I have been super bored and someone mentioned stick pins. I wanted to take a few photos of how I have used mine. Well that last one is just a recent page that I did and had a ton of fun making it. Really TON of fun! These are just the pages I had out on my desk and I did not want to hunt through my books to take more photos of already done layouts. I tend to use plain stick pins because I have no way of decorating them. The metal heart one is an actual stickpin for hats. Yes, I sand papered it and no I do not feel bad about it. It will be forever kept in my scrapbook and thats better than it being tossed.
The good news is I found my niche and my crafty fun area. I love to rip things, I love to distress things and then add beautiful flowers or darling ribbons. Heh, I can finally do away with the simple designs I thought I love and go to town roughing things up, in a pretty way.
