Anything Goes - First challenge of the new year!!

The theme this week at Anything Goes is 'Eyelets and brads'.

I have done my old favourite, a scrapbook layout of Emma, what a shocker. There was no room left for anymore eyelets and brads on this page. Every flower has a brad of various size and texture and there are silver eyelets set around the page. I had an idea to thread ribbon through them, but I have not remembered to buy the right ribbon yet, some lovely pale blue organza at Craft den, which I forgot to buy last night. The journal tag is actually one of my business cards, covered in paper and is also attached via a brad through the ribbon (the one I need to buy more of). I don't know why they gave me about a 1000 business cards, I only give out about 5 in a good year! I decided it was a waste to buy more ATCs so I'm using these instead if I am covering with paper. I have used up some old papers from my stash for this one, I am trying to be good to make room for more!

Anything Goes Challenge will now be a fortnightly challenge so you will have 2 weeks to come up with your gorgeous creations, and we promise to visit a little earlier this time! I was still visiting entries for the last challenge set before Christmas yesterday, but I think I will have to stop blaming Christmas now and just get organised!

We had a lovely class at Craft Den last night, making a lovely caged bird using a template designed by Lynne and Tim Holtz caged bird sizzix dies. I have added some more details when I got home last night so I'll post that tomorrow. Have a good evening!
