Brad Challenged !

I must admit, I'm not a lover of brads. I think it may be partly due to the fact that I move stuff around constantly on my page, and well...once you've got a hole in your layout your options are kinda limited. I collected all kinds of brads when I first started scrapbooking and was trying to find my groove. Now like many other scrapbookers, I have tons of brads- in different shapes, sizes and colours that i'm not using. They'd probably be great as flower centers, but then that would mean I was actually using my flowers too!

Well as part of this week's Brad Challenge at Practical Scrappers I stepped out of my comfort zone, and created 3 cards using brads.Who knows...maybe, just maybe, I'll start to love them again.

 

  

  
Happy Thursday!
