Ode to the Pin-Up Girl

Technically, a Pin-Up Girl is a glamorous gal whose photo/picture is meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall. I think Betty Grable is probably the most popular pin-up ever, but my favorite has to be Ms. Cassandra Rosebeetle.

My favorite Pin-Up Gal EVER!

A few months ago I had a request to make a custom Pin-Up Gal Journal. Johanna loves pink and wanted to add lots of journaling and vintage family photos to the journal. She sent me a copy of a page from an old Pin-Up Girl Calendar for inspiration, so I decided to go with a stripes and vintage black photo corner theme.

 Adorable pets were often added to make the calendars both cute and sexy!

 I added journaling cards in pink, purple and yellow.
All in all there are over 35 tags for photos and journaling.

This is one of my fattest journals ever!
 I loved making this journal and hope that Johanna loves it as much as I do. If not, it's going up for sale at Inside The Beehive. If I can bear to part with it. Do you love Pin-Up Gals? Or are you one?
