It's all pinned up!

Well, clothespinned anyway! LOL! I purchased these 2 oversized clothespins a while back and finally did something with them! Our son and his family went to Disneyland recently and posted these beautiful pics of our granddaughters. I thought, ah ha!! So, I dug out some of our great designer papers and started playing.

Both clothespins were painted to coordinate with the papers chosen. The one on the left is covered using the Sands of Time SWIC and the one on the right is covered with Penelope SWIC.

I used the stamp set, Always Remember, for the text on both clothespins. Here, on the one above, I stamped the text with Gingerbread VM ink, and used my Extra Jumbo Circle punch to punch it for use. I layered it on a large white flower that I also stamped. I found a button that kind of matched the green in the paper and added the scrappers floss (white floss that I inked with the Gingerbread), and adhered with my 1/2" Glue Dots.

Here I layered the image on a piece of purple cardstock from our Penelope Cardstock package. I stamped the image in Jumbo Java VM ink and added the Penelope Ribbon. The little purple paper posies added a feminine touch in my opinion. What do you think?

Also, don't forget to enter my drawing! Go the this POST and follow the directions! I'm not getting many commenters so your chances are good!
