Solitary Confinement...

Hanging Kitchen Plaque
I altered a $1 plaque from the Dollar Tree to make this sign for my kitchen.  
Figured a good laugh would give me the motivation to keep scrubbing.
I'm kidding, the rule in our house is whoever cooks, those that didn't, clean.  
But it will give the one stuck with KP duty a little chuckle.

I've made this for our new challenge at
which is...
So graciously sponsored by the following stores.

This is the last challenge for 2011. 
 We have some 
new changes 
going on over at 
Beginning January 3rd, all challenges will run for 
2 WEEKS!!!
This has been a wonderful year helping DT with these very talented and funny ladies and I can't wait to see what 2012 holds!!

Ok, back to my project. :)
Here is the 
backside of the plaque
Meet Crabby Cathy
You can find her image and the sentiment here at Bugaboo Digi Stamps.
The bg papers are from Stampin' Up! Domestic Goddess paper pack.
The utensils are internet images as well as the dishtowel.  
Crabby Cathy is colored in copics.

Hope you enjoy my altered kitchen art plaque and are inspired to show us your creative and wonderful 

So glad  you came by for a visit.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping....

Love this altered project and such a perfect sign for the kitchen!
I've found that the quickest way to end sisterly love quarrels is to suggest that they do dishes together. Suddenly, they are the best of friends and have some other important task that needs their attention. Of course, the dishes are still waiting for them later! They prefer to 'take turns' instead of working together...
