Craft Hoarders Challenge #9: Metal & Glass~

So excited to be sharing my second creation as a Guest Designer for Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog.
The challenge this time around was Metal & Glass.

Here is the layout that I created:

A huge Thank You to my friend Elena for the use of her photos of her adorable daughters. They were perfect photos for the patterned papers that I wanted to use. Amy Tangerine's Plus One Collection.

"Let's Get Physical"
When Elena left the photos with me she gave me the perfect title idea. Her daughter's bright clothing choices and her antics in the photos were just perfect for the 80's music reference.
The letter stickers were all by Thickers.

Now showcasing the whole point of this challenge, Metal & Glass.
I wanted to use multiple types of metal. So I used simple silver mini brads, a large silver paperclip, aluminum can tabs in green & blue, as well as large silver brads with clear crystals. The crystals are my version of glass.

If you look carefully, you can find aluminum can tabs in a ton of colours! Below is just a sampling of my collection:

Pop can tabs can be used as ribbon charms, tag tabs, border accents, to lace with twine and so much more.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I challenge you to play along with the challenge this time around at Craft Hoarders Anonymous!
