Garden of Beaden Challenge

This piece all came together after 3 try's......It begin by cleaning off my desk at work and found the little pig in the back behind my computer. The lady who sat there before me was a big pig collector.. so when I found this little pig I new exactly what I was going to do. Took me 3 times to get it right. Should I add there's a funny side to this story? OK, I will!!!! First time I didn't like it so I cut it all up. Oh well I said I'll just do it over.....well 2nd time around was not working out so good for me either. The moisture inside was messing everything up, so my friend (no names mentioned as to protect the innocent) said he could drill the back to let the moisture out. Good idea? oops, NOT a good idea. The drill caught everything and sent it spinning all around. What could you do but laugh? And I did! Ok so 3 times is the charm and I'm very happy with it.

What a fun tribute to "Alice in Wonderland"....a perfect showcase for your piggy. Well done and congratulations on your determination. I am sure that every step was a learning experience.
Kudos
