    Hey Mel... I was looking through your pics on Robin's site and saw the starfish/shell ring thing you used. Did you make it or buy it? I love it!

        Its on Robin's site, so I can post it... but its image 28 Robin DePaula Photography under the destination wedding gallery (Mel's). Looking again, its probably really simple to make, but I'm getting down to the wire and don't know if I have time to order shells

            Ohhhhh, I see it now. Jenn, you can totally check second hand stores. I bought a huge bag of shells there the other day! None that would work for this project. Also, A C Moore and Michael's and places like that have them, or I should say had that cuz I am not sure if they still do. But I know I have bought them from stores like that before.

              She actually posted on the forum here somewhere, she did make it herself. A bunch of us were making them at the same time. Here is the pic of the one I made, I can't help you with a pic of Mel's, but I am sure she will chime in any time now.

              I'm here, I'm here. Wow I feel so special... hehe

              I made it. I went to a local store called the seashell factory and bought the 2 starfishes there and then just placed them inside one another. I didn't use glue or anything, they just fit perfectly like it was meant to be.

              I know AC Moore has the big shells like i used but as for the smaller starfish I think you would have to find that at a specialty shop. Do you leave on the 19th? I could see if I can find one and ship it to you if you're interested in the little starfish?

                Mel can you post a pic of yours? I'm not sure what you mean about having 2 starfish... I thought is was just one. Good to know you made it though... maybe I can find something to do something similar. Did you use a knobby starfish?

                Sorry I'm at work and i don't have any pictures. I'll post one when i get home tonite though Jenn.

                Yeah it's a knobby starfish and it works for holding the rings. I was going to use a ribbon but decided against it last minute
