PUPPY LOVE - altered Clothespin

This coming week a very special friend will be having a birthday. SHE LOVES DOGS so I wanted to make her a picture frame for her furbabies but I didn't want to just alter a frame.

Remember the Turkey Thanksgiving altered clothespin I made?? Well this is exactly what I had in mind for this project. I was going to personalize it with the dogs names but opted out because this way she can change the pictures as she pleases.

Here are more pictures:

Supplies: Cricut Expression; Large Clothespin: Creative Imaginations; Cardstock and pattern paper: CTMH and Doodlebug; Corner punch: EK Success; Ribbon: Papertrey Ink; Frame: Accents Essential Cricut Cartridge; Puppy Love tag: Paper Pups Cricut Cartridge; Scallop Punch: EK Success; Hemp; Misc Sewing; Distressing Ink: Tim Holtz; Felt Flowers: Hello Kitty Sizzix Daisy Flowers die; Pearl Brads from the Wedding Section of Michaels; Metal Flower: Deja Views

After I took the pictures, I added some Black Swarovski crystals to the front part of the clothespin - in the middle of all the flowers - it just needed that extra touch.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Hugs, T
