  75. Congrats on the DT! and i love, love, love your layout! how fun that it is YOU in the prom pictures. A beautiful girl and a beautiful LO!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I just realized why I didn't see that the necklace was the same one you wore - I was looking for a necklace with the black gems on it! Now I see that they are the Black Noir Gems that we got from CC. Little slow here sometimes - sorry! I keep coming back because I really love the way it adds so much to the LO. I will be scraplifting this idea definitely!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Yvonne, you are sweetly silly! yes, I'm sorry I didn't explain what I did now... I attached the necklace to the page using the MM Noir Gems just in case I ever want to actually wear the necklace again I can remove it from the page. I love that you keep coming back :-)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Thanks for all your help Paula I hope I linked up correctly..I have such a headache now...:(

    ReplyDelete
  79. great idea with the necklace, I accidently posted twice and don't know how to remove the extra, sorry
