Well, It's Was All Yucky Anyway!



Yep, yucky! A victim of my soaking of cat
food cans...and forgetfulness!
So, what the heck, what did I have to lose?
I just put the glue directly on the plate!




Then the glitter...
like I said, what the heck!




I just got this idea...how cool would a plate
covered in glitter be?




And how the white shells would look against
the blue!





It was so easy and could be done with any
color you wanted to match your decor for
a special occasion.







And although I didn't take a picture
(because my night pictures are always
terrible!) tea lights on a glitter covered
plate make quite a light show!



And if you use an "Elmers-y" type
of glue, you can actually just soak it all
right off...to glitter again another day!


No head over to Sally's to see what
the sane people are up to this
BLUE MONDAY !
