6th of the month!

Pin It
It's the 6th of the month!
...and somehow, that month is January of a NEW year!

The Limelight Chicks have a project to share today and our theme:
something wearable

First is a cute little box to package it up in:

I used paper from the Basic Grey 6x6 Indian Summer pad...LOVE the colors in that pad!

I finished off the top with a sentiment from Sweet Affections, May Arts Faux Suede Ruffle Ribbon in Brown and a Basic Grey Button.

Now...what's in the box?

THIS was a recent challenge over on SCS and I couldn't wait to try it out!
I made a necklace and keychain.....

Both use papers from the Basic Grey Indian Summer 6x6 pad.
I embellished with Chocolate Pearls.

I used a 1mm elastic cord from the jewelry section at Michaels... This way it'll 'strtech' as I put it on over my head and the 'shrink' back to 'normal.'

I'm going to use this as a keychain... I just love the browns and bling!

More Basic Grey Indian Summer paper...
And this one is embellished with Bronze Rhinestones.
