When I saw that the theme of this challenge was crayon and pencils I automatically thought about my friend Monica. She is always bright and happy just like crayons and she loves crayons! So I thought that this would be perfect for her.
I remembered that she asked me to make her a skirt one time, so I used this challenge as an opportunity to make it and add some crayons into the mix. originally I had planned to put more crayons into my crayon embellished skirt, but i got distracted and used up the crayon sheets making the bracelet. ^_^" hehe oops
I hope you enjoy what i've come up with...

in action ^_^:

**props to martha stewart and rebekah hodous, i combined their methods and came up with my crayon beads.

Wow, those medallions look like the Earth from space!  Beautiful.  The bracelet's a gorgeous accent to them.

I really like these!  Are the buttons on the skirt removable?  How do they hold up to being washed?  Are they sealed?
