Gorgeous.  Everything goes together perfectly.  Great choices.

Do you mind sharing how you made the inchies into charms?

Not at all, I cut black cardstock into 1 inch squares and then cut the sheet music into slightly smaller squares making sure I got the lyrics I wanted on each square.  I used modpodge (glossy) and glued the 2 black squares together back to back and then glued a piece of sheet music centered on each side.  Then I used Stazon and a sponge and sponged the edges of each charm.  Next each charm got a coating of modpodge (one side at a time)and I put it on in a crisscross pattern (I like the effect).
Once dry, I used my crop-a-dile to punch a hole in top of charm and added a black eyelet.  Add a split ring and your done!  Grin

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

Stazon is a permanent ink for stamping. I have some and its really awesome it stamps on all sorts of shiny/porous/non-porous surfaces and leaves a nice clear impression, especially on detailed stamps. It is a bit fumey but I definately recommend it.

Back on topic: Carrieme, your craft is awesome. at first I thought they were microscope slide charms they were so shiny. Good job!

Thanks Ralph!  I had to laugh, I think Stazon smells good!!  I guess I have been using it too much for too long...  Cheesy But it is the best ink pad around I think.  Oh, it now comes in a variety of colors too even available at Michael's.

Hi Carrieme

That is really beautiful!

Are you going to make some and sell them, I'd be really interested being a very patriotic Scottish lady! lol

I moved away from Scotland to live in England and find myself terribly homesick living here.

I love your necklace!
