Finally the purse

Hi everyone, only a couple days late with my mothers day purse....lol....wow time seems to fly sometimes. I have also photographed the card that I gave mum this year. Generally, I like to make a special one for mum but time didn't permit this year, so I matched up the box with the Baja Breeze textured cardstock and some Urban Garden DS Papers with the matching build a brad. I made this purse smaller than my last one because I only wanted to put some pandora jewellery inside this time.
Now I had an email this morning from Beverley asking me to put my scissor beads on my blog, So here they are Beverley. Alison Charlton demonstrated these at convention so they aren't my original idea, however they are a fantastic idea and I love them. These are made from all the Beads from the Pretties Kit even the stopper on the end which I flattened with a pair of my husband's fencing pliers. If you have any jewellery making tools they would also do the trick just nicely. I dyed my pearls in Rose Red re-inker to give this soft pink look as you can see some of the rose red has come out of the inside after I put them together. If you would like to no anything else please just email me. Cheers!

WOW - you've been busy working on all your Convention tips!! Great work with the scissors - the pink is really pretty! And love the bag and card - I got pandora for Mother's Day but mine didn't come in such nice packaging!!!
