To BEE or not to BEE..that is the question

too BEE or not to BEE 

Mouth Uno   creepy mouth      

Mouth dos uncreepy mouth

I was originally going to post a monster...but school just started so I needed a full MONSTER free week before I could deal with more (even though he's pretty cute by my standards).

But this Bee came to mind when I looked at profile pictures on facebook and some of the funnest ones are when people are close and looking directly into the eye of the camera.  I wanted to have a profile picture that was worthy of me, and color me purple but I couldn't find one that I actually felt a kinship with. There weren't any that could represent (thumping chest like I'm on the MTV music know the COOL people do that).

So I came up with this ample bottomed bee that resembles me,
you see?
Notice how the eyes are a lovely shade of green
to replicate me?
The mouth, however, is much to small for husband
will attest to thee.

So possibly poetry is best left in the hands of the professional poets poetic people. 

I used my new cuttlebug machine to emboss texture on her and I changed her shape slightly, to more of an oval for the project below, used some stickles on the key parts eyelashes, atennae tips, and cheeks, and voila a BEE as sweet as can BE. I divided and attached the layers via pop dots (this coming from my buddy Thienly, papercrafter extraordinaire).

Both mouths are included in the SVG file because my daughter had a conniption fit over the human like mouth, "Mom! Oh no that is just CREEPY! Give her a bee mouth..." whatever that was but the round surprised mouth is the one she deemed "uncreepy" and didn't cause her head to spin around.

**Now for my disclaimer...if you download the file and make something with it, now mind you it has to be amazing, I'll take the credit for it. If you make a million dollars off of your creation YOU BETTER SHARE dang it or I'll send Guido and daBoys after you. Or maybe I'll make you babysit after I give my kids a box of LUCKY CHARMS and orange juice....yah that's scary, isn't it? What kind of loon wouldn't part with a 1/2 mill to avoid that?! Anyhoo where was I....???...Oh yes..Remember that I suck at this papercrafting business and need all the help I can get, you know, to look like I have any talent.
