The Dollar Store Challenge

The Dollar Store Challenge was certainly a challenge. But I was committed to make something and posting it. I chose an Easter theme and made a cross. I used a glass from a picture frame $1, flat glass marbles $1, a napkin holder to hold up the glass $1 and a miniture plaque $1. I didn't have any hot glue sticks so I used doube sided tape I had on hand.I taped the vertcal part of the cross with three 3 in a column and 12 rows. There are 9 in the row for the horizontal part of the cross with 3 in each column. I taped a few accent pieces on each side of the cross and I taped the plaque at the top which reads "Prayer is how I'll make it through Lord, these prayers I give to you."

Accepting this challenge took me out of my comfort zone which is designing jewelry. I will certainly try another challenge again so I can continue to stretch myself. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else came up with.
