    Thanks so much, Olive, Lynn, Nancy, Alice and Cindy!!! You all are too kind! :D

    Yup, Lynn lol I had to use my snowflake obsidian beads in there as always LOL but my sister also loves snowflake obsidian so it worked out lol. :D

    Nancy not really it actually came together pretty quickly. Once I picked out the agate slice I wanted to use it all fell together lol. :D

    Cindy, I sure do love when that happens!! lol Thanks! :D
