Stardust Necklace

Are you sick of these necklaces yet? I surely hope not, because I have a few more to share (and maybe one to give away soon). How about a little blog candy? Yum yum!

This particular pendant didn't turn out as planned, but I love the results. I wore it 4th of July (and will definitely wear it more often!). It was supposed to be red, white, and blue, but alas, that was not to be. I began by cutting a piece of Cranberry B&T for the base of the necklace. Then I had fun with my Pazzles making the circles a bit smaller with a zigzag cut. When I layered the blue onto the Cranberry, I just didn't like how it looked. Instead, I kept the blue stars and let the washer show through. The three tiny white stars are rub-ons, and the three gems completed the necklace.

So am I the only one whose projects don't turn out like you planned? I'd love to hear your stories (successes and failures)!
Today, the girls and I are headed to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens to meet our cousin Megan, who is in town for a day or two. (Go, Braves!) We can't wait to see her and the gardens too! Yesterday we collectively picked two gallons of blueberries. Too bad we don't have time this morning for blueberry pancakes! We'll definitely have some soon though. We also had a blast hanging out with my sister and her boys at Vogel State Park! Gotta love the summertime!!!
