Happy Day

This was such a happy day indeed! I had so much fun crafting with my niece. I am not sure who came up with the idea, but we decided to decorate rocks so that she could turn them into necklaces.  She collected a handful of small smooth rocks from one of my flower beds.  Then she picked out different colors of acrylic paint and painted them.  After the paint was dry, I helped her coat them with Glossy Accents and different colors of coordinating glitter.  Once they were dry my Mom helped her attach them to jewelry pieces and cord to create one of a kind necklaces.  They really turned out super cute!!! I don't have a picture of the finished necklaces, but if you look below I do have a close up photo of one of the painted & glittered rocks. 

For my layout, I used the My Mind's Eye Tangerine Collection! I was the lucky winner of one of the My Mind's Eye blog challenges recently and this was the collection I choose. I was amazed at how generous they were with what they sent and I have really enjoyed playing with all of the goodies included in my prize package! Thank you so very much My Mind's Eye!!!

Here is the image of the rock I mentioned above:

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!!
