Make your own pins

Hi! If you have come to take part in:

Last Thursday there was a pin feature at Practical Scrappers, and we were asked to try and create our own pins, instead of using a ready-made one. I visited the jewellery section at my local crafts store and found some lovely beads and gold pins to decorate. 

I really love the special touch they bring to my layout, so I am already thinking of making a new trip to get more beads. Here is the complete layout, a page showing some pictures of my daughter "riding" a lion statue in Stockholm. She looks so little in them!

Pin It

Love your LO and the pins! I was reading and thought I was reading "this is my daughter on the lion in Stockholm and she liked it so much I have to make another trip there so she can see them" ...

Coming back here? We must meet!!!

What a cool pic of your girl riding a lion! Your pin looks cool too. I have a bunch of pins, but I gotta admit I never know quite what to do with them.
