Sometimes decorating makes you CRACK!

I know, I am hoping that you still love me and will still come and visit.
Life just kind of overcame me and so this, my blogging, took a back seat.

I did do some creating on my time off.
Not much, but a little bit is better than nothing!  Right?
pretend that it's brown-you know the paper mache brown, plain letter.

My cutest neice-turned one and I wanted to rock the boat. You know give her something besides an elmo toy.
So, I did a letter.
Her room is in pink and navy-so cute! (it's not quite finished yet-but I have a vision) I will post it when my sister gets all the fabulosness done.
I wanted to crackle the letter.
It coudlnt' be that hard right?
Wrong. (sorry, I know the pic is crooked-just turn your head :)
This is what it looked like after the crackle and some white paint over it.
I hated it! I hated it so much I did exactly opposite of what the bottle said to do.
It said-don't do another coat of crackle, once you have already done one. 
WHATEVER!
I did another coat of crackle and then painted some light pink over the 2nd coat of crackle.  I still didn't like it.
I know, I am a freak!
I inked the edges and FINALLY, I liked it.
so, what do you think? I know, it's on a green wall-what about the navy? I will get to it-later.
When the room gets done....soon.
Maybe.....

I am linking up to all these fabulous people. 
Go and check it out.
We all need some inspiration
Right?
