Now for my project! 
I have been wanting a small pin board for the longest time..just something small enough to pin notes that show case things coming up, due dates etc..   I finally found some Adhesive cork sheets at a local craft store here in Finland and they were perfect for the 8x11 frame I had purchased a few weeks earlier..  Now, I added a little touch of mixed media, flowers and some chipboard elements and I have myself a pretty cool looking pin board.
This is sitting on my desk  and I can't wait to use it.. Need to go buy some push pins first..LOL
How about a few close ups and some details:
I absolutely love these wood veneer scrabble letters, the set comes with so many that I have lots of other projects in mind that I'll be using the rest on..

I used the Oh Say Can You Sea Shimmerz Paint spray ink on my white flowers, my cheese cloth and on my frame, which I had added some texture to with stencils and texture paste.. I decorated my frame using some of the gear embellishments (Gear Corner set) from the Creative Embellishments store.

We all get these little light bulb moments do we?..LOL  I thought this was a perfect embellishment for my pin board frame.. added a few cork butterflies, to match my background of course :) 
and there you have my mixed media pin board.. It's going to get a lot of use..
