The Thinkin Spot!

Happy Spring Everyone!!!

A while back I posted a picture of some paper straws I had seen. I was intrigued by them and had to have some. My mind starting shooting in many directions! Well they came and I couldn't wait to get started, my computer was doing that scroll through all my photo's thing and I spied my grandson Danny, that mischief smile and those beautiful blue eyes. I was thinking about how he can be a wild one and then it it me a jungle themed project. I thought about the Wild Child SVG Collection and it went from there. Danny is the best one liner kids I know and funny as all get out but he can be wild too and ends up in a "thinkin" spot a lot. That is how I came up with the name for this new project.

I cut the apple from Miss Bakers Classroom kit and embossed the accents with a zebra embossing folder I had just gotten at Hobby Lobby. Then I cut leaves from the Wild Child SVG Collection and inked the edges and glued them in various places to make the trees. I had glued some of the straws in place to make the trees. I used one of my most used tools the flower shaping tools from EK Success. The elephant was made by using the small pumpkin from Pick a Pumpkin SVG kit and the legs and trunk were the stems from that kit as well. The head is the acorn from Autumn Acorn SVG Kit . I poked a hole in his behind and braided some grey embroidery floss together and stuck that through the hole then glued it shut as well. The ears were from Garden Nouveau SVG Kit and were the flat poppy petals. The eyes are just black pearls from Michaels, and thats how my Thinkin Spot Elephant is born.
