Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog ~Challenge #8~

Welcome!  This is Challenge #8 for Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog!

This challenge is "Show Us Some Metal Or Glass".  Do you hoard gears, pins, brads, eyelets, and other metal do-dads?  Do you have a thing for tiny light bulbs and glass vials?  Do junk drawers make you giddy?  Do you hang out in office supply stores so you can score funky paperclips?  Do bottle caps make you swoon?  Dig through your hoard to find something metal or glass (or both) and make a project to share!

Our sponsors this month are Really Resonable Ribbon and Sin City Stamps.  Here's the prizes from these companies.

Here's my Design Team Project for this Challenge.  I did a Mixed Media Layout and I used some of the beautiful April Ribbon Club Assortment "Gray and Yellow Mix ribbon from RRR and the "Let The Adventure Begin" stamp from Sin City Stamps along with several metal pieces.

Challenge rules are HERE.  Make sure to link your project using the link tool on the CHACB site.
