Don't know if I can do this...

I want to put one of our family photos onto a garden stepping stone.  I can't find one that someone else does that isn't a memorial.  So I may get a garden stone kit and print the picture on the tile, seal it, and set it in the stepping stone.

On Pinterest I've seen TONS of photo transfer things onto tiles. I might work similarly onto a stone.

Do it!  Look around on Pinterest because I've seen tons of pins and tutorials on them.  If you can do it yourself, then I say go for it.

I don't do Pinterest, can I access it without an account?

The video I linked to shows you how to do it. I'm not sure you can search on Pinterest without an account, but I bet you can find lots on YouTube.

 there are a few kits that include adding a picture, but I'm not sure how they secure it in there.

 I was thinking just a basic stone (concrete, etc) and printing on tile, using Mod Podge or somehow printing directly on the tile.  If I can't do that, I know someone who could print it for me directly on the tile.  Then making the stone and setting the tile in the stone, using the concrete to hold the stone in (little bits overlapping the tile, or some other way of securing it).
