On Pins n Needles

Uploaded: August 28, 2004


This photoshopped picture is of my wife's pin box. I removed the color from the photograph, removed the background of the gold stick pin and then placed it within this photo. Just one of those rainy day projects : )

Thanks Amy! I have been wondering around our house trying to find things to take pictures of. I suppose I should probably wait until winter to do that, when it is way cold outside :) #741123

Thank you very much for your comments. I had lots of fun with this and it took some time but I managed to end up with what I was looking for. Best regards from central Alaska! #806115
