Delighted, Thrilled, Excited, Elated, Tickled, Ecstatic . . .About PAPER?

I've been waiting out here in this hot sun for so long my face is cracking! Is that the mail lady walking this way?  Is that "THE" package?
How can someone feel this way about PAPER?!  I'm sure there are at least a few of you out there in Blogland that know what I mean though . . . right?
LOOK!  "THE" paperpack! (Thank you Eclectic Paperie) . . .
Unlike most arts & crafts supplies I purchase, I knew EXACTLY what I was going to use this one for.  "Hurry up with the daggone photos, I'm burning up out here!" 
I had everything ready to go so when the paper arrived I could just jump in and get busy with my project . . .
Couldn't go to bed last night until it was completed because I want to wear it to the Jamestown Flea Market this morning to show Sheryl and Dianne.  This is going to be my new workshop sample for the 2nd Charm Necklace class I'm teaching at their store, Whimzy in June (more on that later).


So here it is . . .
And below is the reverse side of the necklace . . .
There are a few laser cut wood charms, vintage paper and just a little rubber stamping on my necklace, but the other papers are from the Lost and Found Paperpack.  I just love the papers included in that pack - so vintage-looking, which is right up my alley!  


I'm going to add some bling and a few other embellishments when I return home today, but I think it's ready enough to wear for one quick outing.
Oh, and that vintage baby doll that waited outside in the sun for my paper to arrive?  I recently adopted her from an Ebay auction.  I'll be back to tell you more about HER later.


Gotta run - Linda and I are meeting at the flea market at 8:30am and I haven't showered or had my coffee and it's already 6:45am - YIKES!  See ya later on today.

I am a paper person too. I love this style of paper a lot and will definitely need a packet of this. It looks great on your necklace and I love that it is double sided. The necklace is gorgeous.
