Lee says, KAYA and Happy birthday, Janis!

Pearl is also my birthstone so I was quite excited to do the challenge but I didn't have too many pearl embellishments. So it was a lucky break (?) when one of my pearl necklaces broke - my daughters were playing with it. I still have to have it re-strung but I don't think one bead would be missed. I used it for the center of my flower. I also used seed pearls I bought in one of my many trips to the south to form loops around the flower.

This is based on a Page Map so I was able to finish it quickly. The longest part was waiting for the crackle paint and the adhesive I used to attach the pearls to dry.

These are the magic years, and therefore, magic days, and therefore, magic moments. - Anonymous

About ME;
I am wife to a most supportive husband for 12 years now, mom to 3 KiDS, been a SAHM and scrapper for 3 years, and now a student of public administration in U.P. I am really trying hard to concentrate on the lectures and discussions in class, but more often than not, I find myself making scrapbooks in my head. I hope this is just a phase or I will never hear the end of it from my husband. Please drop by at my blog for other layouts. Thanks for looking.
