Lasting Memories Challenge - Digging for metal!

This week over at Lasting Memories our challenge for all of you is "Digging for Metal!"
I love this challenge! I finally got to break out my Tim Holtz and grungify!

For my layout I started a new album that I have the honor of making for someone's wedding! The style they want is using the Once Upon a Time stack by DCWV which is GORGEOUS but very challenging to work with since the papers are so busy and pretty with glitter and ink splotches and images. I can tell I am going to have fun with this :)

Here is my layout, for some reason I chose to start with the end first... lol
This was a very quick and classic page for me, I finished it in only 2 hours which is veryyyyyy fast compared to some of my other ones. But that is what is so great about these papers, you don't need to do much to them to make beautiful pages! I matted my photos on white cardstock, inked them with coordinating browns and tied some jute, done! I'm so proud of this layout and so far she LOVES IT! 

Here is a Tim Holtz time piece popped up on glue dots

Some jute I bought at Wal-mart and a metal embossed charm by Making Memories 

A metal Tim Holtz hinge clip tied with some jute, to clip on my journaling bag/tag. The little paper bag is by Canvas Corps. Sooooo cute! and stamped with a date stamp for her to fill in

I left the tag blank so she can fill in her own story, I inked the edges and misted it with some gold Perfect Pearls and stamped with a Hampton Art stamp. I finished it off with some purple ribbon, held on by tiny attacher staples by TH

I hope my digging for metal page has inspired you to come join us over at Lasting Memories!

Happy Scrapping!
