Getting Cricky Blog Hop and Live Ustream

Yayyyyy...This is sooo exciting!!  I hope you can join us tonight for the live Ustream tonight with Kristal and our Getting Cricky family!!  '
It will be ton's of fun, plus Kristal is going to introduce the new members of our team!!  Be sure to check in at the following times to the link below.

The Blog Hop will begin right after the live Ustream so be sure to head on over to Kristal's blog to start, from there you will be able to visit the rest of the team.

Okay, so for today's project I didn't make a card or a layout, instead I decided to make ahhhhh.....wait for it....ready.....Washer necklaces!!! Ohhhh...I just love the way these came out and can you say EASY??!! Here check it out for yourself.

I know these are not the best photo's and it's hard to see the glittler but trust me they shimmer so nicely!!
All you need to make these great necklaces are: really big washers, scrapbook paper (any pattern you choose), Mod Podge, Glassy Accents, glitter, ribbon and of course K.Andrew Design stamps!!

Okay, so you start by picking whatever paper strikes your fancy, you then trace the washer on the back side of the paper (so you don't have pencil marks on the front of the paper), then you cut out the washer shape and the hole in the middle, add any stamped images if you desire.  Add Mod Podge to the flat side of the washer (one side is smoother and the edges are rounded, this is the side that will sit on your body) and attach the paper to the washer's unfinished/flat side.  Once the glue/Mod Podge is dry you apply the Glossy Accent on top and sprinkle with a little bit of glitter.  Let is dry for a few hours, then cut some ribbon and loop it through the hole in the washer.  Voila...You have a simple, inexpensive and good looking necklace!!

Okay, so I know that I said that I didn't have a card or layout for you to today but I fibbed!!  While waiting for the Glossy Accent to dry on my necklaces I put together a quick little card!!
