Valentine Necklace and Bracelet

I decided that me and the girls need to make Valentine necklaces and bracelets for our AG dolls.  I went shopping at Hobby Lobby in Visalia on Saturday and found some really cute Valentine ornaments that look like those candy hearts that are so popular with the kiddos.  I bought 1 package and on Sunday we pulled out all of my old beads (I had a huge box full) and we set to work...and quickly got frustrated...the holes in the beads were too small for the elastic thread!  Back to the drawing board I went.  On Monday I went to Joann's and found some really cute beads that had bigger holes.  The only problem I had with them was deciding which ones to get because they were all so pretty!  I ended up getting 5 tubes of purple and pink beads.  Last night I decided to try making a necklace to see if it worked better before getting the girls involved again.  Here is a picture of the finished product.  I think it turned out nicely (and it went so quickly that I decided to make a bracelet too!)  The little flower on her finger is a nail art sticker.  We thought it made cute "rings".
