piggy paint

As seen in Creating Keepsakes magazine.
There's nothing like some quality girl talk and finger nail painting. Avery always reaches for the brightest colors-her favorite is "flirt alert." Which I hope isn't an indication of what to expect in the highly anticipated teen years.

Thanks to Kerri, one of my blog readers, sent me a link to Piggy Paint. (An all natural nail polish.) I'm excited to check it out...

One of my fave lines from Sassafras: patterned paper, cloud trim
Making Memories: Puffy Alphas
I want to get this awesome circle cutter
PS Guess what? Out of the 10 boxes sent out for Shades of Summer 1 box found it's way home. yay! I'll share pics soon. (if you have one sitting around-keep it going)
Stay tuned for details about the second round of Shades of Summer-it's gonna be fun!

Emily said...

Piggy paint, how exciting! Thanks for the tip!

Alice Maureaux said...

Thats so cool that they are starting to make their way home! I had the box pretty close to the beginning of last summer! I was excited to get it and I put in a pic of my daughter because she is waaay cuter than me!! :-)

MandieGirl said...

I was just thinking about the shades of summer and wondering if they would ever reach me! ;) Can't wait to see photos!

Stacey said...

Your piggy paint link isn't working. It needs to have the www.blogger.com removed from the front of it.

Anyways, thanks for the link, I'm buying some right now for my one year old daughter.

I never got my shades of summer box, maybe this summer.

ARob said...

I never got my shades this past year. Hope that means I'll be at the top of the list this year? Can't wait to see pics of what you got back?!

Christen Krumm said...

I can't wait for the shades of summer this time around! I never did get any last year :) hehe...

This is going to be funfunfun!!!

Painting nails is magical in our house. The thought of it has as much power as Santa Clause. I love it. Today, my Avery headed off to preschool with bright yellow nails and toes. She couldn't wait to show her teacher.

RobandAmy'sMom said...

So Cute! I can't wait to start painting my little one's toes! Thanks for sharing the info on the Piggy Paint!

Amanda said...

Oh, I hope the SOS box makes its way here...I know you worked extra hard getting them all put together post new baby...so thanks!!!! And, hopefully those who played along will forward the love! Love the layout.

Amy said...

This is such a darling layout! Totally gonna have to scraplift this baby!! (Of course I had already seen it in CK... but love seeing it big onscreen!!)
She is such a doll! And yes, I am sure that the name of that polish is totally an indication of what is to come!! Collin can join my husband on the bandwagon of "she's not dating until she's 30!" {wink !}

Kathy said...

Ahhh Shades of Summer. I've been wondering what ever happened to all those photos. I hope you get the other ten back. I know that I was the third person to receive my box and I won't lie, it took me a little longer than 2 days to send it back....I think it was a week and a half but I got it out there. :) I can't wait to see the update.

Karmele said...

Love this layout!!Fantastic!!

Julie said...

loved the layout in CK and love it even more here but i have a question. how do you put it in your album since the circles hang off the edge?

debevans said...

I have NEVER painted my little Emily's nails before (she's 2) and am going to check out Piggy Paint and also will have to paint her nails and do a layout soon (great idea!!) Love your layout!

I didn't get to be a part of the Shades of Summer and would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be in the second round!!!

Mindy said...

Hmmm.. wonder if it was MY box... that seems like forever ago!!

elizabeth said...

thanks everyone! ♥

Julie, I actually cut the base so that with the elements hanging off the edges it still is 12"x12" that way it will fit into her album.
thanks

Hayley said...

Are you starting a new list for SOS? Or are you using the list from last year? I never got the shades. :(

joscelyne cutchens said...

wow, i forgot all about that shades of summer thing, none ever showed up at my house. i wonder what happened to the others?

Karen said...

i can't believe only one made it back...that is so sad. Hope it is the one I am in. Please include me in round 2. It was fun!

Lisa V. said...

I love this layout. The first thing my eyes are drawn to are Avery's beautiful eyes!

Christine said...

I have the EK Success circle cutter and highly recommend it. It is fab!! The only suggestion to to "tack" your paper to the glass mat before cutting your circle. Love all your layouts!! Keep them coming AND happy belated birthday.

Stacey said...

I think I made it on the first list of SOS too, but never got it so I guess I'll still be on the lookout for them...I'm excited!

Thanks - Stacey

Cherie said...

Oh my goodness i would love to do the shades of summer! Can't wait for more details. This is one of my favorite layouts you have ever shared!

Fabiana said...

My little girl also loves to paint her finger nails... well, never met one that doesn't!
Thanks for sharing Piggy Paint!

EmmaJ said...

I loved seeing all the creative pictures in the Shades of Summer 2008 adventure! Can't wait to see 2009

Dionne said...

Oh how cute. I love painting nails with my niece.

lovely layout!

Myra said...

Beautiful work! Great inspiration!

meganklauer said...

What a great page! Love the circles and the design!

Amber said...

Oh no!! I'm so sad that only one box made it home!!

Tiffany said...

You will LOVE Piggy Paint! My daughter loves having her nails painted and I grabbed these and I feel so much better putting them on her little fingers and toes. Seriously..enjoy!!!!

Reina said...

I love this layout it is so cute! I was sad I never got a box for the shades last year maybe I'll get one this year:)

Jamie said...

At the risk that Collin may hunt me down...I just bought some Piggy Paint for my 3-yr-old. One of their kits is 15% off BUT the really great part is that I found a 20% off total order coupon. I ordered the sale kit and another bottle of polish, and with the 20% off coupon, the total came to $25.99. They offer FREE shipping for orders over $25! The coupon code is bbargains20 (good through 5/31). ENJOY!!! Love the layout!

Dawnie said...

You are just so darn talented!

{Erica} said...

You're one seriously talented lady!

can't wait for more details on the shades of summer...SIGN ME UP!!!

Beth Perry said...

gorgeous layout!!

Cassie said...

I can relate to this layout, especially this week. My daughter is going nail polish crazy this week. I let her go through my box and she picked out the brightest pinks and reds she could find. She's been carrying around a pink girly box of all nail polish, files, and nail art stickers with her everywhere this week.

Michelle Vandepol said...

still wondering what you landed up putting in the cute bags for mother's day

Laci J said...

Just a thought, if you do anything like shades of summer again I think they should be sent north first while its still summer, then head south where its summer longer. I liked the idea though!

Elisa said...

I love it!!! it´s so cute your daughter looking for the colour she likes :)

I have a question, how do you get the pictures so small round?
thanks
