I Just LOVE the Name Chloe!

This is the piece I am doing for the winner I referred to in the previous post "Updates on Giveaways Elsewhere." Silverhartgirl a.k.a Jess has a daughter, Chloe, that is 10 years old and we are designing the 5x5x1 inch painting for her. They looked at my blog together and they both liked the pink and brown polka dots, but like most 10 year old girls, Chloe loves hearts and "draws them on everything." So, it took me about a week to decide how to incorporate the two although they gave me pretty much free reign. I was going to do hearts on the front, but I figured she may grow out of those in a few years and may still like polka dots. So, I am doing the polka dots on the front and some cute, kind of swirly hearts along the great 1 inch sides. The hearts I have chosen are kind of skewed a little and then have a "tail" that circles around, kind of like a kite. Yeah, I know, that sounds a little crazy, but it will be cute when it is finished. So, here is what I have done so far. I really like that she can hang it diagonally or horizontally or sit it either way as well, but she will need a little plate holder or something to sit it diagonally. What are you guys thinking about this?
