Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge: Brads or Eyelets

Stamps: Paper Pretties 'Beach Bum Cooper'. Cardstock: Real Red, Yoyo Yellow, Papertrey white, Memory Box 'Beach'. Ink: Memento black, Copics. Accessories: Rectangle Nestabilties, Heidi Grace brads.

Welcome to this week's Paper Pretties' Wednesday Challenge! Our challenge this week is to use brads or eyelets on your project. Midnight Madness Sketch #70 was the perfect inspiration because it already had the dots built right in!

Our weather is already turning more autumn-like (at least for now!), so I was definitely was in the mood for Opus Gluei challenge #70: Fair-well to Summer . See my bright fair or festival colors? And I'm already wistfully remembering pool fun. Memory sure beats the reality of chlorine-dried hair and sunburn!

Doesn't Cooper look like he knows how to enjoy the last bit of summer?


If you like bargains, you'll really appreciate this little Cooper -- the bare rubber set, including two sentiments is on clearance for only $5! The Heidi Grace brads used on my card are also a bargain at 80 pieces for $1.99.
