Scrap The Boys June Challenge

I first laid out supplies and rough layout for what I wanted to create shortly after my exam and Today I found the time to stick things down while the kids played with their friend who is visiting for the day.
The Scrap The Boys June Challenge was a fun challenge as I used metal buttons I got in a jar from the op-shop and parts of the broken necklace I used on my Altered Book.  I also used 2 of the view finder dies cuts from the July 2015 Just Add Paper Kit from D'lish Scraps.
I grabbed out a assortment of black papers and grey papers to play with.
I attached the metal components with Glossy Accents and then finished them off with a coat of Glossy Accents to seal them.
 
The chain wound up going down differently to how I wanted but I still really like the results.


So will you be joining in the fun of Scrapbooking Challenges?  I look forward to seeing your results.

    1. Thank you.
      When I saw the broken necklace the metal swirly bits really struck me as great for a layout with my boys.

  3. OMG OMG WHERE DID YOU GET THE MERMAID FROM? I have had a layout in progress for nearly a year now of a friend who went missing off his trawler. He always said to me someday I wont come back because I will of met my mermaid... I have been after decent mermaid stuff since it was heartbreaking.
