I have been inspired to create some Club Scrap projects during the Olympics! I am have joined a group of my friends at the Coffeehouse Forum in the Craftalong Olympics Challenge! I have pledged to make 10 projects. I have many kits sitting in my craft room that need attention. So this was the perfect challenge for me. However, the first project I decided to work on was not an official Club Scrap project. Let me start from the beginning.....
Tomorrow is my 25th High School Reunion! This is a huge milestone. I actually still live in the town where I graduated from. I just couldn't bring myself to leave, it is that nice of a place to live. I am really looking forward to it. I went out shopping for an outfit and found it. A plain black tank and cool orange red skirt. I already had the shoes, some cool silver wedges! But the outfit was quite plain and needed something to perk it up a bit. I needed a piece of jewelry to finish the look. A necklace, something big and bold! But, I couldn't find anything that fit the bill. So I decided to create my own. I went online looking for inspiration and found this beauty on Pinterest. So I went into my box of Club Scrap paper scraps (POPS) and chose some oranges and reds that would compliment my skirt. Made a base necklace out of left over pieces of silver chains and findings and even repurposed some Mike's Hard Lemonade bottle caps.
I made holes in each one using my Tim Holtz drill. Then linked them all together with some jump rings. Added the chain and findings and voila, a necklace!
Wish me luck with seeing all my high school friends. And please I love to read your comments and would love to hear what you think.
Thanks for stopping by!
