Polka Dot Picket Fence

You know all of those beautiful picket fences out there?

Gorgeous.  Lovely.  Simply ADORE them.

HAD to have one.  But I wanted to do something a little different.

So I got my creative juices flowing and came up with something I think is kinda fun
and different. 

POLKA DOTS.  Lots of them.

Have you ever seen those way cool dot painters from Martha Stewart? {At least that's what I call them}

I got some and had a blast with 'em.  They are SO easy-peasy it's not even legal.
Who knew that you could actually paint polka dots without too much hassle?

I'm sure I'm WAY behind as usual, but they are new to me, so I guess I feel it's worth the excitement. Ha!

I hope you like what I came up with as much as I do. 

(I used my favorite color scheme as always. {grin})

All I did was paint the fence a bright turquoise color...and then painted red polka dots randomly on it.


Then I painted some chipboard letters with off white paint and glued them onto the fence.  



To finish it off, I added a cute little banner with hearts that I made with my 
silhouette and tied it on with baker's twine.



Easy and fun and exciting!!  









Ally kept trying to sneak into my pictures, so I finally had her pose with my fence!



Linking up with these parties as always
