Princess bank

Thanks for stopping by today.  I spent part of my day with a family emergency.  I learned that my favorite uncle (and the one I am closest to) had a heart attack last night.  He is still in the hospital, was having more chest pains this morning, but if all goes well, will be home in a few days.  He is getting some tests done and some other technical stuff (terms I can't remember) over the next few days.  He was always there for us to talk to when my Mother was in the hospital just before and after she passed away. He tried to make the situation easier, visit us, stay with us if that's what we needed - just being there to talk to.  He always was available for that.  And still is.  I'm not a religious person, but my friends and family, please say a prayer for him that he gets through all this and is stronger.  He despises (spelling?) hospitals so it is really tough for him. 

I want to share an altered project that I did for a birthday present for my daughters' friend.  Her favorite color is purple. (sorry it is a little blurry)
I got this piggy bank last year at M's.  Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but decided to alter it with DSP for a birthday gift. 
I tried to color the image with my Copics.  Not as good as I hoped since I'm still learning the shading technique:)
I used Modge Podge to adhere the DSP that I had in my stash to the entire piggy bank except the bottom front panel where I put her name and the very top points of the crown where I stuck rhinestones. 
If you look closely, you can see the slit on the top centre where you drop the coins in.
All in all, I like it.  She liked it too.  I have another one to do now for my daughter, but she doesn't know. Just have to find the perfect DSP.  Her room is Kiwi green, turquoise with pinks and purples. At least I have lots of colors to choose from:)
Thanks for dropping by.  I really appreciate it.
