Denim or Lace Layout for Practical Scrappers Brad Challenge

Hello everyone!!  It's Friday and that means it's time for me to post my layout for this weeks Practical Scrappers Challenge, which is to use brads on either a layout, card or any project you want to make.  You still have until tomorrow evening to upload your project, so come on and play along... you know you want to and you'll have a lot of fun, and who doesn't have brads laying around in their scraproom....  Here's what I came up with .  It's a layout of GD Savannah on her Grandpa's old 1940 Farmall "A" tractor that he restored, but still needs to paint...  She can actually drive this by herself in granny gear, but Grandpa still stands on the back, just in case... 
Here's what I used:
Recycled Cardboard
Tim Holtz Distressing Ink Walnut and Worn Lipstick
Crate Paper ~ Prudence Collection  ~ Hope
Thickers ~ Sprinkles ~ Lavender
Silhouette
Prima ~ Painterly Petals  ~Violet
Doodlebug Sugar Coated Brads
Say It In Crystals
Ribbon
Purple Jewels
Thanks so much for dropping by and  have a wonderful day!!
BTW be sure and check out the other projects the DT girls came up with.  You can find them on the Practical Scrappers Blog on the left hand side, just click on their name and it will take you to their blog...  They did a FANTASTIC job with this challenge!!
Please come back and visit anytime!!
Hugs  :o)
Pin It!

I really love this Fern. One thing I have yet to attempt is scrapbook pages. :) I have almost 19 years of catching up to do with my kiddos. It's a bit intimidating to think about. I really love the way you've mixed so many elements here and your granddaughter is so precious! :) Thank you for stopping by my blog too. Michelle

You did such a wonderful job on this LO! I especially like the fact that you recycled your cardboard and only punched out holes in the scalloped/die cut paper that you wanted. Those purple and green shades work so well together too!
