New Challenge at Twisted Tuesday! Challenge#60! YAAAAAY!

Hey Everyone!

Has it been 2 weeks already!?  I've been a busy bee over here.  Trying to get the last bits of summer fun in over the weekends with the family.  The weather has been wonderful these last few days (except today but it got better as the day went on).  Can't wait for all the leaves to change colour.  I love Autumn!

Well, there's a new challenge up and running over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges!  Challenge #60 (ALREADY!!!).  This fortnight's theme is: Heavy Metal!!
Challenge: Use alot of layers (i.e. heavy)
Twist: Use Metal on your creation.

LOVED this challenge!  I dug deep into my stash.  As it turns out I really like the metal embellies and have a lot waiting for their moment to shine!

Here is my creation!

patterned paper: MME; sentiment stamps:PTI; hat stamp and crochet flower: Recollections; metal grommets, photo turns, corner edge:Making Memories; tag/scalloped lable: Maya Road; die cut woman and letters: Quickutz; copper wire: Dollar Store

 I bent copper wire into flourishes and attached to layout with copper brads.

I wrapped a circle punched piece of cardstock with white yarn and coloured strands of it with markers to get a similar pattern as the ball of yarn in the logo.  Tooth pics mimic the knitting needles of the logo.
Hats Off to Liz is a group of wonderful ladies who volunteer their time and talents to create hats (chemo caps) for cancer patients as well as baby burial gowns/blankets/hats for babies who grow wings and fly off before/soon after they arrive on earth.  For more information or ways to help make a difference please check out our website or check out this link.  I am so very proud to be a part of it!

The grommets used in this layout are at least 5 years old.  I have them in many different circle sizes and in brass, copper and silver.  I also have them shaped as flowers.  Used MAYBE once in since I've had them!  The scalloped label and tag I've had for a couple years.  There's more where those came from...all awaiting their time!  I'm glad these ones found their way out!

Be sure to join in all the Twisted Fun over at Twisted Tuesdays and check out my fellow DT members for inspiration and show them some commenting love!

I can't wait to see what you create!
