Fab's Big Steel Brads!

Hi folks! Less stressy day today. Shorty had to go to the hospital with a suspected broken ankle, but it turned out to be torn ligaments. Just as painful, but I can send him back to Uni without worryng to much. And Chunky Monkey managed to upgrade X-box in 5mins and only disconnected the tinternet once! Chunky Monkey's best friend turned up for breakfast! A text from his mum said "send him back if it's too early" but once there here I find it's easier just to keep them. I told him we're going to nickname him "Tapeworm" cos he's always saying he can eat anything and not gain weight hahaha! So with Shorty on his bed "facebooking" and Chunky Monkey & Tapeworm wrestling on the trampoline, I've been able to make 5lb of Blackberry Jelly(jam with the bits seived out), a fruit slice and a card for my blog!!!
It's for this weeks Fab's Big Christmas Challenge#14, Big Brads and Steel Grey. The image and papers are all from various MCS cds, matted and layered with silver mirror board. The Brads were plain silver metal, so I put small double-sided rub ons on them and added white glitter. I think it came out quite well! What do you think?
Love as always Gina x x x
