I know I know I've taken an absolutely age (and a half) to get this posted.  There was a reason honest, firstly was the dilemma over which way some of the pieces went (I kid you not), one piece in particular worked well two different ways, we were confused, anyway eventually I decided that as it was my Exquisite Corpse then I would have it the way I wanted (despite protestations from said hubby and said 12 year old at the time).

Then was the 'how to frame it dilemma' which caused weeks and weeks of soul searching as I really did want to show it off to it's fullest, so here we are with a final unveiling!

Fanfare please...

The roof section is Pam's, the next section down with the bright Gothic window is Katie's piece, the next piece down is Rebecca's and the bottom floor was mine,

And the reason why we've taken so long is that I didn't want the beautiful stained glass elements to be lost, so look what hubby did for me!!!
And this is how it works, an open doored frame which was originally a pin board, with mirror card and led lights.
Up close detail, the ground floor
 The stained glass windows that Rebecca had done, and all that checker board, so much detail (lights off on this bit)

 Lights on to show you the detail of the stained glass

 And the little tiny dots along the top of the spikes, so much work!
And Katie's fabulous brick work, again so much detail!

 Pam's cobwebby roof space

Thank to everyone who contributed and I hope you'll forgive me for taking a while to blog it but I'm sure you'll agree it was worth it!
