Well this is the first time I have been in the BSBP. Meeting and friending Lori Anderson has been one of the Highlights of my life.  Finding all of you with your support, challenges and love is Amazing to say the least.  Thank you all for just being you.  Without further Adieu,  My partner is the fantastick CORY TOMPKINS of Tealwater Designs.  OMG was I blessed.  Here is the soup I sent Cory:
and here is the soup she sent me, we are both pink girls, Great minds thinketh alike!:
So the floral focal is created by Naomi Shaham very delicate is absolutely beautiful.  My Cory Collection consists of two pair of  Mismatched earrings. I used the green rondel beads to create my Cory Heart dangles. with Pink flowers, Swarovski crystals and a heart dangle. I then used the plum 5 mm glass beads paired with two beads in my stash made by Donna Millard with silver filled heart head pins and silver filled ear wires. 

Next I needed a Bracelet and Used  One of the Large Pink Gems, some more glass plum beads, a silver tulip bead that Cory sent. I added some Lampwork from Grace beads and Wa-Lah this beauty was created

  The beautiful toggle clasp on the Bracelet also from Cory soup.  Next the challenge with that beautiful Multi Clasp
I created this 3 strand  Piece Dela Resistance

I was so challenged, had so much fun. I am so excited to have been apart of BSBP7 and having you stop by.  Please visit my partner  Cory and all the other Participants.
