WIP ~ My Challenge piece for the Retreat

Halloween is the beginning of my Holidays and will continue until January 8th. I LOVE Halloween so I decided to create my challenge piece with that in mind. I got a bit crazy with the pin cushion and the skeleton pin became a mini pin cushion as well :) This goes to a special young lady that just discovered 3D art recently. Hope she likes it as much as I enjoyed making it :)

Pin Cushion

The Reno/Iowa Retreat is around the corner. Our classes are full and we are all packing and getting our supplies and artwork together. We are having a Pin Cushion Stealing extravaganza :0 Here is my contribution ~ my favorite bug ~ a Dung Beetle ! lol I could not make a basic pin cushion nor have I ever made one but once I put my own twist to it I found it enjoyable. There is a hidden compartment for pins and he is "Bernardized" with many Swarovski Crystals and yummy clear micro gems. I have another one in the works :)
