This weeks challenge at Practical Scrappers is to use brads. So I used a couple "ring brads" (white that are open in the center, like a doughnut) and lots of red, white & blacks in various sizes on this really cool "Sheer" (even though it's black) from KI Memories. So, this layout is particularly unusual for me, since I used patterned paper as my background (I ususally use cardstock)....so you can see I even used some paint to "soften" the pp, but in my opinion it's still too busy looking. Oh well....always trying new things!! Oh yea, and I got to tease my husband about having his "back-side" posted all over the internet.
