A gift for my best friend!

Hi everyone,
                    A few months ago I made this necklace for my best friend, Jenny, as an early birthday present.

  I gave it to her when we went back to Newcastle but forgot, yes Miss shutterbug FORGOT, to take any photos of her wearing it. She has been having lots of problems with her internet but managed to send me these today. These are so easy to make and really dress up a plain T Shirt.

 Im about to make a whole pile for presents now. You can actually wear these up higher like in the pic or wear them a bit lower on the neck line and they look like they are attached to the top.
                                      Tell me what you think.

Hi everyone, no I haven't crept into some cave or fallen of the side of the Earth, LOL, I have just been really busy with the Christmas preps.
 This year I was determined to do something Christmassy every day in December. I  LOVE Christmas and everything about it.  In an attempt to be a "perfect Mum" and share my love of the season with the kids, I had grand plans.
With out going into too much detail that lasted for the first 10 days!!! I feel a bit guilty/ slack but know I tried my best. It hard to stop that itch to scrap. OK I admit it, Im addicted!!!
Oh by the way, during this time I also participated in Jessica Sprague's Inspiration class, which was fun, and COMPLETED, yes COMPLETED her course called Frame Ups and Photo Editing. That has to be the best thing I've ever done!!!!! I learnt sooo much and even though I had taught myself some photoshop techniques, it had been all hit and miss, and really didn't understand why I was doing it. Not any more. Im very proud of myself and have gone and brought two more classes.
Any way thought I would share my creation from Sue's December sketch on the E2C blog. I had to take a photo of this one rather than scan it due to the butterflies. I used the Echo Park, A walk in the park range. I love this range it soo bright and colourful.  Tell me what you think?
