Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - Entry #3

I have had some extra crafty time lately, and I am loving it! :) Do you ever pick up cheap odds and ends with no real purpose in mind, and then tuck them away for a rainy day? Well, it has been pretty rainy here in Florida, and often too hot to go outside (when is fall coming to Florida?!?!) so I have been hybernating in my craft room, and loving every minute of it.

Anyway, back to cheap odds and ends... I LOVE the Target Dollar Spot. A long while back, I picked up a few of these large plastic clothespins for a buck. I believe they still have wooden ones in the frames section of Target, but they are about $6. I have been trying to challenge myself to make something other than cards, so when I came across the giant clothespin that I had hidden, the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge came to mind. The inspiration photo is of a baby onesie held on a line with clothespins. I took one of my favorite pictures of my hunky husband and I, printed it in black and white, and altered the clothespin using the Perptual Bliss stamp set.

I have it sitting on my shelf in my craft room :)
