically talented! I'm stunned and lost for words when I look at the gallery - YOU ROCK!!!:))

But...it did leave me with a tiny, little problem: Your pages already look so complete, I couldn't think of much to add for today... :o... so I hope you will not be disappointed, if your last download will be a little smaller... (and if you really miss a special element... I'm only a pm away;))

Your task for today: Finish off your project - pages, houses, castles, mansions, villas, advent calendars, barns (did I forget something?) - any way you want! Add things, move things, delete things, recolor, replace, resize... do as you wish! :DD

Save your work and post it in the Christmas in July gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1399-christmas-in-july.html) and leave a link here in this thread!

Here is your link: Day 5 (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/ProgScraps/Gingerbread/Build-a-Gingerbreadhouse%20Day5.zip)

Thank you all for playing along, I hope you had as much fun as I did and enjoyed your downloads. Please, make sure you have them all as I wil be taking them down, soon.

Have a fantastic weekend, see you all around! :XX

Thanks so much for the wonder gingerbread boy & boy and smoke and all the wonderful items. Here is my final layout. I am going to print it out and glue it to a magnetic board and use a magnet with a Gingerbread button glued on top of it to count down the days.

... or you could print it a second time, but this time with pics in the windows instead of numbers (actually you just have to print the windows). Then carefully cut the windows on the "number version" on three sides and glue the "picture" version behind it - no glue on the windows, lol. That way you can open one window every day and get a little surprise (and getting it ready now will help you forget what pics you put there until Dec 1st, lol).

Here's my final. I decorated your tree and changed out the Christmas tree from yesterday and made the reindeer into a dog. Great fun! Thanks so much for this cute challenge.

Thank you so much Min for this wonderful challenge. I loved the gingerbread people in day 5. All the elements that you chose were just great. I was amazed also at the imagination of the participants and the fantastic creations.

This has been a fabulous progressive. Have to admit by step 2, I was almost ready to quit as I wasn't sure that I liked what I had started. Now I am thrilled with how it turned out. Thinking I may use it for the front of a Christmas Card. :w

Thanks for all the wonderful downloads for this fun adventure.

Wow... you gals blow me away with all your fantastic and creative ideas in making your gingerbread houses, castles, advent calenders, etc. It was fun playing along with your all.

And, Min... please tell Toiny and the crew how much fun this Christmas in July has been. Would love to do this type of event again. Thanks to all for the hard work in making this such a sucess.

Min, all of your goodies are just fabulous, and how much fun I'm having building my North Pole Village. Love this download!! Was just wondering if we might be able to have a QP and hybrid exchange if anyone else wants to do so?
Back to frosting my reindeer barn! --k

That is a great idea I think I will do like that.

... or you could print it a second time, but this time with pics in the windows instead of numbers (actually you just have to print the windows). Then carefully cut the windows on the "number version" on three sides and glue the "picture" version behind it - no glue on the windows, lol.
