Happy Pig Day!

I bought some paper mache pigs a week or so ago with the intention of sending them out to friends and having them create something with them. well I changed my mind, so there! I LOVE polka dots. I don't know why, but especially vintage style polka dot patterns. Like this one from 7 Gypsies. I searched for almost an hour in my wreck of a scrap room for it!

I tore it into a million little pieces, then used some modge podge to stick the pieces down. Luke thought I was crazy! I also used a piece of SEI paper lace, kind like a little skirt. Then this morning when it was dry, I used some old Basic Grey rubons for the black flowers. Lots of little trims, some black Kaiser bling, and my very favorite My Little Scrapbox alpha stickers. (Just let me know when you all get tired of seeing them!)

The result is something that will go fabulously with the new colors I have chosen for my scrap room. My walls are tan and I have a zebra rug, so I will be using a buttery yellow a bit lighter than this pig for my other accent color. Fabulous!


I love hearing from you, so write to your little hearts content!
