Birthday Bracelet

My sister celebrated her 30th Birthday at the end of March. After seeing the necklace in this post, she requested I make her something similar in a charm bracelet for her birthday. She also requested I put pictures of her nephews (my boys) in it. Well, I finally finished it and shipped it off today. I made 1 bracelet, but 3 sets of photos/pretty papers to put inside. The charms are double sided, so the photos below show both sides of the charm. Here they are:
Black and white photos with black, white, and gray paper, and a rhinestone accent make this an elegant option.

I used Stickles to add sparkle to the flowers on these charms.

Sepia photos and a pearl accent go well with My Mind's Eye's Ooh La La paper.

I printed the photos at home on photo paper. I had an easier time sizing them that way. I wanted to make sure my sister could handle the photos without smudging them up too badly, so I sprayed a clear coat sealer over the top. The bracelet and charms are from Stampin' Up!'s Simply Adorned line. All of the paper is from My Mind's Eye (Andrea Victoria, Ooh La La, and Pretty Please) .
