Default WT312 seeing SPOTS (3/3/11)

Hello everyone

The Challenge.
POLKA DOTS

Details.
Use polka dots anywhere on your project. Search through your stash for polka dotted DP/patterned paper, stamps and embellishments

Tips. (suggestions)
1. Challenge yourself to use polka dots only
2. use punches to make your own polka dots
3. use a polka dot background/pattern stamp
4. do you have any polka dotted ribbon on hand?

Please remember to put WT312 in your keywords section and post a link back here so that we can all see your beautiful creations. Feel free to create as many projects as you wish but keep in mind that this is not a contest. Use this challenge as inspiration and hopefully you see your creativity flourish. You can combine this challenge with another

My sample: We Must Ketchup

WT312 Gallery Submissions: HERE

I will do my very best to comment on each and every project but there may be times that I simply will not be able to.

Thank you so much for playing along.

I hope you have fun creating!
Kim

Fun challenge, Kim....took some thinking and some restraint not to grab a solid piece of paper. I do have a few solid pieces.....I confess. Thanks for a fun way to start a Thursday!
