    Thanks everyone! Here is how I explained it over on Dizpins before:

    The main frame is actually an $8 cork board and the outer frames are $3 8x10 and 8.5x11.5 document frames. The backing for the outside frames is two sheets of foam board for $2.50 a piece. Throw in a can of grey spray paint for $3 and a few hundred pins that......let's just say they were lying around and leave it at that ...... $58 and many hours later...... TADA!!!!! I taped tracing paper to the cork board and drew the Mickey. After that it was just a lot of careful placing and when I was done I tore off the paper. And that's it!

    I probably worked on the Mickey over two nights so maybe 6 to 8 hours total. The Tink went faster in setup because I knew what I was doing by then but the pin placement took a lot longer because I didn't have as wide of a selection to choose from. Besides my Stitches, Halloween, and some series pins, most of my keepers make up the Mickey and Tink. I even had to convert some traders to keepers!

    Oh my god! I echo everyone else's sentiments as well! Superb job! the Mickey and Tink silhouettes are genius and very well executed. Kudos! *standing ovation*

    As for the Tink pics not showing up, I had trouble viewing them as well while at work. Apparently they are hosted on a different site than the other pictures, and since my company blocks MOST blog and forum sites (thankfully not this one :p) they didn't show up for me. So you might be having trouble downloading from that particular site as well.
