ABC Friday at TSG

     It's ABC Friday at There She Goes today.  That means the project I have to share with you is Anything But a Card.  I've had these huge clothes pins in my stash for a while now just waiting to be altered.  Since I wanted to make them picture clips I thought this would be the perfect time to make one with my camera trend idea from Wednesday plus I managed to include some blue and yellow from the challenge too.  LOL


     I used some black cardstock and papers from the My Mind's Eye "Dilly Dally" collection to cover the clothes pin.  I stamped and colored the camera, fussy cut it  and popped it up on top of the clothes pin with some Tim Holtz film strip behind it.  I used one of the push pins and sentiments from the stamp set and added them to the top portion of the clothes pin.  Easy peasy and lots of fun.  The photo is my great grandparents with my aunt and my mom shortly after she was born in Galveston.
     I'll be back tomorrow with my last project for the week, my Stampbook Saturday.  See ya then!
