Default Happy Villages

My friend and I decided to do a project out of Karen Eckmeier's book "Happy Villages". Neither of us had even done one before. She did the one on the cover and I picked this one and did my own thing instead of copying Karen's exact pattern.
We both had a problem at first seeing the vision but as soon as you start adding roofs, trees etc...it all came together.
I also hand painted most of the fabrics used
