My 1st Pinterest project

I don't know about you but I just LOVE Pinterest!  I love the ideas and the crafts and the projects that it inspires.

My first ever Pinterest project didn't require much but I love it all the same.  Here is the inspiration for the project...


And here is my finished version.


I just used white pearl straight pins to keep the outfit and announcement in place the way I wanted them and then just placed the "E" in the corner and shut the door.  Voi La!

I got the shadow box from Home Goods for $15, the "E" came from Michaels for about $3 and the announcement was a left over.  Eli's outfit was a gift from a friend and he was so cute and tiny in when he came home.

I have so many other projects I want to do but there just never seems to be enough time.  In the meantime I will keep dreaming and "Pinning".

Also, I entered The Pinterest Challenge over at Happy-Go-Lucky

What a super idea that beats stuffing those special outfits in a drawer, for sure! I pinned it on my board so more people would find your pics.

Aw, I just saw this on Pinterest and thought - LOVE!

And then I loved it even more when I clicked through to the post - because the pink and black shadow box project is my tutorial. :D

Yours is so adorable - love that little outfit in there!

Just by chance I found this on Pinterest and thought, I'm going to do this!
Then I read your instructions and thought 'How strange, my son's called Eli!' Then I thought 'How weird, this was posted on my husband's birthday.' Then I thought 'Wow, you are a twin and so is my boy Eli, to his brother, Dante.' I will be doing this project, it's a sign!!
