Practical Scrappers Weekly Challenge - Eyelets

This week at Practical Scrappers we are challenging you to bust some of that eyelet stash you got hanging around in your supplies.  You know you have it... so pull it out and create something crafty to play along with us for this challenge. 

Way back on May 21, at Practical Scrappers, Lisa designed this really sweet sketch, I especially loved it because I am so totally into banners right now. Unfortunately I didn't get a layout done to play along with that sketch challenge, so I decided to use it for this eyelet challenge.  Lisa's sketch looks like this (see above) (just in case you missed it at the Practical Scrappers blog). Isn't it great!!??!! Yep, I thought so too!

Okay so a lot of metal went into the making of this layout for sure!  I not only pulled out all the eyelets stops, I stapled in some metal too with Tim Holt's tiny attacher.  You can buy one for yourself right here.  I used patterned paper from two of my favorites, The Girls' Paperie and October Afternoon and my Cricut got a work out with the Mickey Mouse font to create my "Puddle Jumper" title and the stars.  And hey, don't forget about those eyelets I put everywhere I could think of to put 'em, they are from We R Memory Keepers Toasty Tin collection.  Add to all that the double-cute photos of my sweet puddle jumping grandson and you got a finished layout that made me oh, so happy.  I mean, cute kid, handmade banner AND banner paper, what more could a banner-loving gal like me what from a layout? :-)

Okay, now it's your turn to create something using eyelets and don't forgot to enter it over at Practical Scrappers so we can all admire your handywork!

Patterned Paper: On Holiday (The Girls' Paperie), One of Kind (Thrift Shop Collection by October Afternoon)
