Hello and Happy Labor Day!!

Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway with a blingy project today!!

I made this set of wine glasses to donate to a very worthy cause.  I met a wonderful lady who organized a Women's Night at her children's elementary school where I was a vendor selling wine glasses last year.  Her friend recently was diagnosed with ALS.  They are having a Spaghetti Feed/Silent Auction in September to help raise money for medical expenses.

For more information or to help, go HERE.

When I sell wine glasses, I do not use licensed images.  I made the exception since I am donating these glasses.   I used my cameo and vinyl to cut out Huskers.

I added some bling to the base of my glasses.  I used red, black and clear gems and clear tiny beads.  
 I put Beacon 527 on half of the base and put my bigger gems down first. 
 I filled in with the smaller gems using a pair of tweezers to help.  I then put adhesive on the other side of the base and repeated.
 I put the small beads into a paper bowl and used my hand to press them into the empty spaces.

I let the glasses sit for 24 hours and then shook off the excess beads. 
I recommend hand washing only!! 
As a crafter, I love making things for other people whether I sell them or give them away.  I was very honored to be able to donate these!

The ice bucket challenge has been going around and I was challenged by 2 people.  My son Tanner was also challenged by 2 people.  My helper Kylie was challenged by one of our daycare moms (same lady who challenged me too)! 
We did our challenge together after school with the daycare cheering us on!!!
