My dearest

Gerri's vacation is almost done, she be back tomorrow and I can't wait. In the mean time, I will be showing you a sweet necklace for her Retro Cafe Art Design Team. I thinks its darling, don't you.

It all started with the sweet dollie image from the Retro Cafe Art collage sheet called Hello Dollie 2. That was placed in a RCA Gothic Arch shrine that was painted with Ranger crackle paint.Retro Cafe Art has fabulous shrines that can be used in so many ways. The shrine is filled in with lacquer  to protect the image and give it a finished look.  It was trimmed with Stickles and tiny pearls in the corners, then with a ribbon bow with flowers to frame the little dollie. In the tiny hole at top it reads  "my dearest." The piece was put on a pearl strand that can be worn long or lopped around as seen in my picture.

Hope you will find your "dearest" this week.
take care, Mary Lou ( for gerri)
