MY Kind Of Candy!!!

Happy New Year!!! (I kinda feel like Frosty sayin' that. *Wink*.) I hope your Christmas and New Year were as wonderful and restful as mine were.

I'm super excited for this new year! I love the fresh feel January brings---not to mention my birthday month. Yep, I said month. I like to milk it for all it's worth and load up on all the sweetness and giftys while I can ;-)

Soooooo, in honor of my birthday month, I thought I'd make myself a little candy. Pretty, sparkly, wearable candy!

I took my inspiration from the most recent SOG challenge. The gals over at Some Odd Girl posted this pic on the blog and set us out to create whatever the photo inspired. Immediately I saw the hearts and the book, and you know what I think when I see book pages???

JEWELRY!!! (((No offense to all you hard-core book lovers out there! You'll be happy to know that this book died of natural causes. It fell apart from being used until it just couldn't hold itself together anymore.)))

I took some of their FAB digi images and shrunk them WAAAAAAAAYYYY down, printed them onto kraft cardstock and colored them up with my Copics to create some cute 'lil charms. The resulting charm is only about one inch in size!!! SUPER cute and just the right size for a charm bracelet.

There's a boy, a girl and tons of sweets!!! I love that they kinda look like me and my Sweety!

On the reverse side of the charms is my answer to conversation hearts.

You'll notice that the words are created from teeny tiny woodgrain alphas!!! I got that sweet little set in my prize loot from their Holiday Hop :-) LOVE!!! Thanks girls!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
