Another NZ Dare Layout

Well they posed another challenge. This time we had to use metal, A lot of metal or a little metal. it didnt matter. I had a hard time with this one because I dont like using metal on layouts if I can help it, so I used a lot of brads. When I finished, I found a tiny metal jar in ne of my drawers. So I used the metal lid for a frame of a tiny picture I had of Stacey and I. the I remembered I just bought some sticky thank yous from staples and since We were at Chili's I put metal "gracis" on the bottom. And for once I found a use for he bunch of birthday ribbon I have. The Layout came out better than I thought, but still not one of my favs. i won a lot of pretty designer paper on ebay last week so soon i'll have some nice variety in my patterned paper. Oh, the last picture f of the metal lid on my layout, so you can see the dimensions. I think I'm the only American that does their challenges, well at least one who submit. I like the NZ gals beause all the other challenges I do have to do with themes like "Time" or "When I was young..." or "Moms are...." but they use product and it is a good excuse for me to use some of the stuff I have laying around.
