Very Groovy 80's crop!

It's time for our Awesome 80's crop and I'm really excited about my crop challenge for you all!

My challenge will be about Heavy Metal. My husband was a HUGE fan of all the various metal and hair bands from the 80's. Soooo, show us your best metal!

I actually got 41 eyelets (some of there are double set) and used two different metallic papers. The background is red velvet paper that reminds me so much of Ashley's coat.

The particulars: You must use at least 13 metal elements on your page! Your page must be a minimum size of 8x8; and should use at least one metal colored or metal "flavored" background paper! (Think blingy type paper, paper that looks like metal, etc... I used handmade gold metallic paper that was embossed and black steel cardstock).

Upload your layout to the gallery of your choice no later than midnight the 14th and link me here in my blog! I'll assign numbers (1 through whatever...) to each layout link and pick a number via a random generator. The winner will be announced here on the 15th. Wanna see what you could win? Check this out!

There's embossed paper, glitter paper, cardstock, glitter brads, chipboard, vellum phrases, flowers, rhinestones, decorator brads and, in true groovy style, a groovy banadana to wear while you're cropping! Click on the photo to get a really good look ya'll!

Don't forget to check out the next Groovy Gal blog, Lynnette's blog for the next challenge. Links to her blog and the blogs of the other Groovy Gals are in my sidebar. Don't forget to check it out where all the fun began at If It's Groovy blog for so many other groovy challenges! There's something for everyone!

Here are the awesome submissions I've had for my challenge. Thanks to everyone who sent in a layout! I love them!

Here are some of the creations I've made for other's in the crop!
Celina (Use a slogan from the 80's)

I used this slogan: Fatherhood: Not just a job; but an adventure.
(Hey - anybody know who that was REALLY a slogan for?)

Here is Jill's challenge (using a band from the 80's create a title or theme for your layout)

This is called Precious Time after a song by one of my all time favorite bands, Journey, by the same title. The journaling is the first verse of the song.

Genie's challenge is all about excesses. The 80's was a decade of everything to extreme's. So here is my project. I used an overload of chipboard on this altered item.

And here's my layout for Lynnette's challenge! We had to create a layout about our favorite fad, toy or icon. I will always love Cabbage Patch babies!

Amy's challenge is all about BIG HAIR. We all remember the big hair days of the 80's. The bigger the better. I was one of those gals who didn't go big. Never did. Never really thought I looked good in it. BUT! Have no fear. I've got a big hair photo for you guys! This is our little guy who was determined to have BIG HAIR for Wacky Hair day during Spirit Week at his Elementary school this past February.

Well I thought I had posted this...

I had two lovely submissions for the challenge I posted using my sketch of the month for May. Silvana, who's layout is HERE created a beautiful layout for her mom entitled "Familia". Groovy Deb, our illustrious leader here at If It's Groovy posted a darling layout, "Baby", in our group gallery. Since I can't point you to our gallery, I'll show them both to you here!

Happy by Deb

Familia by Sylvana

I"m in awe over their choosing the same color palate! They're both just as lovely as can be!

So, since Sylvana gave two entries (one for linking and one on her blog) I gave her two numbers 1 and 2, Deb was 3. I used Random.Org for my random number generator inserting 1 through 3 and Deb was chosen!

Here is my print screen so you can check my validity:

Congrats Deb! Send my your addy!

Layout Share

Well, I'm very proud of myself. I actually completed 6 layouts for the month of May! 5 I can't share as they are for If It's Groovy for the month. One I can. We had a scraplift challenge at OSU and this is mine!

I love the challenges over there. I wish I could do more but my time has been so darn limited for two months now it's seriously nuts. I'm looking forward to July when thing actually slow down!

Say- speaking of challenges, June is the 80's Crop at If It's Groovy~! Each of us DT members is hosting a challenge on our blog. The crop is from June 4th until the 14th. While many of us have tons to do and can't spend 10 days on line, you can do these challenges in your leisure. As long as you have them done by the end of the crop, you are eligible for prizes! Now honestly, with 16 different blogs, I imagine you guys can complete just a few challenges in 10 days! So come on over and play! We will all be uploading our challenges on the 4th.

Don't forget about the monthly challenge at If It's Groovy either. This month is Candy Month! See HERE for details!
