A change from the norm

Haven't done any scrapping for a while but I wanted to share my latest creation.

A friend of mine has a lovely little necklace with little round 'dogtags' with the initials of her children on it and I thought it was a really sweet idea.

I thought it would be nice to have one with the grandkids initials.

After looking online (and seeing how expensive they were!!!) I thought I'd make my own. I raided my stash and found these little hooked letters but unfortunately I was 3 letters short!

Plan B!!! I found 3 brads, folded down one of the prong things to make a loop and cut the other one off, and hey presto - 3 hanging initias!!

I finished it off with a leather thongy thingy and added a few beads I'd got hybernating in a cupboard!

I think it will be fun when I wear it watching people trying to make out what it says!!


  1. The first thing I did was try to work out what it said :D it looks really professional too

  2. Lovely Tracie & I think it looks even better for having the mixed letters.

    Love the new blog look too - suitably weird!
