Makers Gonna Make

I've been trying to get this project posted all week. How does the time fly so?
This is my latest hoop art in the series that I'm making for the inspiration wall in my scrap room. I used a teensy tiny apron that my sweet upline Ginni gave me for the fabric base. I save the ruffly bottom half of the apron to hem across the top so it can finally be worn - but the top was not big enough to stretch across the girls very well. I still loved the polka dots and hot pink embroidery, so I rescued it for this project instead of letting it linger in a drawer anymore. I was totally humming that Taylor Swift song the whole time I was adhering my sentiment in sparkly silver glitter stickers. I had to build some lowercase e stickers out of other letters, but a dab of silver stickles on the joints made them look like new!
Then I dug into my stash of all things sparkly and started gluing. How pretty is this big vintage-y rhinestone charm? I feel so much better now that it gets to be part of something fun instead of living in a box unused!
I ran a line of medium sparkles all around the edge of the hoop. That took some time and patience. I altered a few of the metal bits with older rub-ons. I cut apart the black sparkly flourishes to spread out the leftovers around the hoop. I'm linking up to the Paper Issues Perfect Pairing challenge, as I tried to bring continuity to my masses of random sparkles by using two of anything I could - the silver glitter disks, clear flowers, rhinestone buttons, and I added that LAUGH arrow too.

I'm off to finish typing scrapbook kit instructions, in the hopes that I'll be able to get around to making a scrapbook page that's floating around in my brain. I probably should take a nap with my sick kiddo, but... 
Makers gonna make, make, make, make, make!
